Circus! - Bikers: Hard rock sur pneumatiques


You'd better believe the hard rock part. The decibels were incredible, the energy of the bikers just fabulous. They got into the list of winners at this, the 32rd international Festival of Circus in Monaco. Created in 1974 by Prince Rainier, this festival has become of the most important and prestigious in the world. The top award, the 'Clown d'Or' (not just for clowns) is considered by circus folk the supreme award in the world of circus. The bikers (I don't know their nationalities) won the Prix du cirque Kobsov de Kiev.

The President of the Festival is Princess Stephanie who adores circus and it plainly shows in everything she does for this event.

Gosh yes i can imagine the Princess liking all that. It doesn't appeal to me - but Monte Carlo does!!

Really vibrant. Princess Stephanie's inner child is often quite apparent.

This looks fantastic! I like the move toward acrobatics instead of animal tricks at circuses today.
