Novak Diokovic ieri sera al Casinò di Sanremo

diokovic_novak_al_casino_sanremo_21ott2111SANREMO (IM). Reduce dai successi degli  Us Open 2011 che lo hanno consacrato  il sesto giocatore dell'Era Open ad aver vinto tre tornei del Grande Slam in un anno e dalla faticosa prova in coppa Davis il tennista Novak Djokovic ieri sera si è concesso una piacevole serata nel Casinò di Sanremo.

Il n. 1 del ranking ATP che sta trascorrendo un periodo di riposo a Montecarlo  ha seguito con il coach ed il fratello un caro amico, innamorato di Sanremo e del suo Casinò ed ha cenato con loro nel ristorante Biribissi.

E’arrivato intorno alle 21.00 ed è  stato accolto dal calore di molti pokeristi presenti  per l’European Poker Tour.

Novak ha detto di conoscere bene Sanremo per aver partecipato, poco più che diciottenne, nel 2005 al SanremoTennis Cup - Memorial Tessitore, vincendo nettamente, una vittoria ben augurale  In quell’occasione aveva potuto già ammirare la città ma non era ancora entrato nella casa da gioco, che ieri sera  ha particolarmente apprezzato. Ha visitato tutte le sale da gioco e si è soffermato tra i tavoli dei pokeristi impegnati nell’Ept.

Dopo alcune ore ha lasciato il Casinò per ritornare in Costa Azzurra ringraziando per l’accoglienza avuta e per la bella serata trascorsa.

Note biografiche.

Novak Đoković è nato a Belgrado il 22 maggio 1987, primogenito di tre figli. I suoi genitori, Srdjan e Dijana, sono proprietari di un ristorante sul monte Kopaonik.

Đoković iniziò a giocare a tennis a quattro anni. Il padre, essendo stato uno sciatore professionista, oltre che un buon calciatore, avrebbe voluto che il figlio intraprendesse la carriera calcistica o sciistica, ma di fronte ai risultati tennistici di Novak, ben presto cambiò idea. A 12 anni, infatti, Đoković si iscrisse all'accademia di Nikola Pilić a Monaco, dove intraprese un percorso di pratica biennale, prima di tornare in patria.

Il suo attuale allenatore è Marian Vajda.

Il 1º luglio 2011 Novak, battendo Jo-Wilfried Tsonga e raggiungendo la finale del Wimbledon, ha guadagnato il primo posto del ranking ATP, posizione ufficializzata al termine del torneo, peraltro vinto. Per molti critici di questo sport Novak Djokovic è uno dei giocatori più forti dell'era Open ed è l'unico ad aver vinto 5 master 1000 di fila in un anno, in più ha vinto 3 Slam in un anno. Djokovic nel 2011 ha vinto 64 partite su 67. Djokovic è il terzo giocatore ad avere superato i 10 milioni di dollari in un anno ed è il primo ad avere raggiunto 10.671.388 milioni di dollari superando il record di Nadal (10.170.562 mlioni di dollari nel 2010). Djokovic ha giocato la migliore stagione nell'era Open.

Novak, di madrelingua serba, parla correntemente inglese, tedesco e italiano, quest'ultima lingua appresa durante il periodo in cui si allenò in Liguria con Riccardo Piatti.

È apparso nel video di Martin Solveig Hello, girato nel 2010 sul campo centrale del tennis di Parigi del Roland Garros.

Oltre 40 iscritti per il Grimaldi

vela_trophee_grimaldiSANREMO (IM). Seconda edizione per il Trophèe Grimaldi, che si conferma una regata di livello, con importanti partecipanti, che poi, tra poche settimane, nella maggior parte dei casi, prenderanno parte al West Liguria Trofeo Grand Hotel del Mare.

Sono oltre quaranta gli iscritti che affronteranno la partenza della prova Sanremo – Monaco, prevista per sabato mattina alle 10.55; ma la giornata per gli armatori inizierà già alle 9,30 quando si ritroveranno allo Yacht Club Sanremo per il briefing loro dedicato.

Dopo l’arrivo, alle 18,30, allo Yacht Club Monaco, tutti gli equipaggi saranno accolti con un cocktail, che sarà occasione per premiare i monotipi, ovvero la classe J24, ben rappresentata al Grimaldi.

Domenica mattina la flotta, sempre alle 10.55, riprenderà il mare da Monaco, per fare rotta su Sanremo, dove si svolgerà la premiazione della regata.

Lo spirito del Trophèe Grimaldi è fortemente legato al glamour, coniugando la disciplina della vela e le bellezze della riviera, che, sebbene sia geograficamente divisa tra riviera dei fiori e costa azzurra, è un tutt’uno di mare e costa frastagliata, che incanta da sempre milioni di marinai e turisti.

 

 

Clinic per gli Optimist allo Yacht Club Sanremo

vela_zonale_optimist_2010_sanremoSANREMO (IM). Inizia domani il “Clinic Optimist Liguria Autunno Inverno 2011”, organizzato dallo Yacht Club Sanremo; si tratta di una serie di appuntamenti organizzati per migliorare le tecniche e tattiche di regata, riservati ai velisti più giovani.

Seguiti dagli allenatori Alessio Baccini e Davide Ortelli, gli allenamenti si svolgeranno dal 22 ottobre al 18 dicembre, sia a Sanremo, che, grazie alla collaborazione dei rispettivi circoli nautici, anche ad Andora e Diano Marina.

Dopo il primo week end, i Clinic proseguiranno il 29 ottobre ad Andora, con la partecipazione anche dell’allenatore Agostino Amoretti, il 19 e 20 dicembre a Sanremo e il 17 e 18 dicembre a Diano Marina, data in cui sarà presente anche l’allenatore Giorgio Elena.

I partecipanti ai Clinic hanno tra gli 8 e i 12 anni e provengono non solo dallo Yacht Club Sanremo, ma anche da altri circoli, sia liguri che internazionali.

Ad ogni appuntamento parteciperanno tra i trenta e i cinquanta ragazzi.

Il programma prevede l’appuntamento coi ragazzi alle 14.30 del sabato e lezioni sia pratiche che teoriche siano alle 18,00; la domenica mattina invece l’appuntamento è per le ore 10, - il 22 ottobre peraltro ci sarà una lezione su “L’alimentazione del Velista” a cura del medico nutrizionista Stefania Orlando - per terminare alle 17.00.

489 iscritti alla Notte degli Assi al Casinò di Sanremo

casino_sanremo_741SANREMO (IM). Aspettando l’European Poker Tour stagione 8 che arriverà a Sanremo tra pochi giorni il Casinò ospita la “Notte degli Assi” una tre giorni che ha richiamato l’attenzione di ben  489 pokeristi provenienti da tutta Italia.

Ancora una volta la casa da gioco matuziana ha saputo inserirsi nelle nuove proposte di gioco che arrivano dal mondo del Poker, creando appuntamenti imperdibili per i più bei nomi del hold’em internazionale e nazionale.

“La Notte degli Assi”, giunta alla nona edizione, per la prima volta è stata organizzata da PaganoEvents  in collaborazione con PokerStars.it, prevede un buy-in di €550 e 30.000 chips iniziali. Tutti gli otto finalisti del torneo, inoltre, oltre ai premi in palio, riceveranno l’iscrizione gratuita ad un Mini IPT a loro scelta.

Domani 18 ottobre  verrà proclamato il vincitore de “La notte degli Assi” quindi il 19 ottobre inizierà la due giorni riservata ai satelliti dell’Ept. Il torneo internazionale entrerà nel vivo il 21 ottobre  sponsorizzato da PokerStars.it e organizzato da PaganoEvents, per conto di Pokerstars. Con un buy-in di €4.900 e 30.000 chips iniziali, rappresenta una sfida accattivante per centinaia di giocatori italiani e stranieri a Sanremo per contendersi picca e montepremi finale.

Il 27 ottobre verrà proclamato il vincitore al Final table € 4600 +€ 300.

Ieri molti dei pokeristi  hanno guardato con interesse al super jackpot legato alle slot Star Wars che sta raggiungendo € 600.000 , un nuovo record per la casa da gioco. Il montepremi che resiste ormai da due anni e mezzo  è l’oggetto del desiderio per molti appassionati.

Potrebbe essere proprio questo scorcio di ottobre dedicato al poker il momento migliore per sbaragliare il ricchissimo montepremi.

Intanto le sale slot stanno premiando ancora una volta i tanti appassionati. Nella settimana che si è appena conclusa sono stati consegnati quattro jackpot del valore superiore ai diecimila euro ad altrettanti vacanzieri per complessivi € 63.426.

Il primo premio di € 20.385 è stato aggiudicato a un cliente toscano residente in provincia di Arezzo, un arzillo nonno di 84 anni, arrivato in Riviera con la famiglia. Nel ricevere la vincita ha raccontato di avere sempre frequentato i casinò ma con “moderazione”. Di essersi sempre divertito, di non aver mai perso molto  e di essere stato sempre un po’ fortunato.

Il secondo jackpot è stato vinto da una giocatrice di 40 anni francese. Ha giocato alla slot n.1534 e si è vista consegnare € 16.570. Visibilmente soddisfatta ha ritirato la vincita in compagnia di un’amica ed ha continuato la serata in un locale sanremese. Una cinquantenne torinese, che spesso trascorre qualche giorno in riviera  ha ottenuto alla slot 10091 touch screen il Jackpot del valore di € 12.141.

