Cicero 7th in Rolex FEI World Cup!
December 30 at 4 o'clock the World Cup of Mechelen began.
Lucien Somers had build a demanding course for the 40 strong
combinations. As Bert Prouvé said on Sporza: "I
definitely think that the course is on the World Cup level:
a classic course, heavy oxers which are very broad. It will
certainly be the horses with a lot of power who will come up
As 14th our own Cicero Z van Paemel appeared at the start
Dirk Demeersman. After his course on Monday, Cicero showed
again his qualities. He had put up a breathtaking clear
round. Only 8 combinations were able to place theirselves
for the jump-off, including 3 Belgians: Yves Vanderhasselt (Adamo van't Steenputje),
Patrick Mc Entee (Ever Mury Marais Z) and Dirk Demeersman with Cicero.
They were the 2nd to start in the barrage in which one bar
Dirk Demeersman and Cicero ended on an amazing 7th place in
his 1st World Cup.
