Steve Guerdat tried with Nino Des Buissonnets, but finished with 47.25 as 2nd. As last to compete in the final round with the best time in the first one, Claudia Gisler with Cordel had a fault at the second obstacle, which made her finish as 13th in the final ranking.

Further Swiss riders in the ranking are Janika Sprunger as 5th, Nadja Peter Steiner as 7th, Christina Liebherr as 9th and Edwin Smits as 11th.
