The renowned Jumping International de Bordeaux in France hosts the battle for medals at the FEI World Cup Vaulting and Driving Finals this weekend.

Bordeaux also hosts the penultimate leg of the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping this weekend.

World champion vaulters Nicolas Andreani (FRA) and Anna Cavallaro (ITA) will be pulling out all the stops to defend their titles against tremendous competition, while double world and European pas-de-deux champions Jasmin Lindner and Lukas Wacha (AUT) will aim to make history by clinching the first FEI World Cup Vaulting pas-de-deux title in the history of the series.  

The long-awaited FEI World Cup Driving Final will round off a breathtaking Bordeaux weekend on Sunday afternoon, when the four-time FEI World Cup Driving champion from Australia, Boyd Exell, will be going all out to win his fifth Final against a highly competitive field of drivers, who have equal chances to take the coveted title.

And a total of 38 athletes, including Longines FEI World Cup Jumping standings leader Patrice Delaveau (FRA) and Longines Rankings number three and four Ludger Beerbaum (GER) and Marcus Ehning (GER), will be chasing valuable points this Saturday before Gothenburg (SWE) on 2 March, the last chance to qualify for the Final in Lyon (FRA) 17-21 April.
