During the break for the Grand Prix of La Coruna, a surprise tribute was made to recently-retired French legend Michel Robert. Drawing plenty of emotion from the crowd and riders, Michel accepted a heartfelt tribute from the show at La Coruna.
At 64 years young, Michel has earned thirteen internationally-acclaimed medals between the Olympic Games, the World Championships and the European Championships. Noted as a living legend, equal to those such as Nick Skelton and John Whitaker, Michel Robert’s contributions to the sport have been insurmountable.
