Scott RIDER is one of the favourite sons in Bressuire.

Everybody remembers that he was one of the stars of the unforgettable 2010 Highland Games with the most impressive line-up ever seen in France.


The spectators of the next Highland Games will have the opportunity to see Scott RIDER (second from right), Aaron NEIGHBOUR (4th) ansd Hans LOLKEMA (5th) who were already here in Bressuire three years ago.

With their new 2013 challengers, even if they are amateurs, no doubt about it:

the competition will be very exciting...

Just can't wait to see that!

This is quite a new sport in France with only two clubs, Luzarches and Bressuire.

And it's hard to keep up with all other popular sports.

But we always have a fantastic atmosphere and great champions in this exceptionnal environment.
