FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing: Michael Jung leads German triumph at Fontainebleau

Olympic and European champion Michael Jung and his wonderful 16-year-old horse La Biosthetique Sam FBW led the German team to victory in the competitive opening leg of the FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing 2016 at the weekend at Fontainebleau (FRA).

Jung and Sam also took the individual CIC3* honours for the second year running (Jung was also second on FischerRocana FST) and Sandra Auffarth, the world champion, came third on her great chestnut gelding Opgun Louvo; she was the only rider in the field without cross country time penalties, finishing exactly on the optimum time of 6 minutes 15 seconds.  

Their team mates, Jorg Kurbel (Brookfield Bouncer) and Andreas Ostholt (So Is Et), were also clear on cross country, although like most of the field with time penalties in double figures.

Host nation France finished second, led by former European champion Nicolas Touzaint (FRA), who knows his way around the twisting forested tracks of Fontainebleau well and finished fourth individually on Crocket 30, and European team silver medalists Thomas Carlile and Sirocco du Gers who placed fifth individually. Gwendolen Fer and Romantic Love, who came second in Fontainebleau last year helping France to win the series opening leg, were this year eliminated for a horse fall at fence 14.

Ireland, who won the last FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing meet of 2015 in Boekelo, placing sixth overall in the series, produced another determined performance in Fontainebleau and finished third, led by Jonty Evans, who placed 11th individually on his exciting Olympic prospect Cooley Rorkes Drift.

An all-male Australian trio led the dressage phase, but slipped to fourth when Andrew Hoy (Cheeky Calimbo) had a run-out at fence 10a. Bill Levett finished best of the team, in eighth place on Improvise.

A three-rider Swedish team finished fifth, led by the 2012 Olympic silver medalist Sara Algotsson-Ostholt riding Reality 39.

Great Britain, who won the FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing 2015, slipped from fourth after dressage to sixth out of nine teams with refusals at fence 18 for both Gemma Tattersall (Quicklook V) and Dani Evans (Smart Time). Izzy Taylor finished best of the quartet in 14th on Allercombe Ellie with the second fastest cross country time (2.4 penalties).

There were 49 clear rounds from the 71 cross country starters and 59 completions, but the optimum time proved influential around Olympic designer Pierre Michelet’s (FRA) track, which is always technically demanding thanks to its winding route around the ancient forest of Fontainebleau.

The course at the next FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing 2016 venue, Ballindenisk (IRL), a typically, bold Irish track designed by Peter Fell (IRL), could not be more contrasting, and promises an equally thrilling competition next month (22-24 April).

Sofia Sjöborg tvåa i Fontainebleau

Sofia Sjöborg har haft en framgångsrik helg vid den internationella fälttävlan i franska Fontainebleau. I den enstjärniga klassen blev det två placeringar av två möjliga.

Med nya hästen Faerlie Special red Sofia Sjöborg in på 43,9 straffpoäng efter felfri terräng och banhoppning. Det räckte till andraplats bakom segrande hemmaryttaren Victor Levecque på RNH MC Ustinov.

Det blev även en tiondeplats för Sofia som med DHI Mighty Dwight satte ytterligare en felfri terrängritt. Efter ett tidsfel i banhoppningen landade resultatet på 51,7 straffpoäng.

I den trestjärniga nationstävlingen, FEI Nations Cup Eventing, ligger det svenska laget på femte plats efter dressyren och terrängen

I den tvåstjärniga klassen ligger Sara Algotsson Ostholt och Wega på tredje plats efter dressyr och banhoppning.

FÖRHANDSINFORMATION

Till start kommer också Sara Algotsson Ostholt med Reality för att göra en lång tävling.
- Jag vill se en gedigen insats av de här ekipagen som är aktuella för en OS-start, konstaterar förbundskapten Staffan Lidbeck.

Han har ett svenskt lag om tre ryttare  tilll start i den trestjärniga klassen och FEI Nations Cup Eventing. Men med bara tre ryttare har inte Staffan så stort hopp om en högre lagplacering.
Tredje ryttare i den långa klassen är Jonna Friman med Lady-Grey.

Till den tvåstjärniga klassen är Sara Algotsson anmäld med OS-silverhästen Wega. Viktoria Carlerbäck kommer med tre hästar för att få en tidig säsongsstart.
