Poznan, Poland – December 18, 2022 – Fifty riders from 12 countries took part in the PLN $202,900 PKO Bank Polski Grand Prix CSI 3*-W, for the prize of PKO Bank Polski, under the patronage of the Mayor of Poznań, counting for the world rankings, Cavaliada Tour and World Cup Central European League. The first course was quite technical, and poles fell throughout. 10 riders managed to go clear, so the jump-off promised to be spectacular. Victory ultimately belonged to Remco Been (POL) with Holland VD Bisschop.
“When I walked the course, I thought it was possible for me to go clear and get a good result, so that was nice. I think the course designer did a really nice job. In the jump-off I had to take some risks, but I chose to take a longer route between 1 and 2, and it went well. I was a little bit nervous watching the other riders, 10 rounds are a long time! [Holland VD Bisschop] is a very careful horse and always wants to fight for me in the arena. It’s my first time at CAVALIADA and I think I have to come again!” – said the rider.
Second place went to Sweden’s Irma Karlsson (SWE) with Chacconu, and third to Niels Kersten (NED) with Grieg S. Jarosław Skrzyczyński (POL) finished just outside the podium with Inturido.
