Thirteen couples had an appointment to touch the stars in the impressive “6 bars” event, which ended in style on Saturday at the HUBSIDE JUMPING in VALENCIA.
After a first passage at 1.55m where twelve competitors passed without a hitch, four jump-offs were necessary to decide between the best. A first jump-off at 1.70m eliminated three couples. For his part, the German Marco Kutscher and Zypern 4, victorious at this height, preferred to stop there. At 1.80m, two other couples bowed, and the Portuguese Rodrigo Giesteira Almeida, in the saddle on Icloud, decided to stop despite a passage without a hitch. Climbed to 1.92m, the penultimate jump-off will have eliminated three. For the final passage, at the prodigious height of 2.02m, there were only two left: the Frenchman Thomas Leveque and the Briton Lily Attwood, respectively associated with Casting de Rueire and I’M Emerone. First to start, the Habs suffered a refusal from his mount on the last obstacle of the line, but did not want to try again. By overthrowing the final bar, the young rider then imposed herself.
