Jumping Antwerp: Italian Guadiano is best
The excitement unfolded in front of a live audience las night, as ACCENTURE JUMPINGCLASH CHALLENGE riders took to the ring for the QualifyingRound. Each rider pitted against the clock in a bid to ride the fastest round and earn a place in the top four to qualify as a Challenger Rider, ready to take on our Seeded Riders later in the week.
With barely a second between their times Italy’s Emmanuele Gaudiano, Brazil’s Pedro Veniss, Belgium’s Constant van Pausschen and France’s Patrice Delaveau all rode a fast clear to secure their place as the Challenger Riders.
The Challengers will now go head to head with Seeded Riders Daniel Deusser, Christian Ahlmann, Eric Lamaze and Simon Delestre in the ACCENTURE JUMPINGCLASH CHALLENGE Quarter Final on Friday 21 April. The draw to determine who goes head to head will take place on Thursday 20 April during the JUMPINGCLASH CHALLENGE presentation at 17:30 in the JUMPINGCLASH CHALLENGE Paddock.
When Italian rider Emmanuele Gaudiano was asked who he would least like tobe drawn against, he said his fear was the flying Frenchman, Simon Delestre!
