I went to Monte Carlo for the 10th edition of the Longines Global Champions Tour Monaco.
Longines Global Champions Tour is the most exclusive international showjumping circuit, and in Monaco was helded into the spectacular Port Hercule with yatch, Monegasque Royal Palace, casino and sin city in the background.
The Swiss watchmaker brand Longines, was once again Main Sponsor and Official Timekeeper of the event, due to the sponsorship contract signed with FEI, the International Equestrian Federation.
On Friday 1st July I followed the CSI5* competitions where in the Trophée le Casino Monte-Carlo (1.50 with jump-off designed by Italian Chef de Piste Uliano Vezzani) won Simone Delestre on Hermes Ryan (0/0 32.64′), before the Luxembourg rider Victor Bettendorf on Astuce de la Roque (0/0 33.31′), and the third place went to the Belgian rider Gilles Thomas on Jetric van Beek Z (0/0 33.62′). Here the complete ranking.
I was wearing a Longines Conquest watch, with diamonds and mother of pearls.
