Great victory for Johnny Pals on Urjul van Generhese in de Derby of Flanders - Memorial Nick Motmans.

 De derby of Flanders, a 1 m 60 course with some cross country fences, was not easy as usual. None of the 11 starters jumped clear and the best result was 8 points. The five riders with 8 points were allowed to go the jump off. Johnny Pals was the last to go with his 11 years old Urjul van Generhese, he jumped clear and was almost a second faster than Dermott Lennon on Gelvins Touch. 
Johnny Pals: "Last year I was second after the jump off. I was last to go this year and a friend who saw the first riders told me that if I wanted to win I had to go full speed from the beginning until the end. I did so and everything went well!. I didn't train Urjul specially for this competition. I was in Portugal with other horses and Urjul was ridden in the meantime by a girl at home as well as in competitions upto 1 m 30. Afterwards i trained him once on natural fences."
