Hippie: Steve Guerdat leads the World Cup – Sports: All the sports news


He is the world's No.1 in show jumping since the beginning of the year (eleven consecutive months!), Holder of the World Cup and now he takes as a bonus the orders of the European circuit of the World Cup, Steve Guerdat is on his little cloud. And to say that, as title holder, the Jura rider would not even need to qualify for the next Las Vegas final (mid-April 2020) …

Taking a nice 3rd place this Sunday in the Grand Prix Verona World Cup (ITA) with Alamo, the horse with which he had won his third final last April in Gothenburg, Steve Guerdat is indeed leading the circuit, ahead of the Swede Fredricson, 10th in Verona, the Italian Gaudiano, 4th here and 3rd overall, the Zurich's Martin Fuchs, No.2 World, who made a mistake in the initial course with The Sinner , Belgian Verlooy, 2nd Saturday in Toronto, and young Neuchatelois Bryan Balsiger, victorious in Oslo and 6th overall: three Swiss ahead!

Guerdat alone Switzerland in the 15 barrages

This Sunday, Steve Guerdat was the only Helvetian among the fifteen jumpers and he gave a demonstration, just like Scotland's Scott Brash, dazzlingly daring with Hello M'Lady, and the Irishman Darragh Kenny, 2nd with Romeo. "I could have removed a stride between the last two obstacles, but I did not want to take all the risks," Guerdat said.

With a fault at the start and a good time, Niklaus Rutschi and Cardano CH, excellent 2nd Friday, were 18th, Martin Fuchs and The Sinner 24th. Saturday, Fuchs had imposed with his new crack Tam Tam of Valon. The Swiss want some, definitely.