La serie fortunata si è conclusa sabato con una scala reale di denari vinta da una signora veronese . Ha concluso le sue vacanze con un premio del valore € 14.330. “Quando ho visto la sequenza - ha dichiarato - quasi non ci credevo. Non ho mai vinto tanto. E’ una bella cifra ancor più gradita perché mi serve per aiutare mia figlia ad arredare la casa nuova.”

Compiègne : Pierre Subileau s’impose dans le Grand National

le 08/10/2011
L'Ecurie Kineton-Sprenger remporte la dernière étape et le circuit - photo: EM

Le Grand National 2011 a pris fin samedi après-midi à Compiègne pour l’ultime étape de la saison en dressage. Après le complet à Jardy et le saut d’obstacles à Paris, les cavaliers de dressage en ont à leur tour terminé avec le Grand National qui aura vu pour sa dernière étape, la victoire de l’Ecurie Kineton-Sprenger, représentée par Pierre Subileau en selle sur sa jument Talitie.

 
Alors qu’avant le début du Grand Prix, support du Grand National, l’Ecurie Meyer Selles, représentée par Gilles et Grégoire Siauve, tenait le leadership du Grand National, les choses ont rapidement basculé en faveur de l’Ecurie Kineton-Sprenger avec la très belle reprise du couple Pierre Subileau et Talitie, qui obtient la moyenne de 68,851%, lui permettant de conserver la tête de l’épreuve jusqu’à la fin et de signer sa première victoire sur le circuit cette année. « Talitie a débuté en Grand Prix à Jardy sur la première étape et remporte ici la dernière donc je suis très satisfait », souligne Pierre Subileau qui montait il y a un mois sur la troisième marche du podium des Masters Pro. Avec son puissant Paradieszauber, Catherine Henriquet permet à son Ecurie Derby Assurance-Equitechnic de monter sur la deuxième marche avec une moyenne de 66,630%. Le couple remportait d’ailleurs la veille l’Inter II avec une note de plus de 68%. Avant dernière à entrer en piste, Muriel Leonardi, gagnante de l’étape du Mans, a prouvé une fois de plus la bonne évolution de sa jument Walentina pourtant un peu fatigée, en sortant du carré avec une moyenne générale de 64,660% ce qui lui vaudra la quatrième place du Grand Prix et la troisième du Grand National pour son Ecurie Team de Breteuil. C’est Marina Caplain Saint André qui prend la troisième place de l’épreuve avec Romeo grâce à la bonne moyenne de 66,553%. Cependant, Pierre Subileau et Marina Caplain Saint André étant partenaires d’Ecurie pour le Grand National, seul le meilleur résultat est comptabilisé pour le classement définitif.
Dans la suite du classement, deux Ecuries se trouvent classées ex-æquo, l’Ecurie DP Nutrition-Ecolit avec Dominique D Esme et Roi de Cœur et l’Ecurie Team Normandy-Cavalassur représentée par Jean-Philippe Siat qui courait là son dernier Grand Prix avec son fidèle Greystoke.  Si Gilles Siauve et Windsor van t Dashageveld n’ont pas maintenu la tête de l’édition 2011, le cavalier du nord remporte malgré tout le challenge des propriétaires « Intercontinental Richards & Zeger » et sa groom Cindy Waguet remporte le challenge des grooms « Equi-well.com ».

 
Le circuit s’arrête donc sur une nouvelle victoire d’une écurie Kineton mais cette fois Sprenger et non plus Passier comme lors des trois dernières éditions. La cinquième saison du Grand National sera tout particulièrement attendue en dressage puisque deux nouvelles étapes viendront s’ajouter au calendrier tout comme une épreuve réservée aux chevaux de sept ans ainsi qu’un projet de valorisation des reprises libres en musique.
Prochain rendez-vous pour les cavaliers français, le CDI 3* de Biarritz dans deux semaines.

Profile

Ryan Giggs is one of very few players to have spent their entire career at the same club, he is the most decorated player in the history of Manchester United FC with more than 800 appearances for the club, Welsh winger Ryan Giggs's main strengths are his speed and his ability to manipulate the ball while running at full pace. Giggs is Manchester United FC's longest-serving current player, having made his first appearance for the club during the 1990-91 season and been a regular player since the 1991-92 season. He has played the highest number of competitive games for the club (more than legendary Bobby Charlton), and he holds the club record of team trophies won by a player. As well as being a fine dribbler, Giggs is also a regular goal scorer: it is very famous a  magnificent solo score to win the 1999 FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal FC, from which point the club went on to secure an unprecedented treble of league, cup and UEFA Champions League, later adding the Intercontinental Cup. He has claimed 12 English titles (a record) and he is the only player to win the Professional Footballers Association Young Player of the Year award on two occasions in a row (1992 and 1993). He has played 814 matches for Manchester United FC, more than anyone else. As Welsh international Giggs has been a regular in his side since becoming the youngest player to represent his country aged 17 years and 321 days against Germany in 1991, although he has never played in a final tournament. With his country's shirt, the Welsh Wizard has played 64 games scoring 12 goals, before the announcement of his retirement from international football on 30 May 2007.

Gli arcieri di San Bartolomeo ancora una volta Campioni Italiani

arcieri_san_bartolomeo_ai_italiani_finale_ligure_ott2011_capalbo_francescaSAN BARTOLOMEO AL MARE (IM). Lo scorso fine settimana a Finale Ligure (SV) si è svolta la quinta edizione del Campionato Italiano Specialità 3d.  4 gli arcieri di San Bartolomeo presenti alla gara.

Ben Fekih Ali Saber, Sega Jacopo nella divisione arco nudo under 20 maschile, Francesca Capalbo nella divisione arco nudo under 20 femminile, e Nicolò Bruna arco istintivo maschile under 20. “Grandissima soddisfazione dello staff tecnico” - commenta Giuseppe Capalbo responsabile tecnico della associazione insieme a Maria Elena Ardoino.

La giornata di sabato ha visto la gara di qualifica per stabile i primi 8 classificati per le griglie degli quarti di finale. Centrano questa fase finale Nicolò’ Bruna (arco istintivo) e Francesca Capalbo (arco nudo). Un vero peccato per il veterano Ben Fekih Ali Saber vincitore di tante medaglie in vari campionati e Jacopo Sega che per pochi punti rimane fuori.

Nei quarti di finale disputati domenica sulla spiaggia di Finale Ligure Francesca Capalbo accede subito alla semifinale mentre Nicolò Bruna rimane fuori dalla semifinale per la medaglia d’oro: alla freccia di spareggio la sua era più distante dal centro. Si qualifica per al finale del bronzo che perde per solo pochi punti. Nella sua semifinale batte per due punti la prima nella raking list nazionale ed accede alla finale per l’oro. Nella finale vince alla ultima sagoma e diventa la nuova campionessa italiana specialità 3 d arco nudo under 20.

Nella gara indoor di asti 18 metri nella  divisione arco olimpico  Eleonora Martino vince la medaglia di bronzo della specialità.

Master Pro : Alexis Gautier et Helios de la Cour, épisode II

le 02/10/2011
Alexis Gautier & Helios de la Cour II (Photo M-A Thierry)

En 2010, Alexis Gautier remportait le championnat de France Pro Elite avec Helios de la Cour II. Un an plus tard, le couple normand a de nouveau été sacré sur le Grand Parquet de Fontainebleau. Deuxièmes à l'issue de la chasse samedi, il ont ensuite confirmé dimanche lors des deux manches constituant la finale du championnat.

 

Pourtant, rien n'était fait chez les Pro Elite. Preuve en est, les douze points de Patrice Delaveau avec Ornella Mail, les huit points de Philippe Rozier avec Randgraaf ou encore de Michel Hecart avec Ninon des Loulous lors de la première manche de la finale. Ils ne seront finalement que six à réaliser un sans-faute lors de ce parcours :  Eric Dewulf avec Norton d'Eole, Aymeric Azzolino avec Looping d'Elle, Clement Boulanger avec Top Gun du Grand Moustier, Eugenie Angot avec Old Chap Tame, Jerome Hurel avec Ohm de Ponthual et Alexis Gautier avec Helios de la Cour. Mais, il restait encore une manche pour départager l'ensemble des concurrents.

 

Après une ultime reconnaissance, vingt-six couples se sont alors élancés dans la deuxième manche de la finale. Objectif : réaliser le sans-faute pour accrocher un podium national. Pari réussi pour Roger-Yves Bost qui, en bouclant un parcours sans pénalité, monte sur la troisième marche du podium avec Nifrane de Kreisker. La jument vivait là son tout premier championnat, une bonne expérience avant d'attaquer les Coupes du monde d'Oslo et Helsinki d'ici quinze jours. Avec un quart point de temps dépassé, Eugénie Angot et Old Chap Tame s'offrent une belle médaille d'argent. "J'étais pas contente du parcours d'hier (samedi), j'étais déçue de cette faute sur le dernier que je n'aurais pas du faire. Du coup, on s'est un peu vengé aujourd'hui !", commente la cavalière très satisfaite de son cheval de neuf ans dont le prochain rendez-vous est fixé lors du CSI 3* de Caen, en indoor.

