Bertram & Buddy fourth in the prestigious GCT Super Grand Prix in Prague
Proving their standing among the top contenders, Bertram and Pacino Amiro delivered an outstanding performance, narrowly missing the podium in yesterday's prestigious €1.26 million Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix at the GC Prague Playoffs.
The two-round 1.65m competition brought together 16 of the world's top riders, all of whom earned their qualification throughout the 2023 Longines Global Champions Tour season.
In the first round, seven pairs secured clear rounds, while all other combinations, including Bertram and Pacino Amiro, finished with just a single rail down apart from Philipp Weishaupt and Coby 8 on 12 faults.
Coming into round 2, Bertram and Pacino Amiro delivered a brilliant clear, placing them among the seven top combinations, finishing on only four faults after two rounds. With no double clears, it all came down to the fastest round among the four faulters.
No one could beat the speedy combination of Julien Epaillard and Dubai du Cedre, who claimed victory in an impressive 57.49 seconds. Henrik von Eckermann and King Edward finished on a mere fraction of a second behind Epaillard, while Max Kühner and Up Too Jacco Blue claimed the third spot in 60.41 sec. Bertram and Pacino Amiro secured a fourth-place finish, narrowly missing the podium with an impressive time of 61.04 seconds.
