CHI Geneva

Swiss victory in the Coupe de Genève

The five last highly desired starting spots for the Rolex Grand Prix on Sunday got assigned this afternoon in the legendary competition of the combinations. Pius Schwizer, Christian Ahlmann, Jeroen Dubbeldam, Nadja Peter Steiner and Darragh Kenny can breathe easy. They will be at the start tomorrow in the main event of CHI Geneva. But these places have been hard won! Not less than 15 pairs made it into the jump-off, where six of them rode to qualify for the Rolex Grand Prix. Regrettably, the outcome was no happy end for the winner of the Canadian leg of the Rolex Grand Slam, Egyptian Sameh El Dahan.

However, the participants in the jump-off did not only fight for the coveted starting ticket for Sunday, but also for the victory in this competition. In the end, Pius Schwizer impressively won the Coupe de Genève, almost a second ahead of his pursuers Darragh Kenny and Nicola Philippaerts.

Experience paid off

Earlier in the afternoon, in the Youth Challenge, presented by the Swiss Team Trophy, youthfulness challenged experience. And it was almost logical that this special competition, carried out in the format of a Nations Cup, was won by the All Stars formation of already well-established champions (Bertram Allen, Janika Sprunger, Lorenzo de Luca and Pénélope Leprevost), ahead of the team of the Swiss Young Riders (Pauline Zoller, Alexia Jacques, Mathilde Cruchet and Edouard Schmitz).
