For their last show of 2019, the most French of Columbian riders Carlos Enrique Lopez Lizarazo and his experienced G & C Arrayan won the Masters One Laiterie de Montaigu on Saturday night. Last to go of the seven pairs who had qualified for the jump-off, they managed to shave 0"13 seconds off Julien Epaillard and Toupie de la Roque's very fast time,of 34’’48 to pip them to the post. "Julien is no doubt one of the fastest riders in the world. To catch him, you have to give it all. (laughs) It seemed possible to gain time in two turns. I managed one, not the other. But my horse was fast enough. I'm delighted for him and also for all the team around us", said Hubside rider Carlos Enrique Lopez Lizarazo.

Thanks to the only other double clear (in 40’’71), Roger-Yves Bost and Castleforbes Vladimir took third right ahead of Switzerland's Martin Fuchs and The Sinner and Bryan Balsiger on Twentytwo des Biches, who both had one down in the jump-off.
