Henrik von Eckermann starts his Rolex Grand Slam cycle at The Dutch Masters

The Rolex Grand Prix at The Dutch Masters - Indoor Brabant was won by Swedish rider Henrik von Eckermann. With this victory the Rolex Grand Slam cycle has started for the 47-year-old number six of the world.

Fourty riders started in the first round and five world class riders reached the jump-off. Henrik von Eckermann took the victory with a very fast clear round with Toveks Mary Lou. Runner-up was the world’s number 1, Swiss Steve Guerdat with Albfuehren’s Bianca. Third place went to another Swedish rider, European Champion Peder Fredricson with his Dutch-bred H&M Christian K.

Best Dutch result was achieved by Maikel van der Vleuten with Verdi TN, who finished in sixth place.

Another great achievement was the course design of Louis Konickx. With the world class line-up for this Rolex Grand Prix Konickx knew he had to design something special and that is what he did. It was high, technical and the time allowed played a decisive role which had the spectators sitting on the edge of their seats.

During the closing press conference the riders were full of praise for the show and the organisation.