 

Le public aura vibré jusqu'au bout de l'épreuve, jusqu'au parcours du couple champion de France en titre. Alexis Gautier sort le grand jeu avec un parcours sans-faute mais pénalisé d'un demi point de temps dépassé. Il s'offre ainsi le doublé sous les applaudissements d'un public venu nombreux, un doublé historique qu'aucun cavalier n'avait parvenu à réaliser avec la même monture. "C'est extraordinaire ! Le cheval vieillit, mais il s'améliore de jours en jour. C'est un cheval qui a une niaque terrible. Dès qu'il arrive sur un terrain de concours, c'est pour faire un sans-faute !", a commenté le cavalier comblé par cette victoire. "On était un peu inquiet car il s'était fait une petite lésion tendineuse il y a quinze jours, donc on a vraiment allégé le travail au maximum. On était aussi un peu inquiet avec le temps qui était très chaud, on avait peur que physiquement, il soit un peu court, mais quand il est sur un terrain, il sort tout !", conclut-t-il.

 


Le classement final :

1 ALEXIS GAUTIER & HELIOS DE LA COUR II     2.23/0/0.50       2.73        
2 EUGENIE ANGOT & OLD CHAP TAME            4.98/0/0.25       5.23        
3 ROGER YVES BOST & NIFRANE DE KREISKER      2.87/4/0       6.87        
4 JEROME HUREL & OHM DE PONTHUAL          3,19/0   4.25       7.44

8 JULIEN GONIN & LUCIFER PLATIERE         5.04/4/4      13.04

10 OLIVIER GUILLON  & LORD DE THEIZE          6.38/4/4.5   14.88                                                                                                   

 
A Fontainebleau, Marie-Anaïs Thierry.

GRANDE PILOTE

A regarder jusqu'au bout, super 
  
 
 
Il s'agit d'une vidéo d'un pilote acrobate qui, dans la vraie vie, est un pilote de Delta Airlines.
Son spectacle aérien est de prétendre qu'il est un simple spectateur ivre qui se précipite dans les tribunes et saute dans un Piper Cub et décolle sans savoir piloter un avion.
Le Piper Cub est en fait spécifiquement construit pour résister à une énorme quantité de stress et est équipé d'un moteur très puissant.
Ce type d'acrobaties sont en fait très dangereuses, ceci en raison de la faible altitude à laquelle le pilote les effectue.
De toute évidence, ce pilote possède des compétences incroyables.
Regardez bien l'atterrissage à la fin - absolument génial!

Canottieri Sanremo A.S.D. 

 

 

 

 

 

Week-end impegnativo per la Canottieri Sanremo che ha visto la Canoa impegnata nelle gare interne del Campionato Ligure e 1° Trofeo Arnaldo Albarelli, e il canottaggio in trasferta sul lago di Mergozzo.

 

canottieri-logo2008.jpg

 

           I canoisti Sanremesi si sono contraddistinti sulle acque amiche conquistando il secondo posto societario dietro alla Canottieri Sabazia di Savona nelle gare del Campionato Ligure. Per quanto riguarda il 1° Trofeo in ricordo di Arnaldo Albarelli i nostri ragazzi si sono impegnati al massimo vincendo la classifica finale davanti alla Canottieri Sabazia, intenzionati fino all’ultimo a tenersi stretto il Trofeo e il ricordo del buon Arnaldo.

 

            Undici equipaggi della Canottieri Sanremo si sono fregiati del titolo di Campioni Liguri: il K4 Ragazzi M(Bellanova-Ratti-Griseri-Perego), il K4 Junior F (Revelli-Borro-Embriaco-Parodi), il K4 Senior F (Albarelli-Albarelli-Embriaco-Tosi), il K2 Ragazzi F (Borro-Parodi), il K2 Junior M (Capello-Dimarcoberardino), il K2 Master A F (Albarelli-Tosi), il K2 Master A M (De Salvo-Albarelli), il K1 Ragazzi F (Revelli), il K1 Junior M (Capello), il K1 Senior F (Embriaco) e il K1 Master A M (Albarelli). A questi risultati si aggiungono altre 9 medaglie tra argento e bronzo. I risultati dei più piccoli, categorie Allievi e Cadetti, hanno portato invece la nostra società alla vittoria del Trofeo Arnaldo Albarelli, con quasi tutti gli atleti a medaglia.          

 

            I canottieri in trasferta hanno onorato l’impegno e sulle acque del Lago di Mergozzo, i 3 equipaggi iscritti hanno ottenuto ottimi risultati. Nello specifico i risultati dei nostri atleti:

 

·         Simone Cardone e Luca Baratta, 2senza Ragazzi: 1° posto

·         Marco Baratta, Singolo Ragazzi: 4° posto

·         Simone Cardone – Baratta Luca, Doppio Cadetti: 2° posto

 

Fine settimana impegnativo per la Società, ma ricco di soddisfazioni, di ricordi e qualche lacrima, per Arnaldo che da poco ci ha lasciato proprio da uno di quei pontili che domenica hanno fatto da parterre a tanti ragazzi , e per Mirko, il 21enne apneista, conosciuto nell’ambiente e atleta della Lega Navale, che ha partecipato alle gare con il lutto al braccio e lo ha ricordato con le parole del suo allenatore Enrico.

I commenti dei partecipanti al 53°Rallye di Sanremo

rallye_di_sanremo_2011SANREMO.  Mentre gli Organizzatori del 53° Rallye Sanremo mettono a punto gli ultimi dettagli della gara, abbiamo raccolto alcuni commenti dei principali protagonisti prima dell’inizio i questa storica gara nell’entroterra del ponente ligure.

Piloti partecipanti alla stagione 2011 dell’Intercontinental Rally Challenge. Programma gara: Partenza da Sanremo alle ore 13.20 di Venerdì 23 Settembre e arrivo finale Sabato 24 Settembre alle ore 18.23. La terzultima gara dell’I.R.C. prevede 13 Prove speciali, 225,77 km cronometrati e un percorso totale di 524,10 km.

Giandomenico BASSO (Proton Satria Neo S2000). “Mi preparo per ogni gara con il massimo impegno, deciso a ottenere il meglio possibile e lo farò a maggior ragione a Sanremo, la gara italiana. Non è stata una stagione facile per me e per il team, che ha lavorato veramente tantissimo. In questo momento la squadra ha assoluto bisogno di mostrare che la Satria è quantomeno affidabile, e allora dovrò stare bene attento a non commettere nessunissimo errore e terminare la gara”.

Stefano Albertini (Meteco Corse Renault Clio R3c). “Il Rallye di Sanremo, insieme alla mia gara di casa il 1000 Miglia, sono in assoluto le mie gare preferite. Poter nuovamente correre a Sanremo, sulle strade che hanno contribuito a creare i grandi Campioni di questa specialità è veramente fantastico. La “Ronde” che si corre in notturna è molto impegnativa e credo che parte della gara si deciderà proprio lì, comunque a me piace molto. E’ la quarta volta che partecipo a questa gara e non vedo l’ora di iniziare di nuovo”

Pierre Campana (Munaretto Peugeot 207 S2000). “Sono contento di poter partecipare al Sanremo, è una fantastica gara, con un grande carattere e che propone grandi sfide, che io ricordo bene dalla mia ultima volta qui, quando ho vinto il 2 Ruote Motrici. Al Tour de Corse siamo andati abbastanza bene, per cui credo che sia possibile entrare tra I primi cinque assoluti al Sanremo”.

Harry Hunt (Citroën DS3 R3 – IRC 2WD Cup). “Non vedo l’ora di cominciare. Questa sarà la mia terza partecipazione a questa gara ed inoltre è una delle mie gare favorite. Penso che ha tutti piaccia: la zona assistenza, le prove speciali, la lunga prova in notturna, l’atmosfera che si respira. Dura 23 ore e non è così irreggimentata come altre gare. Le strade sono fantastiche, per la speciale in notturna lo scorso anno avevamo 77 pagine di note! Sarà una competizione dura, ma io sono deciso a spingere al massimo e cercare di arrivare al podio”.

Andreas Mikkelsen (ŠKODA UK Motorsport Fabia S2000). “Sanremo è una gara classica con una notevole storia. Ci sono delle strade fantastiche intorno a Sanremo e soprattutto non vedo l’ora di disputare la speciale lunga in notturna. A me piace guidare di notte e quella prova credo proprio che segnerà le sorti della gara. Sarà una bella sfida e io credo di avere delle buone possibilità”.

Thierry Neuville (Team Peugeot Belgium-Luxembourg 207 S2000). “E’ una gara piuttosto difficile, con strade a volte molto strette, sufficienti a mala pena per una vettura. Questo significa che le note devono essere estremamente precise, specialmente per la lunga prova in notturna, che oltretutto ha una bellissima atmosfera. La pioggia potrebbe essere un fattore determinante. Lo scorso anno quando ha piovuto abbiamo visto che i piloti locali erano più preparati e hanno fatto la giusta scelta di pneumatici. Comunque conosco le strade, so di poter essere competitivo e di poter essere in lizza per il podio”.

Jan Kopecký (Skoda Motorsport Skoda Fabia S2000). “Il Sanremo è una bella sfida per me e il mio navigatore Petr. Non siamo stati fortunati in questa gara lo scorso anno. Le strade sono bellissime, più tecniche e lente della scorsa gara in Ungheria, è difficile preparare delle note precise. Con Petr faremo del nostro meglio per cercare di mantenere la nostra posizione nel campionato, in vista della finale.”

