Maikel van der Vleuten wins with VDL Groep Sapphire the Grand Prix of Maastricht

MAASTRICHT- With a spectacular round have Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Sapphire won the Grand Prix of Maastricht 2013. Maikel surprised everyone in the barrage with an unexpectedly sharp turn for a obstacle to create a very fast time.

'' Before I came into the ring my father told me that there was the possibility for a quite sharply turn to the right after the second last fence. When i came into the ring I took a look at it and saw that it was extremely tight, but it was possible. I came out perfect at the oxer and when I pointed out to right Sapphire was very alert and almost faster than I reacted. From then on it was full gas to the last fence. "said Maikel, who was the only one of the eleven riders that maked that sharp turn.
