Not only did the World Cup Jumping stop in Leipzig, but the drivers also got to travel to the German city with their four in hand-team. Bram Chardon immediately made his mark by winning the World Cup opening class with an impressive Drive-Off.
After an exciting first round, it was time for the Drive-Off. Bram Chardon had a strong start and put himself in second place after the first round and was allowed to start the Drive-Off last. With Boyd Exell and Glenn Geerts as the strongest competition, Chardon knew what he had to do. The Dutchman was in a luxury position by being allowed to start last. Glenn Geerts did not disappoint and set the bar high for his competition. After Boyd Exell's round it was clear that Geerts would get at least the silver because the Australian could not match our compatriot. But Bram Chardon laid down the fire and snatched the win as the last one anyway. Bram Chardon won the Opening Class, without any hesitation.