Freddy Loix (BFO Skoda R.T. Skoda Fabia S2000). “Dopo la veloce gara in Ungheria sono contento di trovare nuovamente una gara tecnica come il Sanremo. Devo cercare di ottenere un buon risultato qui, dove il coefficiente della gara è più alto, per rimanere tra i piloti in testa alla classifica IRC in vista delle prossime due ultime gare della stagione”.

Si ricorda che Mercoledì 21 settembre si darà inizio agli eventi collaterali della manifestazione organizzati in collaborazione del Comune di Sanremo. Il programma:

ore 15.30/18.00, piazza Borea d'Olmo --> esibizione kartistica per i bambini della città dai 7 agli 11 anni, con possibilità di guidare i mini go-kart messi a disposizione dal Karting Club Sanremo;

ore 21.00, piazza Bresca --> grande festa per gara con musica dal vivo!!

Le triomphe de Mariquita

 

 

CLASSICMCW11ap_54420-Andrea-Pisapia.jpg

Dans toute célébration, il y les grandes années, celles où tout est réuni pour rester dans les mémoires. Ce sera le cas de cette 10e édition de la Monaco Classic Week – La Belle Classe. Unique en son genre et organisée en collaboration avec Hublot, Chronométreur officiel, du Credit Suisse et du constructeur italien Lancia, cette biennale réunit durant une semaine, dans un même port, les derniers témoins du yachting d’autrefois, petite et grande plaisance confondue.

Préservation de l’étiquette, sauvegarde de l’environnement, mise à l’honneur du patrimoine, c’est avec ce label, et bien au-delà de son cercle de membres, que le Y.C.M. fédère les armateurs, en leur offrant des confrontations amicales sur l’eau ainsi qu’une plate-forme de communication et d’échanges lors des soirées organisées dans la tradition du savoir-vivre monégasque.

Un plateau exceptionnel de près de 100 bateaux, avec les retrouvailles depuis près d’un siècle des quatre 15 M JI, servi par une météo de rêve qui a su mettre en valeur chacune des catégories présentes, des lauréats incontestables, des équipages et des armateurs témoignant de leur amour du patrimoine historique et maritime, sans oublier Jacques Perrin, Personnalité de la Mer plébiscitée par tous les participants.

 

 

Côté people, les voiliers avaient la cote : Robert Charlebois sur Emilia, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor embarqua sur Karenita, l’ancien voilier d’Errol Flynn, bientôt rejoint par Sir Robin Kox-Johnston, barreur exemplaire et président du Jury de la Monaco Classic Week. Alors que Marie Tabarly et Pierre Casiraghi étaient sur Tuiga, le navire amiral centenaire du Yacht Club de Monaco ; le violoniste Renaud Capuçon et Laurence Ferrari avaient choisi le motor-yacht R/S Eden.

 

La Monaco Classic Week sert de prélude comme une glorieuse vitrine du passé du yachting, au Monaco Yacht Show, où se retrouvent les innovations les plus audacieuses, images d’avenir. Cette double appartenance légitime Monaco comme la capitale mondiale du yachting, une des volontés de S.A.S. le Prince Souverain, président du Y.C.M., et qui a tenu à être très présent sur l’évènement, tout comme S.A.R. la Princesse Caroline, souhaitant la bienvenue aux membres du YCM sur son motor-yacht Pacha III.

 

 

 

Le temps fort de la semaine a été de voile pure, avec la réunion, pour une série de régates mémorables, des quatre 15 Mètre de Jauge Internationale, tous des plans Fife, lancés entre 1908 et 1912, survivants d’une classe de racers qui en compta seulement 20 entre 1907 et 1917. Le premier du quatuor, que l’on pourrait appeler le violon solo, véritable Stradivarius, est Tuiga, qu’Eric Tabarly considérait comme le plus beau yacht du monde. Sorti d’une restauration exemplaire en 1994, Tuiga a été rejoint ensuite sur le circuit par The Lady Anne, puis par Mariska, et enfin cette année par Hispania, sister-ship de Tuiga, lancé en 1909 en Espagne pour le roi Alphonse XIII et restauré par la volonté de Sa Majesté Juan Carlos, désireux de voir à nouveau les deux sister-ships régater comme à La Belle Epoque.

 

Hispania, propriété de la Real Fundacion Hispania a été confiée à la fondation Isla Ebusitana, basée à Cadiz, dont la marina de Puerto Sherry est l’un des partenaires principaux. « Notre fondation est engagée dans la restauration du patrimoine maritime espagnol et le développement de la voile classique au niveau mondial. Notre objectif est de créer une base  pour les yachts de tradition et d’organiser un rassemblement en juin prochain, tout en continuant à développer les liens déjà tissés avec Tuiga et le YCM, à travers des échanges d’équipiers et de savoir-faire organisationnel », a déclaré Pedro de Bores, Président de Puerto Sherry et vice-président de la fondation Isla Ebusitana.

 La confrontation entre ces quatre 15 Mètre a été remportée par Mariska, qui connut un destin hors du commun, avec 73 ans passés en Suède, où il fut emmené juste avant la Guerre de 14/18, et n’en sortit qu’aux mains d’un propriétaire hollandais. Transformé en yawl aurique, puis marconi, et pour finir en ketch, dont la voûte avait été raccourcie de 3 mètres, c’est le premier yacht de cette importance restauré en France, à la Ciotat, et mené par une femme, Laurence Ramès.

 

 

Le Prix « La Belle Classe Restauration » 2011 à Mariquita

Ce prix a pour vocation de préserver et de valoriser le patrimoine maritime ainsi que de pérenniser des métiers d’artisanat au savoir-faire unique et précieux. Présidé par Sir Robin Knox-Jonhston, le jury avait fort à faire, les belles restaurations, faites dans le bon esprit, étant nombreuses au sein d’un plateau qui regroupait 50 des plus beaux yachts du monde. A l’unanimité, son choix s’est porté sur Mariquita, le seul 19 Mètre JI encore navigant, cent ans tout juste, et aussi beau à terre que sur l’eau.

Reconnaissable entre tous au petit canot verni à clins renversé à l’arrière du mât, Mariquita fut lancé le 6 mai 1911 pour A.K.Stothert qui, trois ans auparavant avait pris livraison du 15 Mètre Mariska. En cent ans, il connut bien des avatars, de fameux racer à croiseur familial paisible, puis house-boat, promis à devenir chapelle itinérante, carcasse sur un parking, avant un passage rénovateur chez Fairlie Restorations, Southampton, où il retrouva sa splendeur. Pour sa restauration, ses armateurs ont poussé le souci du détail et de l’authenticité à alerter les réseaux d’antiquaires de marine, les chantiers, les brocanteurs des deux côtés de l’Atlantique pour retrouver des pièces d’époque, les faisant refaire à l’identique quand ce n’était pas possible.

Bateau privé basé dans le Golfe de Saint-Tropez, il est de tous les rassemblements, et reste un habitué des podiums : vendredi, il s’est permis de battre le 23 Mètre JI Cambria, un jeunot de 83 ans, et long de 41 mètres, alors qu’il en mesure 3 de moins, et remporte la série de régates en temps compensé, selon la jauge du Comité International de la Méditerranée.

C’est d’ailleurs à l’occasion de la Monaco Classic Week que le bureau exécutif du C.I.M. s’est réuni pour dresser un premier bilan de fin de saison.

Le concours des chefs : les femmes prennent le pouvoir

11 yachts, dont quatre ont pour chefs des femmes, étaient inscrits à cette compétition gastronomique créée en même temps que la première Monaco Classic Week.

Le 1er prix est allé à Mlle Bénédicte Cochard, jeune chef du MY Over The Rainbow, pour ses filets de rougets en croûte de cèpes, alors que Wayfarer a obtenu un prix particulier, décerné à l’unanimité par le jury, présidé par Alain Ducasse, pour la qualité de son accueil.

Il s’agissait cette année de préparer un plat de poisson de Méditerranée, les critères de sélection retenus étant la créativité et l’originalité, la finesse des saveurs, la présentation du plat et l’accord mets et Champagne Moët et Chandon, parrain de cette confrontation gastronomique.

 

 

Les canots : un monde à part !

L’idée géniale de la Monaco Classic Week est de réunir tout le patrimoine navigant : voilier, motor-yachts et canots automobiles, liés à toute l’histoire du yachting monégasque. Cette année, une flotte de 23 canots à moteur, dont une majorité de Chris Craft, aux côtés de Riva, des Pedrazzini, des Hacker’s Craft, des Dodge dont quelques raretés, ont su capter l’attention des promeneurs lors des différentes épreuves dont un inédit Poker Run organisé en collaboration avec la Société des Bains de Mer. Et quand ils se sont mis, samedi, à vrombir au milieu du plan de régate, animant le lent ballet des voiliers s’ébrouant dans une brise renaissante, les spectateurs massés sur la jetée n’ont pu retenir leurs applaudissements.

