Devos Puts World Cup Behind Him With LGCT Mexico Win

Showjumpers rarely have time to reflect on the past as they fly from one show to another  and Pieter Devos was the epitome of that idea  when he won the Bamorte Trophy at the Longines Global Champions Tour of Mexico last night.

Last week suffering a spectacular elimination at the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final, when in contention for a win, the Belgian rider made no mistake on Claire Z, who was super fast against the clock and gave Devos the win over  the USA's Beezie Madden and Coach.

 Pieter said: “It is an unbelievable show here. We went last, which is always a good position to go, and it was a fast jump-off with a big ring with long galloping lines. I felt [Claire was] fast in Doha, and I thought I’d try let her go - I’m really together with her now.
 
"The crowd give you absolutely everything. There’s almost no other show like this in the world, people screaming my name, from the very beginning you can feel the energy, it’s incredible."
 
The penultimate day of the Longines Global Champions Tour of Mexico City came to a close with many of the top names in showjumping battling it out to win the Banorte Trophy. With €146,000 in the prize pot, all were aiming to land on top of the podium.
