Tapas bars are now spread all over the world, but Granada has home-court advantage.
Each June, the town of Lanjarón in Spain kicks summer off with a massive water fight that rages into the night. Don’t mind if we do…
After the tragic Malaysian Grand Prix the mood in the Valencia paddock ahead of the last race of the 2011 MotoGP season was sombre. It was almost as though we were all pleased to see the end of the championship, and not for happy reasons, either. The crowd seemed to sense the mood, and stayed away: it was the lowest turn-out I have ever seen at a race in Spain despite the fact that Dani Petrosa could still finish third in the championship despite missing two races through injury.
Alicante - the place with the airport, right? Wrong. Disregarded by many as just an airport stopover, Alicante has recently transformed itself from a sleepy Spanish town into an increasingly stylish and cultural hotspot for tourists, residents and PUMA Socialites alike. Heralded the ‘cultural capital of the Costa Blanca’, Alicante offers a wealth of architecture and art alongside all the bars, clubs, restaurants and shopping you could wish for (and a beautiful Mediterranean climate to recuperate in the morning after!)
This Sunday MotoGP faces its fifth round (of 18) of 2011, namely the Catalan Grand Prix at the circuit of the same name situated in Montmelo, an industrial suburb in northern Barcelona.
Obviously this weekend is a big occasion for PUMA’s partner team Ferrari, simply as Fernando Alonso is mega here, as a local hero and as previous winner of the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona. That in itself puts a lot of pressure on the team, but here are two factors which further increase it: first, the fact that a fortnight ago in Turkey Alonso scored the team’s first podium of the year, which means a race win is the next on the list of expectations. Let’s be honest: the team needs to win soon.
The world's best national team is finally the champion of the world. What better way to summarize the final? They might not have played their best football the entire time (first game against Switzerland) but they have constantly pulled themselves together and improved, stepped up when needed (game against Germany). They conceded only two goals, and Casillas was deservedly rewarded the Golden Glove. On top of this Spain won the FIFA Fair Play Award, as they only got eight yellow cards through the tournament. Holland got nine in just the final against Spain, and helped making this final the historic for most yellow cards ever: 14!
