Pius Schwizer set the crowd on fire when winning the BMW X5 Trophy early in the day aboard Balou Rubin and besting a long list of top riders in the evenings 1’50m Prize of Grand Hotel Les trois Rois.
Eight pairs managed to stay clear over the 1’50m against the clock track but no one could stop the clock under the 60 seconds like Pius Schwizer and Courtney Cox (Carlo) who claimed his second victory of the day ahead of Austria’s Max Kühner and Cornet Kahlua (Cornet Obolensky) while Pieter devos and his home bred Gin D (Clinton) settled for 3rd.