 Le prix de l’élégance : Istros à l’unanimité

Ce motor-yacht de 42 mètres a été construit en 1954 au chantier De Vries Lentsch pour une famille grecque qui le conserva 23 ans et en prit grand soin. C’est un bateau fastueux et confortable, construit à une époque où ne sacrifiait pas le luxe des lambris vernis, des cuivres, de l’inox et des ponts en teck à un quelconque souci de facilité d’entretien ! Un de ses capitaines l’avait très bien défini : « She is an elegant lady ». De plus, Istros est un bateau économique : ses deux moteurs diesel de 570 ch ne consomment que 140 litres à l’heure, tous systèmes en marche, à la vitesse de croisière de 12 nœuds, ce qui lui donne une autonomie de 3300 milles. On comprend que le jury l’ait couronné à l’unanimité, toutes catégories confondues.

 

 

1er Classic Lancia Torino to Monaco:

13 voitures historiques commémorent le centenaire du Rallye de Monte-Carlo

C’est sur une Lancia Aurelia que Louis Chiron, seul vainqueur monégasque de l’histoire, a remporté le Rallye de Monte Carlo, ce qui ne fit que renforcer les liens entre la Principauté et la marque italienne, créée en 1906. Les passionnés de motonautisme aiment les voitures, et les mordus d’automobiles classiques ne résistent pas à la musique particulière du moteur d’un canot plus que cinquantenaire. En fait, seule la carrosserie change : on sait qu’au début du XXe siècle, devant le nombre d’accidents sur la route, on obligea les constructeurs à essayer leurs monstres sur l’eau. Ce qui entraîna le succès de meetings motonautiques comme celui de Monaco. Lancia, partenaire de la Monaco Classic Week, a voulu rappeler aussi que la firme italienne est la plus titrée dans le rallye de Monte Carlo, en amenant ici des voitures tout à fait exceptionnelles, comme un certain proto signé Pinin Farina qui révolutionna en 1955 l’esthétique des carrosseries, ou le coupé du même designer ayant appartenu à Eric Clapton.

Hublot Classic Fusion : une série limitée

L’horloger suisse est le sponsor principal et le chronométreur officiel de la Monaco Classic Week depuis 2005, et à ce titre, le Yacht Club est le lieu privilégié de la présentation par son PDG Jean-Claude Biver, de nouveaux modèles d’exception. Comme le chronographe Classic Fusion, auquel le titane apporte sa résistance et sa légèreté, les compteurs argentés sur cadran bleu marine un chic incomparable, et le bracelet d’alligator cousu sur caoutchouc une familiarité sans danger avec l’eau de met. Attention, il en sera produit 250 exemplaires, pas un de plus !  

 

 

La Dynastie marseillaise des Roux, peintres de marine, s’expose à Monaco

Organisée du 10 au 25 septembre 2011 dans les salons du Yacht Club de Monaco, en collaboration avec la Galerie Stammegna et Associé, de Marseille, cette exposition réunit pour la première fois une trentaine d’œuvres originales de la dynastie Roux, accompagnées d’une maquette du Kersaint, navire de 1921. Inaugurée par SAS le Prince Albert II et SAR la Princesse Caroline, elle a mis en lumière cette famille de peintres de marine du 18e et du 19e siècle.

 

 

Jacques Perrin, Personnalité de la Mer 2011

Samedi soir, l’heure était au glamour au Musée Océanographique ! La journaliste Laurence Ferrari remettait à Jacques Perrin, acteur, réalisateur et producteur, le Prix de la personnalité de la Mer 2011. Emu, en escale au Yacht Club, il déclarait : « J’ose recevoir un prix alors que Robin est là…mais que les gens qui connaissent la mer me cooptent, et voient quelques vertus à mes films me touche beaucoup ». Comme le rappelait Bernard d’Alessandri, secrétaire général du YCM, « Ce Prix n’a pas été créé pour récompenser seulement des marins, mais ceux qui œuvrent pour la meilleure connaissance, donc la défense de la mer ».

La prochaine Monaco Classic Week – La Belle Classe se déroulera du 11 au 15 septembre 2013.

Florac : la France en or, des vitesses qui s’affolent !

le 10/09/2011

 

Florac n’échappe pas à la tendance mondiale. La course mythique, sur laquelle beaucoup pensaient que les records ne seront pas une nouvelle fois explosés, a vu la vitesse de l’an dernier pulvérisée, et sacre un couple habitué des podiums, Maria Alvarez Ponton et Nobby. Par équipe, la France est en or.

 
Avec un record en 2010 à 17,592 km/h sur l’ensemble du parcours de Sarah Chakil, on pensait avoir atteint un seuil. Et même si le tracé a évolué, c’est à une moyenne de 18,48 km/h que l’Emirati Ali Khalfan Al Jahouri a couru les 160 km de Florac, dans la catégorie Open. Ca passait ou ça cassait : c’est passé pour celui dont on dit de la monture qu'elle n'avait jamais vu un arbre avant d'arriver, quelques jours auparavant, à Florac, et qui a donné le ton dès la première étape en mettant, à 4h30 samedi matin, quelque quatre minutes, d’entrée, dans la vue de ses concurrents. Et précisément sur la favorite de l’épreuve, la championne d’Europe et du monde en titre, l’Espagnole Maria Alvarez Ponton, qui plutôt que de jouer la concurrence, a préféré se positionner en chef du peloton suiveur, avant de l’abandonner sur la dernière étape. Au départ de cette dernière étape justement, l’Espagnole, en selle sur son incroyable Nobby, affiche un « retard » de plus de vingt-deux minutes sur l’Emirati, qu’elle réduira finalement à moins de sept minutes, enregistrant une vitesse moyenne sur la phase 6 de 23,71 km/h, là où le futur gagnant, ne se sentant pas particulièrement menacé, a « levé le pied » et terminé à 17,99 km/h.

 
Derrière eux, arrive à la troisième place le cavalier du Bahreïn Jasim Mohammed AA Al Maadhadi, à 7 min 42 de la tête. Le Bahreïn était le sponsor principal de ce championnat d’Europe open, ouvert donc aux nations extra-européennes. Tout au long du parcours dans la montagne cévenole, les drapeaux et tentes du Bahreïn ouvraient les aires de contrôles vétérinaires.

 
Quatrième au scratch (tous classements confondus donc), l’Allemande Sabrina Arnold prend la deuxième place individuelle du championnat, devant, du moins l’a-t-on cru dans un premier temps, Grégoire Tilquin, qui sera éliminé pour boiterie sur le contrôle final. Un épisode qui n’est pas sans rappeler la mésaventure de Virginie Atger en 2009, qui n’a pas manqué  de le rappeler au micro et d’apporter son soutien à son compatriote, qui courait en individuel, alors que la Provençale courait pour l’équipe. Un Français en chasse un autre : c’est finalement Pierre Fleury, sixième au scratch, qui prend le bronze en individuel.

 
Du côté de l’équipe, les Français, menés par une Virginie Atger prête à tout (elle boucle la dernière étape sur une vitesse moyenne de 28,28 km/h !), termine en or : Virginie Atger est septième, Julien Goachet est neuvième, Sunny Demedy est onzième. La patience du public, venu très nombreux pour ce championnat, malgré des bouchons monstres, a donc été récompensée : deux podiums pour la France, une météo clémente (n’allant dans aucun des deux extrêmes, malgré un brouillard à couper au couteau au somment du mont Aigoual). Mais peut-être Florac doit-il commencer à renoncer à son statut de mythe-où-la-victoire-ne-se-joue-pas-à-la-vitesse, qui ces dernières années, s'est légèrement effrité.

 
A Florac, Daniel Koroloff

The Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Valkenswaard, the Netherlands, 2011

Beezie Breezes to victory on new horse

 

globalaugust.jpg


She is steady, accurate and very focused.  She has a great team around her and today it all came together.  USA rider Beezie Madden romped off to an emphatic win in the VDL Groep sponsored Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Valkenswaard. Beezie claimed the win with a new team horse Cortes "C' that she has only had for a few months.

This is just her second Global Champions Tour start this year and although Beezie has been competing on the Global Champions Tour since 2006, this is her finest result to date.

Course designing by Italian Uliano Vezzani was a delight for the spectators and riders.  The 15,000 spectators were not kept away by the wet conditions and stood shoulder-to-shoulder ringside and the stands were packed. The VIP marquee was buzzing with activity from the 500 or so guests all involved in the spirit of the competition.

Round two presented a completely unique track with many new fences added and nothing resembled from the first round.

Of the top eighteen combinations that travelled through to the second round, 12 were clear and it looked like too many at this stage.  Three riders on one time fault also went through along with the fastest three riders with four faults.

At this point on calculation Australian Edwina Alexander would remain leader of the Global Champions Tour ranking as none of eighteen could come near her current ranking points of 195, even if she did not gain any points here.

Although the second round didn’t look that tough, the eleven obstacles took their toll with only four going through to jump-off.

First on course, Dutch rider Jur Vrieling took the risks with the Baloubet du Rouet stallion ‘VDL Bubalu’.  A tight turn up to the ‘Jaeger-LeCoultre’ oxer, the second last fence, resulted in a rail down before they headed home in a time of 35.92 seconds.

Itot du Chateau had shown formidable form over the first two rounds and as they covered the first part of the course all looked very promising.  There appeared to be some miscommunication and Itot took off a stride too early to the ‘Triumph Project’ oxer.  A very clever scramble back to the saddle and a circle to re-compose the pair came home with 8 penalties in 43.68 seconds.

