ocation: Global Champions Tour, Lausanne, Switzerland
Subject: It was a battle of the Legends with a capital ‘L’ in Lausanne last night when Germany’s Ludger Beerbaum and Chaman took on Britain’s John Whitaker and Argento in front of a hugely excited and supportive Suisse crowd, with the four-time Olympic Gold medallist Beerbaum coming out on top by just 0.81s.
Third place went to the relative newcommer on the Longines GCT Argentina’s José Maria Larocca with GDE Matrix, who finished one of just two other treble clears 0.84s ahead of 4th placed Gerco Schröder (NED) and Cognac Champblanc who jumped his socks off. With his win tonight, Beerbaum has stormed up the Championship ranking from 4th to 1st taking a narrow lead of 15 points.
