The Military Campo Marte, an impressive colorful stage, celebrated from april 11thto 14ththe second event of the calendar of the Global Champions League in which the team, sponsored by Massimo Dutti and Marqués de Riscal, ended in the equator of the final Ranking.

On Thursday, April 11th, the first competition of the Global Champions League began for the 16 teams. The two members representing Madrid in Motion were the Dutch Maikel Van der Vleuten, riding Idi Utopia, and his father Eric with the mare Wunschkind. Two fantastic clear rounds that gave the team an advantage to face the second qualifying on Saturday. Only 7 of the 16thteams managed to finish the day without committing any fault.

Complications on Saturday with an exigent course designed by the Spanish course designer Javier Trenor, any team could finish the second qualifier with double zero. On this occasion Madrid in Motion decided to make a change and Eduardo Álvarez Aznar, unanimous winner of the 1.50m class on Thursday, Broxel Trophy, was going to complete the team with Eric in the second qualifying course, riding Seringat. Three fences down for the Spanish rider, added to the four points that Eric had previously accumulated, placed the team in the eighth position of the final classification that is still led by Shanghai Swans.

With 31 points accumulated the team now moves to Miami with the optimism and desire of a winning team.
