In the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Cascais, it was a fierce battle between the world's very best riders. Teammates Martin Fuchs (SUI) riding Chaplin and Ben Maher (GBR) riding Explosion W went head-to-head in an incredible jump-off, only hours after they took the win in the GCL team competition. This time the victory would go to Martin Fuchs, and the Swiss star earned a standing ovation from local and international spectators in the stands around the beautiful grass arena for this breathtaking performance.
Meanwhile in the GCL team competition, the London Knights catapulted themselves into the overall GCL ranking lead after a phenomenal win from the unstoppable duo of Ben Maher and Martin Fuchs. After two extremely fast clear rounds, the Knights put pressure on the rest of the field but in playing to their team strengths, they were untouchable at the top of the podium.
