Again it was Lundmark who took the top spot.
"It is my first visit to Poland, and I liked it very much in here. The competition was super good - perfect weather, nice jump and good riding. I put down the tricks as I wanted, so I’m glad of course. I am the most happy with my Double 1080 Mute to Japical” – said the winner just after the prize giving ceremony.
