Ludger Beerbaum and Chaman won Friday’s biggest class in Stuttgart. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Ludger Beerbaum went all in with Chaman (Baloubet du Rouet x I Love You) in the jump-off of the Mercedes German Masters in Stuttgart which gave him the win of this prestigious class.
Only 12 riders were qualified for the class, and five of them went on to the jump-off. Hans-Dieter Dreher was first to go with Embassy II (Escudo I x Silvio I), and it looked like his time would be very hard to beat. The following riders Steve Guerdat with Concetto Son (Concetto x Drosselklang II) and Bertram Allen with Belmonde (Ovidius x Kenwood) ended with 4 and 8 faults – also the last rider Marco Kutscher with Cornet’s Cristallo (Cornet Obolensky x Pilot) had to see a pole fall.
