Freddy Mercury sang it with Queen, this past week end Top Riders embodied this mantra in team groups during the last week-end of September: dreaming to end the Nations Cup circuit (orchestrated by Furusiya) with "A Kind of Magic"!
The song starts kind of Irish: Denis LYNCH (SOFT'UP PRO/LIBERTY EVO) riding All Star take the Longines Cup, whereas Bertram ALLEN (SOFT'UP PRO) and his National turned International Molly Malone finish in 7th.
Their "instinct guided them": the Belgians ! That team including Olivier PHILIPPAERTS (SOFT'UP PRO) rang the victory bell high and loud. Great Britain and Laura RENWICK (SOFT'UP PRO/LIBERTY EVO) were not far in the mix in 2nd, while the United States of Beezie MADDEN (SOFT'UP PRO) ened up in 4th.
The last verse was sang by David WILL (SOFT'UP PRO) and Mic Mac du Tillard who won the GP in Samorin CSI4* just ahead of Marc HOUTZAGER (SOFT'UP PRO) on Sterrehof's Uppity.
