scottIn a league of their own: Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos won the Rolex Grand Prix in Geneva. Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos made it their second triumph in Geneva this weekend, when they won Sunday's Rolex Grand Prix and the top prize of 297 000 CHF. After claiming the victory in Friday's Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final, Brash made it a perfect end to his show by throwing all competition aside and yet again underlining why he is ranked the best rider in the world. With thirteen riders in the jump-off it was by no means an easy win for the British rider, who had to battle it out against a strong field of competitors.
