A fantastic performance
from Tipperary’s Shane Breen and America’s Jessica Springsteen, daughter of
rock legend Bruce Springsteen, has seen them take victory for Miami Celtics in
today’s Global Champions League competition which was held at the foot of the
Eiffel Tower in Paris.
1. Miami Celtics - 2 penalties, 147,87 seconds
2. St Tropez Pirates - 4 penalties, 143,07 seconds
3. Shanghai Swans - 5 penalties, 137,98 seconds
Breen and Springsteen were
on a zero score in second place following Friday’s opening competition,
slightly behind leaders St Tropez Pirates who had a faster time. Today’s
decider saw Springsteen jump clear with RMF Zecilie, adding just a time fault.
Breen matched that score when also finishing with a time fault aboard Ipswich
Van De Wolfsakker to leave the Celtics on a final score of two faults. When St
Tropez Pirates first rider, Edwina Tops-Alexander dropped a pole with Veronese
Teamjoy, Miami Celtics were crowned winners. St Tropez Pirates finished as
runners-up while Shanghai Swans took third place on the podium.
The Paris result moves the
Miami Celtics team, which also includes Galway’s Michael Duffy, up to second
place on the league table just three points behind leaders Shanghai Swans.
