on 12 April 2016
The Valkenswaard United duo won the opening round of the Global Champions League at Miami Beach

YOUTH and experience combined to produce a win for Bertram Allen and John Whitaker in the inaugural Global Champions League at the weekend.

The duo paired up to jump Quiet Easy 4 and Lord of Arabia respectively for Valkenswaard United, one of 12 teams competing at Miami Beach.

Two riders for each team took turns to jump the course, with their combined penalties and time determining whether they would go through to the second round.

The Antwerp Diamonds team of Audrey Coulter and Harrie Smolders took second place, while the Miami Glory duo of Georgina Bloomberg and Kent Farrington took third.
