The Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen in images

CHIO Aachen 2018

The 1,000,000 Euro Rolex Grand Slam Grand Prix of Aachen had it all, and offered top sport from start to finish. In the end, three riders managed to produce triple clear rounds. One of them was Luciana Diniz on Fit For Fun, who as last to go in the jump-off did her best to beat Marcus Ehning. But, Marcus had been to fast and Luciana had to settle for the runner-up position for the third year in a row. Photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
