CHI Geneva

11th victory for Boyd Exell at CHI Geneva – young talents on his heels

Boyd Exell is the undisputed star among the worldwide drivers and has once again won the Geneva leg of the FEI Driving World Cup™. Thus, the number of the victories of the Australian driver in the arena of Palexpo is now up to eleven. But Exell's advantage over his rivals was not as impressive as one would have expected. With a total of two faults and only one behind the Australian, the representative of a talented young generation of drivers showed a remarkable performance. The only 25-year-old Dutchman Bram Chardon would have even won the driving competition without the one ball down at the end of the drive-off. The son of Ijsbrand Chardon, who himself in earlier years had often competed as well in the arena at the CHI Geneva, stayed calm and extremely competitive and classified ahead of the Hungarian senior Jozsef Dobrovitz. At the top of an experienced team - including his 20-year-old mare Demi - Boyd Exell consolidates his first place in the World Cup intermediate standings.

The Swiss Jérôme Voutaz finished the race in fourth place after an unusual mishap: on the first water passage, one of his two grooms lost the balance and fell off the vehicle. Getting off with a fright she was able to get on again, but the five-seconds penalty prevented Voutaz to qualify for the drive-off of the top three.