Denis Lynch concentrated solely on his own concerns with Lantinus 3 setting sail conscious of having to be clean yet knowing Beezie was to follow. The horse was really getting in the air and they crossed the line clear in a time of 38.92 seconds.

Sitting in prime jump-off position Beezie lost no time with Abigail Wexner’s Cortes ‘C’ and the duo jumped to victory in a time of 38.38 seconds.

With the 8th leg of the 10 round series put to rest, the tour moves to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil 2-4th September.  The concluding round of the 2011 series will be held at the Al Forsan International Sports Arena.

 

PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

Beezie Madden winner of the Global Champions Tour Grand Prix in Valkenswaard said her victory came as a surprise as she was riding her new horse Cortes.

Speaking after her thrilling win in 38.38, the star American rider said: “It is a new horse for me.

“I have had him for several months and this was only my second Grand Prix with him, so I am a little shocked but very happy.”

Asked about runner-up Denis Lynch’s speedy clear round ahead of her Beezie said: “I saw him go and tried to match his round. I made up a stride at one of the fences and was a bit quicker to fence nine, so that is what made him do it.”

Denis Lynch, closely behind Beezie on 38.92, said: “I was very happy with the way Lantinus jumped.

It was a really good course today and it is amazing how the ground put up with the conditions we jumped.”

When asked whether the frequent and often heavy rain affected the performance of horses and riders Denis quipped: “Not me, I come from Ireland and it rains quite a lot there!”

Dutch rider Jur Vrieling said he was pleased with his third place despite four faults in the jump off and said: “This is my first time in the Global Champions Tour and so I am really happy. I am really happy to be behind the top riders.”

Asked if the Valkenswaard show on home ground in the Netherlands was extra special, Jur said: “Absolutely. It is really nice to ride here and Jan Tops makes a really nice show and it is great to do this for your own public and sponsors.”

Edwina Alexander spoke of her delight at holding on to the top spot in the Global Champions Tour rankings despite a close call in the jump off.

Edwina, the world’s top ranked female rider, said she only just managed to stay on her champion horse Itot du Chateau: “He just lost the footing a bit and when I went to go forward he got a bit stuck so I had no chance.

“I managed to stay on, but I don’t know how I did it. I had a lot of mud on my face, so I was pretty close to the ground.

“Of course I would have liked to have won. It was a great competition.”

Global Champions Tour President Jan Tops said the new high-tech surface with special drainage had worked superbly in the rainy conditions during the weekend.

He said: “I was happy today with the ground which held up well in the rain.”

Jan and the riders heaped praised on course designer Uliano Vezzani saying: “Uliano knows how to build courses.

“I think he did a great job getting four in the jump off.”

The GCT President and Founder also thanked the sponsors of the Valkenswaard show and said: “I want to thank our sponsor VDL, which has been our sponsor for seven years. We are very lucky to get this kind of prize money because without that we cannot get this kind of level for the sport.”

Yiannis Broustas, The Netherlands Managing Director of Global Champions Tour sponsor Jaeger Le-Coultre, explained why the prestigious Swiss watchmaker teams up with GCT.

He said: “It is totally to do with the DNA of who we are.

“Luxury is not instant and winning an event like that is not instant either. It takes a lot of effort, a lot of talent and great passion.

“These are the values that we have and why we are very proud to be at this great event.”

Horse Festival of Valkenswaard 5-7th August 2011

Sunday 7th August

 

CAVALGLOB005_2999-copie-1.jpg


The final day of competition at the Horse Festival in Valkenswaard was a huge success for Dutch rider Hen van de Pol, taking the Small, Medium and Big Tour classes against very good competition from an international array of competitors.

 

Young Horses

Table A with one jump-off

Five of the 19 six year olds and 8 of the 14 seven year olds headed to jump-off to ascertain the best youngster of the Horse Festival. The Six year olds were first to jumped-off before the course was raised for the seven year olds.

Gerco Schroder (NED) bettered his third place posted on Friday with the stallion Eurocommerce VD Groep Zagreb by taking out feature young horse class on the program today.

A good time of 38.29 was set by Phillip Lever (AUS) with his 6 year old Kannan x Quidam de Revel bred gelding that was rounded up later by the seven year olds. The combination eventually sat in third place. “It is only my second show with this horse,” Phil said.  “He is a big horse with  lots of scope and should be a good horse in the future.”

Schroder was first out of the seven year olds to be very tidily home in a time of 35.91seconds.

Belgian Jody Bosteels was the closest rival finishing clean with a with a time of 37.98 seconds with Hanry Reynten’s  7 year old Action Breaker stallion Explosive III.

“It was a good class and I am pleased with the way the horse jumped and to be second place,” stated a happy Jody as he dismounted.   “I am training him to go to the World Young Horse Championships in Lanaken.  He was 3rd at the Belgium 7 Year Championships and I have had him for about 2 ½ years.”

 

Special Invitational 1.15m

Belgium rider Elisa Schepers realised her second rosette for the show as she came in behind winner Joanne Sloan-Allen (IRL) who won yet another class here at the Horse Festival of Valkenswaard.

Elisa was early to go in the jump-off and had no choice but to post the best performance time laying it down for those to come.  Her coloured mare Verona set 38.36 to beat.   Kim Rothengatter (NED) on VDL Groep Alitta (38.77sec.) and Kelly Hermans (BEL) riding Wilke (39.63) didn’t better Elisa’s time and they placed 3rd and 4th respectively.

It was Irish Joanne Sloan-Allen, one but last to jump-off with Chekane, who took the shorter track to be home one second faster to win.  Three classes for the Horse Festival of Valkenswaard with two wins is surely a great way to start a partnership with a new horse.  Joanne took the ride on this mare only last week.

 

Special Invitational 1.25m

There’s no point travelling a long way to an event unless you mean business.  And the business of winning was certainly met with success by Brazilian rider Isabella Salles.  This young lady has had exceptional performances over the weekend of the Horse Festival in Valkenswaard. Today she won the Special Invitational 1.25m final event by a massive 3 seconds.

Riding the grey mare Umora, Salles eclipsed fast times set by British riders James Payne and Rebecca Marsh with their horses early in the contest.  American rider Cortright Wetherill attempted to chase Salles down but could only come home in 35.82 to be second.

Charlotte Casiraghi (MON) was also determined to win with her mare Madison D’Olgy coming home clean in a time of 36.31 seconds to rest in 3rd place.

“Winning this class topped off a great weekend, “said the young Brazilian. ”I have won a few classes and placed well also.  This mare won on Friday, was the fastest time yesterday and won again today.  The partnership has certainly come together. “

Salles attributes this to good training. “I came here three weeks ago and train with John and Beezie Madden. It is the first time that I have been able to send a lengthy period with them and I have been able to completely follow their systems of management and training and it has paid off.  They are truly great people.”

Concluding college this year Salles intends to ride full time now with greatful support from her family. “My dad Paulo will hopefully be here next weekend for the Global Champions Tour to watch.  He enjoys the sport and I like him to be part of my life with the horses. I stay for two more weeks before returning to Rio for the Global Champions Tour event and others until the end of November.”

Special Invitational 1.35m

The jump-off of the final 1.35m invitational class on the program for the Horse Festival was an international affair that saw 3 Brits, a Syrian, Brazilian and Dutch rider join two Americas for the jump-off. Four of these went double clean and results set on time given.

Seventeen year old Rebecca Marsh, from Cheshire, UK was second on course with the plan to have a cut knowing that some very good combinations were to follow.  The round was stylish and quick as Rebecca could trust her ride Onarco who she has been riding for about 4 years. They showed a clear set of heels and across the finish line in 39.50 seconds.

“I knew Claire Beecroft (UK) was directly after me and knowing she could go fast  I had nothing to lose,” commented Rebecca after the ride. “It is the best win for me and 100% worth coming here from England.  My mum Mary won here four years ago with this same horse.  My parents give me great support and we are really enjoying the Horse Festival.”

Claire Beecroft showed how consistent her and the Sergeant Pepper mare Sally are jumping clear.  They were a little slower through the double as the mare appeared to get a little more airborne and they completed in 40.06 to be second.

Dutch rider Lauren van Berkel chose a tighter track with Little Lancer and posted the fastest time 38.88 but felled the oxer at the second last.  Brazilian Isabella Salles, who has had a very successful weekend, didn’t quite capitalize on the first available inside line and finished clean in 40.06seconds.

Last to go Flaminia Straumann (USA) chose to produce a nice round from the big jumping grey Tarpan completing clear in 44.84 seconds to be 4th in line.

 

Small Tour Final – Table A with Jump-off

Homeland victory today for Dutchman Henk van de Pol with the Buckskin ‘Flicka’ in the Small Tour competition that saw 41 strong combinations start. “This 9 year old mare is very, very quick,” Henk said after the round. “ The plan was always to try to win the class as I attempted to do yesterday.  If we had not had one down then we would have won that class also, as we had the fastest time. She is a nice second team horse, not a Grand Prix horse, but a winner of classes at this level.”

Jody Bosteels (BEL) scored another good placing to his scorecard for the day, this time a to second place with Coconut 27.  This imposing grey ‘Concorde’ gelding has place very consistently over the Global Champions Tour events throughout the series tis year and a great team horse for the Belgium rider.

