For the second year in a row, the 26-year-old Arlésien, Vincent Marignan, won the final of the Palme d’Or in the arenas of Beaucaire.
1,500 spectators were gathered in the arenas of Beaucaire, but the show was not really there. Vincent Marignan himself recognizes this: “It was a bit complicated, the bulls weren’t too involved, neither were we. There was not too much string work.“The raseteur did not lack appetite despite his eleven points ahead of his competitors at the end of the first two days, on July 11 and 18, he widened the gap a little more. Monday.
At 26, Vincent Marignan won his second Palme d’Or with 44 points. “These arenas of Beaucaire suit me, I often enjoy myself here.“At the same time, the Arlesien takes first place in the Trophée des As which rewards the best raseteur of the Camargue racing season. The final is set for September 26 in Arles.”The way is still long, he puts into perspective. But I am well classified so I will try to continue in that direction.“
François Martin climbs to third place on the podium of this Palme d’Or with 23 points, ahead of Youssef Zekraoui, winner of the 83rd Cocarde d’Or (25 points). The same won the Raset d’Or. As for the prize for the Best bull in the final, it was awarded to Optimus, 15, from the Baumelles herd of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Finally, the prize for the Best bull over all three races went to Bayard from the Nicollin herd for his race on Sunday 11 July.
