Best of CHIO Aachen 2011-2019, part one

CHIO Aachen photo special

This week, we were supposed to be working at one of our favourite events in the world: CHIO Aachen. 

However, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the organisers to cancel the 2020-edition and feeling a slight longing for this special event we dived into our archives to bring back some of our favourite memories from when we began covering the event in 2011.

First out: Nick Skelton and Big Star at the in-gate as the British rider and his team realises that he has won the 2013 Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen.
