MacGuinness with Chamaille Des Aubus, Donahue with Horseware Roble BH Magdalena, and McNamara with Horseware HLM Fontana crossed the line together in 12th, 13th and 14th places respectively which was a fantastic result given just 35% of the field managed to complete the full course.

The Irish trio completed the course in just under nine and a half hours with an average speed of 16.9 km. The result is a massive boost for Irish Endurance riding ahead of the 2021 European and World Endurance Championships.
