Alexis Deroubaix won the Rolex Grand Prix of Dinard

The Rolex Grand Prix, the highlight of the International Jumping de Dinard, brought together 46 star riders. Only six pairs were clear in the round set at 1.60m.
The victory went to Alexis Deroubaix and Timon d'Aure, selected for the French team heading for the European Championships in Rotterdam later this month. "This result boosts my condense for the Europeans," Deroubaix said. "This time I put
myself in condition since it is the last competition before Rotterdam. I think that during the season, I was sometimes too relaxed, or too
tense, but in a way I did not put enough pressure on myself. This morning, when I woke up, I was really motivated, and now I know how to do put myself in the right conditions to win. "
The second place went to Pénélope Leprevost and Vancouver de Lanlore, another couple heading for Rotterdam. "I am delighted with my horse, he is just ying. Even when I make mistakes, he makes up for it. I never doubted his qualities, from the very beginning I believed in him he love and he gives it back to me, "she said.
German rider Daniel Deusser, who finished third with Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z, said while smiling: "He did everything right, but the rider was little slow today. I wonder where I could have done one stride less, before the double, or before the wall, or before the last fence, but
the last minute the distances were not right. I just had to hope for a second clear round. "
Mathieu Billot and Quel Filou placed fourth, and were followed by Nicolas Delmotte and Urvoso du Roch and Max Thirouin with Utopie
