Laureen Budde: the win she needed!
There were no less than 13 out of the 26 starters in the Masters Two Grand Prix - H jump-off (50% went clear!), making Laureen's victory all the more impressive. In the end, she had 1.66 seconds on the young Melanie Cloarec of France with her 11-year-old Umea from Pleville, and 2.09 seconds on American Sophie Gochman aboard 12-year-old Carola BH. In conclusion, it is an indisputable win for the young German in a class where the leading eight riders were women!