Swedish competitor Mathilda Karlsson placed third

1st Henk van der Pol   Netherlands   Flicker 0/0/57.56

2nd Jody Bosteels   Belgium   Coconut 27  0/0/58.73

3rd Cassinus  Sweden  Mathilda Karlsson

4th Zeline Rob Heijigers Netherlands   0/0/60.84

5th Calypos Z  Eric van der Vleuten  0/0 60.88

6th Zeosina L James Fisher 0/0/61.38

 

Medium Tour – Table A with jump-off

Henk van der Pol turned in back to back wins today.  Immediately following the win in the Small Tour Henk headed to the grassed arena to walk the course for the Medium Tour.  Full focus played out well as he won the Medium Tour with John Straagst’s buckskin ‘Chesterfield’.

As 13 of the 45 field jumped-off, all riders were out to win but van der Pols felt confident with his mare’s ability. “I have had this speedy mare for about half a year,” explained Henk.  “She has done a lot of local events with her owner and now stepped up to this bigger national event today.  The win today is good and she can do a little bit bigger classes in the future.  She is very, very careful.”

They were careful and fast winning in a time of 35.88. “We had a good run to fence three and then 7 strides to the double and everything came up well.  This is where I think we won the class,” stated Henk.

In form rider of the show Thomas Weinberg claimed 2nd place with Violetta 53 with a time of 36.72 seconds.  This 8-year-old Voltaire mare won the Medium Tour class the prior day and is certainly one to look for in Grand Prix’s in the future.

British rider James Fischer, last to go, appeared to have Low river Queen Z motoring as the smooth round ended clean in a time of 36.52 seconds.  Not good enough to round up Weinberg and Van der Pol yet smart enough to take the third place spoils.

 

Big Tour – Table A with Jump-off

When riders are on fire at an event the momentum often carries them to further successes throughout a show. 

Henk van de Pol secured 8000 euros and his third tour class today.  Having already won the Small and Medium Tour events, Henk put in a very quick jump-off round on Kirfa de Kreisker.  The Papillon Rouge mare crossed the timer at 38.47 seconds bettering Gerco Shroder’s earlier set time of 39.20 seconds of on Eurocommerce Vigaro.

 

“I wanted to win again today,” Henk assured us as he was preparing to head into presentations. “This mare has only been with me for two weeks and has placed already in Grand Prix’s recently.  She is extremely capable as proven here today.  It would be good to ride her next week in the Global Champions Tour, so I hope to see you here next week.”

Maikel van der Vleuten, who was early to set the pace at 39.69 seconds ended up taking the third position with VDL Groep Vleut.

Results showed a very strong stranglehold by the Dutch in this Big Tour final event on the program of the Horse Festival in Valkenswaard.

The International Concours program of showjumping will commence next Friday 12th August and conclude on Sunday 14th.  The feature event, the Global Champions Tour of Valkenswaard, The Netherlands, will start at 14h15.  For those who are unable to come to this 8th round of 10 in the global series, viewing of the first round can be seen at GCT Live at www.globalchampionstour.com or watched on Eurosport to all countries at 21h00 (CEST).

The first day of competition at the Horse Festival in Valkenswaard was met with a cooler day but delivered hot competition from the outset.  With 500 of the best horses competing over the two weeks of top class show jumping gaining a victory was not for the faint-hearted.

Young Horses

The Young Horse class was a combined event of 6 and 7 year old horses over a two-phase competition.  The 6 year olds jumped before the course was raised and the 7 year olds showed what they were made of.

Nineteen 6 year olds and fifteen 7 year olds contested with victory going to the 7 year old bay mare Zanuschka by Sheraton out of an Emilion mare.  Ridden by Dutch rider Rob Haijligers the pair, who were out latter in the draw finished clean in a time of 30.04.

“I have had this horses since a 5 year old, “ said Rob.  “She is careful, with a bit of blood and a little sensitive but she has won a lot of classes.  The mare competed in the World Championship Young horses in Lanarken as a 5 year old and has a lot of good performances on her card.”

The Verhoeven family are the owner breeders and are enjoying seeing the horse compete. ”We are very happy with the performance today and really like to see a horse we have bred do well,” commented Mrs Verhoeven adding,  “we continue to breed with the mother of this mare.”

Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) was second with the 6-year-old stallion VDL Groep Astra.  The stylish chestnut is by Air Jordan x Fortissimo.

“The VDL Groep have owned this horse since it was a foal,” explained Maikel. “It has been in the VDL Young Horse training barn in Hoogeloon, near Eindhoven, until it came to me 2 years ago. The horse has good balance, is nice to ride and has a good way of going. We want to give him every chance to see if he can be his best.  He is approved by Zangersheide and we will continue to pursue his stallion classification.”

Medium Tour 1m40 one round against the clock

Fresh off the lorrie and winner in the first Medium Tour class was Adiand the 11-year-old, Ohio van de Paddenborre chestnut stallion, ridden by Belgium rider Constant van Paesschen.

Norwegian Marie Valdar Longem placed 2nd with Rusedski (Darco x Concorde).  “I have been riding this horse for a year now after purchasing him from a girl in Norway.  He has plenty of experience, as was Robert Whitaker’s speed horse. I have done up to 1.45m classes and used him for speed classes as he is very fast.  He has won a lot and placed almost every time for me.” She put in her best round but was rounded up by a Constant. “I went inside 2-3 and also fence 4 to 5 and the winner took ne further inside option and that is where I lost it.”

A happier memory to Valkenswaard today as Marie broke her pelvis at this same show last year. “Yes that was unfortunate but all is healed and I am back into riding. I finished high school last week and travelled down here with my trainer Geir Gulliksen.  I will continue to stay on at Stal Tops with my horses for 6 weeks with my team of horses and head to shows in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium.”

Irish rider Mark McAuley firmed up the 3rd place with Maddalena Valenzano Menada’s 8 year old ‘Par Trois’.

 

Small Tour – Table A against the clock

With 47 starters in the Small Tour it was not going to be an easy feat to be triumphant.

German Thomas Weinberg scored the fastest time of 59.39 with the Drosselklang II bred gelding Dorian Red 2.

“The Drosselklang II bred horses are very intelligent,” said a confident Weinberg. “He knows his job and if there is not a rider error you can always catch the time in a class. He is a super speed horse, very competitive and naturally unbelievably fast.”

The Weinberg’s sold the now 9 year old as a 7 year old and then purchased him back in partnership with sponsor Herman Tilke as an 8 year old. “He has developed really well since a 7 year old and competed with success as an 8 year old in the Aachen Young horse class,” Weinberg discusses his good performances.  “Also in 2010 he won in San Remo and in Linz.  Again in 2011 in Linz he won 3 classes and was in the top 3 placings in each class he was in at Arezzo, Italy.”

Dutch rider Albert Voorn placed second with Eurocommerce Lexington in a time of 59.57 and Alexandra Thornton who has changed from riding for USA to Great Britain shores went to 3rd place (60.92 secs) with the Quick Star bred mare Noa de Bacon who is owned by Florence Couperie.

 

Invitational 1.35m – Table A against the clock

British rider Claire Beecroft again found a way to win the 1.35m with her Sergeant Pepper bred mare ‘Sally’ setting a clear round time of 58.17 seconds.  Having won the 1.40m at the GCT Invitational class in Monaco and placed in the top 10 at other GCT invitational events this year, they proved that they are a consistent combination.

“I have had this horse for 3 years buying her as a 9 year old in the UK from Cressy Reading.” Claire spoke about the bay mare. “”She is a bit spooky and can get a bit worried about people and surrounds but can always be relied on to jump once she gets going.”

After placing in Valencia, Cannes and Monaco Claire took her back to the UK for a spell before heading to the GCT event in Chantilly and now to Valkenswaard.

“She jumps well when it gets a bit bigger and is awesome if I don’t make a mistake, ” added Claire.

Brazilian rider Isabella Salles steered Carlos (Cappucino x Cor de la Bryere) to a good time of 58.65 seconds but was rounded up by Claire four horses later.

German rider Pia-Katharina Beeking and Flower Boy were second on course setting a time of 59.76 that eventually settled her to 3rd place.

“This gelding is by Cheers Cassini and the mother is Flower the great horse of John Whitaker’s that won at Aachen and Calgary. I have had him for 1 year now and if nothing goes wrong he will be my best horse. Last year he competed in youngster classes and was really good. It was a nice class today and nice warm up for things to come.”

Invitational 1.10m – Table A against the clock

Australian rider Georgina Harvey’s early good efforts to win the 1.20m special invitational on her newly purchased horse Tresor with a time of 60.28 was later pushed aside as Belgian Elisa Schepers came home nearly a second faster (61.03).

Georgina came to Europe to ride and train at Stal Tops about 8 weeks ago with the plan to ride at the Global Champions Tour events in Monaco, Chantilly and here in Valkenswaard.  “This horse in particular has fitted very well and it feels like I have been riding him for quite some time” said Georgina. “The shows are also very, very nice as the organisers do their best to make it a good experience for all riders.”

Elisa Scheper’s win with the piebald mare Verona adds another trophy to her collection. “I have had this horse since 2006 and she has already had a foal, yet not coloured,” said Elisa. “Last year I won in Roggel International with her in the invitational 1.15m.”

