of the fastest couples in the world won the CSI3* Grand Prix in Munich on Sunday; David Will and Mic Mac du Tillard (Cruising x Galoubet A). The 1.60 competiton presented by Deutschen Kreditbank AG was the last leg of the 2015 DKB-Riders Tour, and counted almost fifty riders where thirteen of them went on to the second round.
Against the clock, the German rider and Mic Mac du Tillard played with their competitors. The pair was five seconds faster than runner-up Michael Jung on Sportsmann-S (Stolzenberg x Calido I), making it to the top in a league of their own. Carsten-Otto Nagel made sure that the podium was all-German as he took the third place riding the 14-year-old Holiday by Solitour (Contendro I x Cascavelle).
Bliss Heers from the US was the first rider to break the German domination, ending fourth with Prado K (Prado x Dynast). Dutch rider Ben Schröder was the slowest one of those with double clears and ended fifth with Lu Lu 11 (Contact Me x Levantos II).
“In the first round I had an unfortunate fault,” said Will – who is the first rider in Stall Gugler in Pfungstadt, Germany. “But, I know the rules and hoped that I would make it to the second round with my fast time.”
And so he did. As first to go in round two, David went all in and nobody could cath him – all those that tried had to risk all and paid in the expense of faults. Afterwards, Will was proud of Mic Mac du Tillard; “She is 16 next year, is still really fit and in the form of her life.”
