After too long a layoff, Big Shots is back for the Rugby World Cup in Auckland, the America's Cup in Plymouth, England, and the elephant polo King's Cup in Hua Hin, Thailand. That's more than enough to raise your cups to, but we also paint flags on sheep in Denedin, New Zealand, and fight over their carcasses in Guiyang, China. We take in the annual Palio horse race in Sienna, Italy, the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado, and traditional boat racing on the River Brahmaputra in Suwalkuchi, India. As usual, there's much more. ( 36 photos total)
Giraffa neighborhood rider Andrea Mari reacts after winning the Palio, the famous break-neck bareback horse race around Piazza del Campo, the main square in Siena, Italy on August 16, 2011. The annual Palio pits Siena neighborhoods against one another, and each puts up a horse and rider to race three times around the slippery, dirt covered cobblestone track. (AP Photo/Paolo Lazzeroni)
