The Longines ranking class has just ended in Saint-Tropez. Because of the heat, it was decided to ride this class in the morning instead of in the afternoon. The victory once again went to Emilio Bicocchi. Last week he already won two CSI4* classes at the French riviera.
This tile he saddled Evita Sg Z (v. Verdi TN) to ride a clear jump-off in 36,71 seconds. The second place went to the fast Frenchman Julien Epaillard. He cleared the course in the saddle of Usual Suspect d'Auge (v. Jarnac) and finished in 37,84 seconds. Titouan Schumacher and Atome Z (v. Amadeus Z Brimbelles) completed the podium after a clear jump-off in 38,83 seconds.
Jos Verlooy (Fabregas) and Jur Vrieling (VDL Glasgow vh Merelsnest) completed the top five.
