The cross country course has proven to be difficult in the CIC3* competition for the award of the patron Mr. Roman Roszkiewicz during the Equestrian Festival in Baborówko, as only two pairs finished without penalty points and in time: Oliver Townend (GBR) aboard Cillnabradden Evo and Maxime Livio (FRA) with Pica d’Or. The leader of the FEI ranking has taken the lead after dressage and kept it for the following day, finishing the cross country course without mistakes on obstacles and in time: 6:55 minutes. Before showjumping the British eventer has a 4,5 point advantage over Maxime Livio (FRA).
Maxime Livio (FRA) can certainly be happy. After dressage in the CIC3* the French rider was fourth with Opium de Verieres, 20th with Pica d’Or and 34th with Vitorio du Montet. After the challenging cross country course, Livio is second with Pica d’Or (finishing clear and in time) and 18th aboard Vitorio du Montet (with 14,4 penalty points for going over the time limit).
