This week's highlights take us back to Monaco, to one of the smallest arena on the tour, nestled in the former Formula 1 pit lane, with the magical back-drop of Port d’Hercule and the iconic Prince’s Palace. The world's best horses and riders arrived to face challenging technical courses where precision, speed, and scope were essential for success. The competition unfolded right alongside the super-yachts of Monaco, making this a truly unique destination for top-class show jumping.
In the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco presented by Tennor, Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) snatched the victory with Beuaville Z, with the crowd were on the edge of their seats. Barely a second separated the top four riders in a breathtakingly fast 10-way jump-off where Bassem Mohammed (QAT) and Gunder stepped up on the podium as the runner-up, while the lightning-quick combination of Julien Epaillard (FRA) and Usual Suspect d’Auge could only manage a third place finish.
Meanwhile in the GCL team competition, Scandinavian Vikings secured their first ever GCL win after Evelina Tovek and Geir Gulliksen kept cool heads under enormous pressure as the last riders to go in a high-octane competition. A beaming Geir said: “When [Evelina] jumped clear it made it easer for me - both horses jumped amazing today, we deserved this."
