Devoucoux Indoor Derby: French Karim Laghouag takes revenge
The very popular Devoucoux Indoor Derby, a “crossover” between a crosscountry course and a show jumping course, is undoubtedly Friday’s highlight at the International Jumping of Bordeaux. Deprived of a fourth victory last year by the Individual Olympic Champion, German Michael Jung, French Karim Laghouag had his revenge taking his fourth victory on Friday evening.
Steve Guerdat world number 1 in Bordeaux
Press release, 06/02/2020
The Swiss had been world leader for the first time in November 2012, then again in January 2019, a status he retained throughout the year before he lost it last January to his countryman and friend, the young Martin Fuchs. But this break will have been very short since the Swiss king has just regained his throne and returns to Bordeaux with his crown. A leadership he deserves not only on the sporting level, but also on a moral level, as this charismatic rider is the most fervent defender of the purity of this sport. An example? As the title holder, he is automatically qualified for the World Cup final which will take place mid-April in Las Vegas therefore he does not need qualification points. However, he wanted, as he does every year, to come to the Jumping International de Bordeaux because it is a competition whose values are in line with his.
