I feel like if I ever had a lambergini I won't park in inside the riding arena. Trucks are way better anyway.At shows I tend to just drool over people's living quarters.

That is some amazing riding. I've only seen english shows on TV but I would love to watch one sometime. Do they have the sports cars jump too?

Great photos, I am very jealous. I sat in my living room and watched the live stream online, while cursing at the buffering nonsense.

No. It was a $1m total price money, she won, $350k. If someone wins all seven (I think) series, they get $7m.
I believe that this was the first $1m grand prix, which is awesome and taking the sport to a whole new level.


Of course I was gutted for Antares, I am a groupie!!

Sunday was HITS' 4th $1 Million GP, but the 1st at Thermal. HITS Saugerties has held the event 3x: in 2010, 2011, and 2012. McLain won it in 2010 and 2012 and Andre Thieme won it in 2011. Spruce Meadows also has the $1-million CN International class. The class has been won by riders such as Olivier Philippaerts, McLain Ward, Beezie Madden, Eric Lamaze (several times), and Rodrigo Pessoa.

I forgot to say thanks for posting the beautiful pictures!
