Cassandra Urschel caused a huge upset in the German jump derby at the Hamburg Klein Flottbek. The Hamburg-born player, who has competed for the Polish national team since 2016, relegated to the favorites and was the fifth woman to win in the long history of the classic.

“I’m so happy, it’s indescribable,” said the local champion, competing for her mother’s homeland, in tears after capsizing at the 91st course. “I never expected it.” “This audience here, this background – it’s amazing. Especially as a Hamburg resident.” It was Amazon’s first derby win in 47 years. Britain’s Caroline Bradley was the last female rider to win the Cline Flottbek in 1975.

160. Riding zero error is a long time to come

In front of 20,000 spectators, Orschel was the first to start in the competition’s 120,000-euro jump, achieved by a total of four pairs, each one tumbling. On the land softened by the rains of the past days, no one has succeeded without fault in such famous hurdles Wall, The grave of Pulvermann or Buschoxer is coming. Thus, it is still on the track that has remained virtually unchanged since 1920 at 159 clear runs.

Tim and Ovarth are third and fourth

In the decisive round, she and her horse Dakara stayed clear, while runners-up Frederic Tillmann (Grifenbroich) and Comanche made a mistake. Third and fourth place went to European champion Andre Thimy (Blau am See) with Contador and racer Sandra Ovarth (Ganderke) with La Vista with eight penalties in the jump, both of which were traded high.
