2018.08.01.99.99 LGCT London CSI 5 GP Week Preview Denis Lynch & All Star LGCT SG.jpg

Three five-star level events highlight another great week of showjumping as the summer, the perfect season for our noble sport winds down in Europe and in the North America.

Ben Maher (GBR) is back on mission as he saw his margin of lead decrease last weekend after missing the grand prix qualifier and consequently the opportunity to score precious points in the grand prix that would count for the overall season standings.

As a result, current number one Longines-FEI-ranked rider and defending 2017 LGCT Champion of Champions, Harrie Smolders (NED) is breathind down his neck, joined by Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) and Alberto Zorzi (ITA), so it promises to be a thriller. Last year’s grand prix winner, Scott Brash (GBR) seeks to join them at the top of the leaderboard of the season standings.

The other major event is the colorful and majestic Jumping International de Dinard CSI 5*, where there roses and rosés will be abundant. There’s still much more for you to follow.
