The PROSEGUR Grand Prix closed the CSI1* A Coruña program with the triumph of a local rider. Roi Calviño was the brilliant winner with Enjoy.

The class was competed by 15 riders and only four got the passport to the jump-off. On the way, both with a knockdown, the two theoretical favorites, according to their evolution in the two previous days, were left behind: Javier López Fraga with "Tik Tak de Pravia" and Jose Fumero with "Figuier du Roc". The Canary Islander lost in this way the opportunity to achieve a historic hat-trick, having to settle for fifth place.

Three Spanish representatives, Leticia Riva, Roi Calviño and Esther Barroso, and one Portuguese, Mafalda Costa, qualified for the barrage. The young Lusitanian rider was left out of any option to win by committing a knockdown in the back of Porsche with the chestnut "Oscar CG", while Esther Barroso from Madrid and "Baraka Louvo" repeat the clear round, but were more than 2 seconds behind the times scored by Leticia Riva with "Cadum de Champloue" and by Roi Calviño with the expert "Enjoy", being in the end third.

Leticia Riva opened the jump-off with her mare daughter of "Diamant de Semilly" and with a time of 30'08 she put the mark very high, pushing Roi to do his course under 30 seconds to win. And the rider from Abegondo accepted the challenge from the start of the course, with rhythm and stepping on difficult terrain, especially in the last two laps, to a vertical left hand and then right hand, to the double vertical-bottom that opened the final line to the PROSEGUR bottom that closed the course.

Roi Calviño and "Enjoy" did the rest in their final gallop, to be the only ones able to complete the course in less than 30 seconds and therefore become the winners of the PROSEGUR Grand Prix, whose trophy was presented to the rider from A Coruña by José Santos, Director of the Northern Area of Prosegur. Finally, after several editions being very close, Roi Calviño managed to win a Grand Prix in Casas Novas.
