With the final of GCL Berlin fast approaching the teams have been making crucial tactical changes to finish on top of the podium and boost their chances in the championship. The London Knights are in pole position and the home team Berlin Eagles are just behind them also starting today on a clean sheet of 0 faults. 

 

Unexpectedly London Knights substitute Martin Fuchs (SUI), who went clear yesterday, will be making way for Olivier Philippaerts (BEL) to ride alongside his twin brother Nicola Philippaerts (BEL) while Berlin Eagles feel confident enough to stick with yesterday's successful formula of Ludger Beerbaum (GER) on Casello and Christian Kukuk (GER) on Limoonchello. 

 

Elsewhere in the field, Prague Lions make the most changes today bringing in a whole new combination of Niels Bruynseels (BEL) with Delux Van T & L and Marco Kutscher (GER) who will change horse to his 10 year old Chades of Blue.

 

Current ranking leaders Miami Celtics keep under 25 rider Harry Charles (GBR) on consistent ABC Quantum Cruise. They bring in Shane Breen (IRL) on his top horse Ipswich van de Wolfsakker to help them try to climb up the leaderboard and stay in the overall championship lead. 

 

Last year’s winners the St Tropez Pirates retain reliable team anchor Pieter Devos (BEL) on his mare Jade v. Bisschop alongside Dani G. Waldman (IRS) and Lizziemarry who had an unusual pole yesterday.
