BW-Bank Hallenchampionat

For the second time since 2013, local rider Markus Kölz today won the BW-Bank Indoor Championship, the unofficial state championship, in front of 7,100 spectators in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle. In an exciting jump-off contested by the nine riders that went clear in the first round, the 37-year old raced around the course in 40.93 seconds on Etiche de Fribos to finish over one second to the good of five-time champion Timo Beck riding the ten-year old stallion Habicht CR (42.08).