It is Elisa’s first time competing in Valkenswaard and she is enjoying the win. “I was given this horse as a birthday present from my husband, but he actually bought her to breed with. I won my first start with her but had to wait a year until she was back to competing. I now am waiting for an embryo from her by Arko III.”

Kelly Hermans, also from Belgium, was third with Wilke a bay mare by No Limit in a time of 61.77.

 

Invitational 1.20m – Table A against the clock

Brazilian lady rider Isabella Salles continues with success today winning the Special Invitational 1.20m with Mosman van de Most’s grey mare ‘Umora’.

Following on her 2nd placing in the 1.35m with another of her team Isabella has finished the day with top success.

She beat home Belgium rider Stephanie Andries bettering her time by over 3 seconds.

Stephanie, who rode her own horse Cicero, was having her first start at the famous Valkenswaard Horse Festival. “ Really this is the first time to compete here and I am very happy wit how things have gone,” she said.  “A group of us decided to share the costs of coming here, taking a VIP table and entering our horses.  We are having a great time. Of course doing well is very good and I hope that it stays like this over the two weeks of competition.”

Being a partner of a dealer has difficulties of its own she explains. “I ride horses with my partner Carl Cox, and the horses don’t often stay with us for long.  However, this horse was bought for me by my parents about a year and a half ago and it is here to stay for me. He is a very nice horse and does everything to stay clean and help me out.  He is a great amateur horse.”

Italian rider Maddalena Valenzano Menada to third place with Quidana fulfilling a good day for her team also as her team rider Mark McAuley placed 3rd in the previous Medium Tour 1.40m.

 

Big Tour 1.45m

The last class on the busy schedule saw the sun shining on the spectators and also on Gerco Schroder (NED) who won the class convincingly with the very nice stallion Eurocommerce Vigaro.

Gerco has a lot of time for this stallion. “He came to me 6 months ago from Roelof Bril.  We have seen this good horse since he was a 4 year old being brought along nicely and now we had a chance to do something with him.”

Gerco has already set plans for him. “I am doing big classes at smaller events and by the end of the year I have the plan to start him in classes in bigger international shows.  Today was a good step.  He is a very nice horse and very good in the mind.  Over summer we have been using frozen semen and his progeny on the ground are looking very good.”

 

 

Saturday 6th August, 2011

 

The Horse Festival in Valkenswaard continued today with another full program of classes.  Perfect conditions were presented for the 500 or more horses in attendance and the thousands of knowledgeable equestrian spectators coming from all over the world to take part in this popular events in The Netherlands.

 

Young Horses Table A – One round

13 from 36 starters in the 6 & 7-year-old horses jumped clean in the one round table A with the best time determining the winner. The track was flowing with true distances, two one stride doubles and a liverpool under an oxer were enough challenges for the young horses. 

 

Filipe Ramos Guinato (BRA) won the Young Horse class riding Silvia Balsco Villalonga’s Stallion Quoit Or.

“I have had the ride on this horse since it was a 4 year old as Silvia bought it especially for me to ride,” commented Filipe. “The dividends are paying off with this very nice horse and I am very happy with the way he is making good progress though the young horse classes.  This French bred stallion (L’Arc de Triomphe x Le Toto) has very good prospects for the future if all goes to plan.

Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) continued to excel with VDL Groep Aristo Z,  owned by Stoeterij Duyselshof.  The six-year-old stallion by Air Jordan was placed 2nd also yesterday being the best performed 6 year old.

Line Raaholt from Norway, was third with Hestecompanier’s 6 year old Abrisco V.

 

 

 

Small Tour 1.35m

Speed king Thomas Weinberg (GER) replicated his win of yesterday with Dorian Red 2 in the Small Tour.  Weinberg was able to round up American rider Cara Raether & Hopes are High Z ‘s time of 38.28 as he came home in 38.19 seconds.

Although defeated by a fraction of a second Cara was still pleased with her horse.

“Heading into the jump-off I knew that Edwina had done 7 down the last line and this was the question for me as I entered the course.  I did a tight turn onto the 2 verticals and it paid off.”

“I have had this horse for about 18 months having purchased him from Dutch rider Ruben Romps who rode him in Young Rider classes in Europe.  He has worked very well for me and is the speedster of my team. Last summer I came to Europe and competed for the USA with him.  He is a naturally fast horse and very good in those situations.”

Cara is at the end of her summer tour in Europe and heads home to Trelawny Farm located in Bedford, New York about 40 miles north-east of New York City.

“The Horse Festival and Concours International will be my last two events in Europe this summer before I head home for a few more events.  I have been competing and training here with 7 horses at Johan Heinze’s place in Belgium since June.”

Edwina Alexander (AUS) was third with the Kannan bred gelding Quimono de la Roque that she has been bringing along for the past year stating, “I was happy with the 7 year old horse today. I could take a chance in the jump-off.”

 

Medium Tour 1.40m Table A Against the Clock

Thomas Weinberg (GER) continues to blitz his opponents, taking his second win at the Horse Festival of Valkenswaard.  Competing on another of Herman Tilke’s horses Weinberg captained the bay mare Violetta to a fast time one round in 66.77.

They pushed Dutch rider Henk van de Pol and the buckskin Chesterfield to second (67.52sec).  Although Thomas’s mother Helena Stormanns late attempt to win with John Popley’s Spence II appeared to be close they held to 3rd place with a time of 70.29.

Weinberg commented on the course: “Although the course was not overly technical it required a very fast horse to win the class.  There were a few turns that could be made.  A lot of fences fell, particularly the oxer that had to be jumped turning out of a corner from the short side, with many taking the back bar.”

He has plenty of time for this winning 8-year-old Voltaire mare. “She is another very competitive horse of mine.  In fact, this weekend I have bought all of my speed type horses. She has a lot of blood bordering on being crazy.  I think that edge gives her the speed in the ring – she is like a rocket ready to explode. I have to be careful riding her as she cuts corners and eats the inside line a lot and I have to watch I don’t know a fence down with my foot.  She is a real fighter and I think she will develop into a nice Grand Prix horses in a few years.”

 

Big Tour 1.45m

Belgian rider Constant van Paesschen set a very secure time of 68.34 with his stallion Adiand as first to go in the jump-off in the Big Tour.

Jane Davies, who crossed the channel from the UK to ride at the Horse Festival in Valkenswaard, chased Constant down in a time of 68.20 seconds.  However, coming hot on their heels was very experienced international Edwina Alexander (AUS).  Riding her up and coming star Mel D’Argences Edwina took every shortened line with the Quick Star mare and was home free in a time of 67.41 to take the win.

 

Invitational 1.15m

Irish competitor Joanne Sloan-Allen took out the Special Invitational 1.15m with Chekane beating home two Belgian riders Kelly Hermans (Wilke) and Fanny Machiels (Uquique)

Joanne was happy with the results. “The mare Chekane only came to me last Sunday and I decided to start her in a small class.  She is a super mare and very careful and can really jump.  Hopefully she will be a good one for the future.”

Joanne comes to Europe each year with a team and this year has brought 8 horses. “We base in Belgium, at Carol Cox’s place: horses, three kids and crew in tow.” She said. “It is so far to travel from Ireland so we normally stay the summer.”  It’s great for a success today as last year just before this event I broke my leg and was so disappointed that I couldn’t compete.”

“Valkensaard is my favourite event to come to and I always have success.  My kids have grown up coming here as I never miss a year.  The two weeks of jumping is a great place to start new horse sand produce the ones that are going even further.”

Joanne added, ”The ground is always perfect, the jumps excellent and the horses gain so much good experience.”

 

Invitational 1.25m

1.25m Special Invitational saw British rider Claire Beecroft fill the top two positions in this class.  Having had many successes at the GCT events this season this is a further consolidating result for Claire. 

First to go in the jump-off winning horse Melton came home in 58.76 and although Claire rode Sally in the jump-off towards the end of the class she could improve on the time set with finishing on 62.38.

Cortright Wetherill from the USA filled third with Happy Hill Farm’s bay mare ‘Whoops’.

 

Invitational 1.35m

An all woman line-up in the prize giving for the 1.35m with Italian rider Maddalena Valenzano Menada winning by 3 seconds with her mare Quidana.(38.65seconds).

Maddalena discusses the jump-off. “I knew I had to be fast even though there were not so many in the jump-off.  To be honest the first round track was quite testing and it was an unexpected surprised that I was clean.”

“Quindana is a very careful horse but you need to ride as accurately as possible to win so I was very pleased with the final result.  This summer I have had more time to ride and train with good preparations coming to Valkenswaard. My trainer Mark McAuley and I have been working on every single detail.  It is a good team effort; family, crew, trainer and horse!”

German rider Pia-Katharina Beeking filled second and third place with Solem’s Ticket (41.23secs.) and Flower Boy (45.69secs).

“Solem’s Ticket is my best horse and normally I jump him in bigger classes.  Yesterday he was not so good so with today’s good rounds I am pleased.” Said Pia, adding.  “I didn’t see Maddalena go as I jumped from Flower Boy to warm up Solem’s Ticket. I tried to go fast but it was not enough to catch her very good time.  My round was smooth and I had a good rhythm so all was good in that respect.”

Tomorrow, Sunday 7th August will have a busy program of events with the final of the CSI 2* Small, Medium and Big Tours, Young Horses, and Special Invitational events.
