French rider Jean Marie Martin was one of the 15 participants in the Puissance for the Prize Euphony. Together with Belgian rider Jean-Christophe De Grande he was the only one to clear over the wall of 2 m10. In the last jump off both riders tried to jump the wall of 2 m 27, exactly one centimeter higher than the previous Mechlen record. A brave Jean-Christophe (son of former puissance specialist Jean De Grander) tried but Boccacio EC demolished a part of the wall. Jean Marie Martin, on his thirteen year old Selle Français Johnny Boy made a fantastic jump and made the crowd go crazy. Sponsor Euphony has to pay him a bonus of 15 000 Euro on top of the 15 000 Euro prize money in this class for breaking the record.
