The HUBSIDE Jumping's competitions, which were launched in April with the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR and continued to be successful in June, have become important events on the European show jumping scene, in a little less than a season. Sponsored by HUBSIDE and SFAM, and created by the businessman and rider Sadri Fegaier, the HUBSIDE Jumping competitions are totally unique events in their kind, set in the heart of the French Riviera.
The HUBSIDE FALL TOUR in September, like those in April and June, will be held in the newly renovated Ecuries du Golfe de Saint-Tropez. Benefiting from the early autumn warmth, the competitions take place over four weeks from 19 to 22 September, 26 to 29 September, 10 to 13 October and 17 to 20 October. Located in the picturesque parish of Grimaud in the Provence-Alpes-Côtes d’Azur region, the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR is a unique showcase for high-level sport against the magnificent backdrop of the Gulf of Saint Tropez.
The HUBSIDE FALL TOUR enjoys a central location in the parish of Grimaud, a medieval hillside village built around an 11th century castle that overlooks the surrounding rocky slopes, hilly woodland and fields. One the region’s most renowned destinations, Port Grimaud, is situated nearby. It is known as the “Little Venice of Provence” thanks to its network of canals and highly colourful seaside houses. Visitors from all over the world come to enjoy its picturesque charms.
A successful businessman and an international rider in his own right, Sadri Fegaier is the visionary founder of the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR. The event is a part of a new series of top shows in Grimaud, which includes the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR in April, the HUBSIDE JUMPING in June and the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR in September-October.
The HUBSIDE FALL TOUR is presented by its title sponsor, HUBSIDE, a web design platform launched last year and a subsidiary of SFAM, the main event sponsor.
SFAM is the European leader in insurance brokerage, specialising in insurance in the mobile phone, multimedia and optical sectors.
The HUBSIDE FALL TOUR puts particular emphasis on the needs of the horses and riders with a spectacular 120m by 70m competition ring alongside a 100m by 50m warm-up ring. Every day, a team of illustrious course designers will be building the CSI1 *, CSI2 * and CSI4 * courses for professionals and amateurs as well as five classes a week that count for the Longines Rankings. Every week, the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR will boast a CSI4* Grand Prix with €100,000 of prize money.
The management of the event is ensured by Denis Monticolo - Managing Director and Eleonora Ottaviani, the Sports Director.
The HUBSIDE JUMPING’s competitions, including the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR, are open to everyone and free of charge. The public can rub shoulders with the greatest champions at the warm-up ring or in the village’s aisles, at the stands of the equipment manufacturers, the event’s institutional partners or at the ice cream shop. Free grandstands situated around the ring play host to many spectators who also meet up at the show’s restaurant, where they can enjoy an exceptional view of the ring and great sport.
