CURRENT EVENT: 2016 Doinker Masters


2016 Doinker Masters

For many archers the field course at Esch-sur-Alzette in southern Luxembourg is a hidden gem. The former iron ore quarry has long since returned to nature with many mature trees and grassland areas. With cliff edges and steep gradients aplenty the course designers used the best shots from their European 5 Nations layout and made each shot tougher with bigger angles and smaller target faces. A real challenge.

Linda Lainchbury put in a stunning performance early on Saturday. While everyone else was dropping points Linda held the lead until her 14th target when she was finally overhauled by Ivana Buden. An unfortunate miss on her 18th target dropped her further down the leaderboard but she recovered and ended the day only 4 points behind Ivana (455), Ulrike Wiese (453) and Inge Enthoven (452). With Hope Greenwood (451) equalling Linda's score there are at least five ladies with a realistic chance for victory on Sunday.

Once the gents class leaderboard settled it was Duncan Busby at the top with a comfortable lead over a whole host of different names. Initially Julien Lallemant and Geraint Thomas were challenging with career best performances but as the day wore on they were overtaken by Stephan Hansen, Domagoj Buden and Mike Schloesser. The day ended with the top 10 covered by just 8 points.

Sunday's action lived up to the promise and delivered exciting battles in both classes.

The ladies battle was a three way fight between Ivana Buden, Inge Enthoven and Hope Greenwood who spent the day in a different group on the other side of the course. By the third target Hope and Ivana were tied for the lead with Inge just one point back whilst the other contenders faded throughout the day. The three ladies were never separated by more than 2 points over the first part of the day. On target 17 Inge took a one point lead over Ivana and maintained that gap to the end. Hope came in third and took home the Beiter Accuracy Award for the most X's in the ladies class.

Duncan Busby had a tough day ahead of him. He had the current world number one and number two ranked archers (WA) just behind him. and they were all keen to score their first Pro Archery Series victory.

By target 7 Duncan's 2 point lead have been overcome and both Stephan Hansen and Mike Schloesser were all on a three way tie for first place. Stephan took over the lead and held a small gap to Duncan until the end. It was on the final target, an 80yd shot on a 50cm face, that Duncan slipped to third place behind Mike Schloesser. Stephan also took home the Beiter Accuracy Award for the most X's and also takes the lead in the 2016 Bohning Pro Archery Rankings so he is number one with us too, for at least seven weeks until the Alternative Welsh Masters on 3/4 September.

    2016 Cartel Classic

    After the searing 33 degree heat of Friday's practice day, Saturday began with persistant rain and much cooler temperaturers. The extreme SuSC Mullenborn course is tough in the dry. In the wet it would be a very long day for all of the competitors.

    Gladys Willems took control of the ladies class from the third target and gradually extended her lead throughout day one over both Ulrike Wiese and Ivana Buden. She ended the day with a very comfortable 8 point gap over Ivana who herself enjoyed a 3 point lead over Kristina Heigenhauser as Ulrike faded.

    The gents class was incredibly close with the lead swapping many times between several competitors. All eyes were on World Number 1 Ranked archer and recently crowned European Target Champion Stephan Hansen and he did not disappoint.

    However, it was local hero Andre Grawinkel who took an early lead before dropping back behind Chris White and Stephan Hansen. Chris led the field for much of the day but he too could not hold back Stephan and a resurgent Andre. By the end of the day Andre and Stephan had tied for the lead with Chris 3 points further back.

    Jens Asbach finished in a best ever 4th place but sadly announced his withdrawal from the 2016 Cartel Classic event after suffering a knee injury. We wish Jens a speedy recovery. His departure promotes Dejan Sitar into Sunday's top group.

    Sunday began a whole lot brighter and sunnier but with the ground still sodden after Saturday the conditions were still going to be tough.

    Ivana Buden was on a mission to claw back the 8 point gap over Gladys and initially made up ground as Gladys dropped a number of points early on. However the gap stabilized at 2-3 points for much of the rest of the day meaning that Gladys held on to win her fourth Pro Archery Series event.

    Kristina Heigenhauser finished in third place but outscored Gladys on X count meaning that she won the Beiter Accuracy Award of 500 EURO and the Dauchingen Devil in the ladies class.

    In the gents class it was all about Chris White and Andre Grawinkel. Joint overnight leader Stephan Hansen dropped back to third early on and Chris quickly made gains on Andre and with just four targets remaining they were tied for the lead. It was on one of our filmed targets, an uphill 65yd at the far end of the course that Chris dropped 2 points to Andre and he couldn't claw that back by the final target meaning that Andre won his first Pro Archery Series event.

    In the gents class the Beiter Accuracy Award went to Mike Schloesser who scored 3 more x's than Andre to take home the extra 500 EURO and the Dauchingen Devil.

    Congratulations to everyone on completing one of the toughest Cartel Classic events for many years.

    Next event: 2016 Doinker Masters - Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg - 16/17 July.


    Previous Event 2016 Fort van Lier

    2016 Fort van Lier

    The 2016 Fort van Lier event saw a tremendous battle in the ladies class between Jamie Van Natta (USA), Gladys Willems (BEL) and Ivana Buden (CRO). After Day 1 Jamie and Gladys were tied for the lead on 462 with Ivana just one point adrift with 461. On Day 2 Jamie increased her lead as Gladys and Ivana slipped back initially. Soon, Ivana began to claw back with a supreme performance to first surpass the American legend on the Beiter X count and then on the final target to tie for the overall lead setting up a nail biting shoot off. With rain clouds looming overhead it was Ivana who outscored Jamie in the three arrow head to head and take a memorable victory as well as tie with Liam Grimwood for the most podiums scored in Pro Archery Series history.

    The gents class was headed by Jesse Broadwater (USA) with a commanding victory. He missed out on the Belgian event in recent years due to clashing commitments and he had been desperate to return. Jesse certainly enjoys the unique and challenging Belgian venue. In second place was Renaud Domanski (BEL) with his best ever finish in what is likely to be his final archery event - at least for the foreseeable future - as he concentrates on the next stage of his life. He will certainly be missed and we hope he decides to return in the future as he possesses an incredible talent. In joint third place was Dejan Sitar (SLO) and Mike Schloesser (NED) who both overcame Stephan Hansen (DEN) and many others following closely behind.

    We have over 4 hours of video programming available online for you to watch free of charge, plus scoreboard, scorecards and competitor profiles.

    Next event: 2016 Cartel Classic - Mullenborn, Germany 25/26 June.
