They were once again fault free over the third round of the class, but they have just one rail in hand over Sweden’s Henrik Von Eckermann and Toveks Mary Lou. Devin Ryan and Eddie Blue also jumped clear over the track to hold onto third place with 6 faults.

Last year’s winners McLain Ward and HH Azur dropped the back rail of the oxer at fence 8, making their total 12 faults overall for a five-way tie for fifth.

The final day of competition features two rounds of competition with the top 29 riders from the previous day returning to jump the first ride. Riders entered the day with penalty points based on their performance during the previous two rounds. Any faults earned today are added to that score.
