The last news from the beach of Pampeloune couldn’t be better, the team sponsored by Massimo Dutti and Marqués de Riscal has been proclaimed winner of the seventeenth venue of the Global Champions League.

There were few opportunities to score points and Madrid in Motion has not missed the occasion. Looking back to the season, there was no doubt that the Van der Vleuten’s come together really well and, once again, they have shown it again.

On Thursday, September 12, the first qualifying round was disputed and no team managed to finish with 0 accumulated points. A course designed by the Italian Uliano Vezzani, in which Maikel needed 2 additional seconds to the allowed time. His father, Eric, also exceeded the allowed time in addition of the 4 points because of a pole down in the last jump of the course. In total 6 points put them in third position before facing the final round.

Today, Saturday, September 14, at 1:45 p.m., the second and decisive round has begun. The last one in Europe before the grand finale of the GC GC Playoffs in November.

Brilliant the course of Eric with Wunschkind 19 and Maikel riding Beauville Z. Both pairs finished their journeys without faults giving a recital in the complicated arena of Ramatouelle. Only another team achieved a double zero, the Shanghai Swans, but these have had to settle for the second place of the podium.

Another first place for the Van der Vleuten’s that throws them directly to the fourth place in the final ranking, and only 6 points from the third, currently in the hands of the London Knights. A position they must hold if they want to qualify directly for the final of the GC Playoffs. Therefore, New York will be, in addition to a novelty in the calendar, a challenge for Madrid in Motion that must face it calmly but without losing the objective, maintain the position.
