Moments of great emotion and suspense were experienced during the development of the second day of the Longines Global Champions Tour Mexico presented by GNP Mexico Jumping, which culminated in the victory of Riesenbeck International in the Global Champions League Trophy presented by GNP Seguros.

After the change in the sporting format of the event, and with the two Global Champions League events back-to-back, the best international riders provided the best of entertainment. Out of the 16 teams, only Riesenbeck International achieved the double clear, with the pairs formed by Philipp Schulze and "Clemens de la Lande" and Christian Kukuk with his great "Mumbai".

In second place, with 8 points accumulated in the second phase of the GCL, were the Paris Panthers, who also repeated combinations: Jur Vrieling at the helm of "Comme-Laude W" and Gregory Wathelet riding "Ace of Hearts".

Madrid in Motion, after arriving from Miami leading the league, stepped onto the third step of the podium, with Eduardo Alvarez Aznar riding Bentley de Sury and Maikel van der Vleuten with Beauville Z.N.O.P, who competed in the second GCL event replacing Laura Kraut who competed in the first phase making her debut with the team with "Baloutine".

The three teams received their trophies from the Founder and President of the Global Champions League Jan Tops; from the Risk Director of GNP Seguros, Jesús Zuñiga; from Juan Manuel Cossio, President of the Mexican Equestrian Federation, and from Alvaro Arrieta, President of Oxer Sport.
