Nairo Quintana will lead the Arkéa-Samsic team during this year’s edition of Paris-Nice, from March 6 to 13, 2022.

In the weeks leading up to the early-season stage race known as the “Course au Soleil”, Quintana also plans to launch the Tour de la Provence (February 10-13), the Tour des Alpes-Maritimes et du Var ( February 18-20), and the Ardèche Classic (February 26).

“Nairo will start the 2022 season with a ‘classic’ program which worked perfectly for him two seasons ago when he joined the Arkéa-Samsic team. He has a reference for his training with a sporting year which will start with the Tour de la Provence”, declared the sports director of Arkéa-Samsic, Yvon Ledanois. “He will then go on to the Tour of the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var, then the Faune Ardèche, before Paris-Nice. The highlights of his season will be Paris-Nice and the Tour of Catalonia, a program which was planned two years ago but which could not be carried out due to the pandemic.

Quintana won the green jersey and overall in the 2020 Tour des Alpes-Maritimes et du Var. He also took the GC victory in the Tour de la Provence the same year.

At Paris-Nice 2021, Primož Roglič nearly secured the race until a series of accidents and a dislocated shoulder on the final stage put the three-time Vuelta a España winner out of action. These unfortunate events allowed Max Schachmann to claim a second consecutive overall victory.

While ‘Nairoman’ will lead the French team in France, Nacer Bouhanni and Warren Barguil will overlap at a few events in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

The team registered in Barguil for the Mallorca Challenge (January 26-30). He will continue with the Vuelta a Murcia (February 12) before heading to the Volta ao Algarve (February 16-20). Then it’s off to the Classics of Ardèche and Drôme (February 26 and 27). The following week, Barguil will be at the start of the Strade Bianche (March 5), then he will continue a campaign in Italy, in Tirreno-Adriatico (March 7-13), and will crown the campaign in Milano-Turin (March 16).

In 2019, Barguil finished third in the Drôme Classic. He returned the following year, in 2020, to finish one place better, in second place.

“Warren will start the 2022 season with the Trofeo de Mallorca and then race the Vuelta de Murcia and the Volta Ao Algarve in Portugal, where he will be named leader, then he will look back on a classic weekend for him, consisting of the Faun Ardèche and the Classic de Drôme. He will then compete in the Strade Bianche, which he did well in 2014, with a fine eighth place in Siena”, specifies sports director Yvon Caër.

Bouhanni also has a multi-country campaign to kick off his 2022 season and has plans for the Saudi Tour (February 1-5), followed by La Clasica de Almeiria, Spain (February 13) and Drôme Classic (February 27) . Bouhanni also has plans for the Milano-Sanremo monument on March 19.

“The return of the Saudi Tour to the 2022 calendar allows us to team up with Nacer, which in 2020 opened its victory account under our colors for this event,” said sporting director Sébastien Hinault. “The change of program for him this year is due to the fact that he will play Tirreno-Adriatico which will be for him a different approach from Milano-Sanremo which as everyone knows remains one of his main objectives.”

Barguil and Bouhanni will share managerial duties at Tirreno-Adriatico.

In 2021, Tadej Pogačar won the overall in the season-opening Italian stage race known as the “Race of Two Seas”.

With food court at a premium these days, food truck owners in the Valley have to get creative if they want to open a brick and mortar without the high cost of building from scratch. Barbon Tacos, a popular food truck commonly seen around Buckeye and other parts of the Phoenix metro, recently signed a deal with the Holiday Inn off Interstate 10 and the Dysart Highway to bring their Mexican street tacos to the hotel permanently.

Owners Isai and Karina Martinez opened Tacos Barbon inside the hotel about a month ago. The decision to open their restaurant inside a hotel is due to the proximity to their home port in Buckeye and the operation of a commercial kitchen, says Isai Martinez.

“It’s a different kind of concept,” he says. “We have people who are more curious than anything. When I explain it to someone, I compare it to a Starbucks inside a Fry’s. [grocery store]. ”

The married couple started a taco cart in 2019 as a weekend dining gig for extra income. At the time, Isai had a career as a department head for a local architectural firm, but found himself out of work when the pandemic struck in 2020. He and Karina decided to pass on their pass. -time taco-making to the next level to make ends meet. meet.

“I didn’t expect things to continue the way they did,” Martinez said. “The situation turned into an opportunity to work it out until I found another job in my field. After a month, we were doing well enough to think it could work full time.”

Barbon Tacos

Since opening inside the Holiday Inn, Tacos Barbon has expanded its menu with red tacos and mini dillas. The Red Taco ($ 3.85) is a cheese-crusted taco with birria beef cooked with spices and peppers. It comes with a dip available with or without meat.

Martinez says one of the most ordered items is the Flap Skirt Steak Taco Carne Asada ($ 3.25). Other tacos include the grilled chicken ($ 2.95), made-to-order rib eye steak ($ ​​3.95), and al pastor ($ 2.95), which is marinated pork.

“Our sleeper is the al pastor, it’s more salty than sweet,” he says. “It’s more of a Sonoran thing, where my family is from.”

The tacos are served with guacamole, onions and cilantro on a homemade corn tortilla. The salsas, meat, guacamole and tortillas are all fresh daily. Refreshments like horchatas come in 32-ounce cups ($ 6.00) or grab a cucumber-lime refreshment ($ 6.00) or Mexican soda ($ 3.00).

“All around we use high quality produce and meats because we uphold our motto ‘Not your average taco’,” Martinez said.

ATP Cup results: Alex de Minaur beats Matteo Berrettini, Australia v Italy https://classicitaliancycles.com/atp-cup-results-alex-de-minaur-beats-matteo-berrettini-australia-v-italy/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 00:05:44 +0000 https://classicitaliancycles.com/atp-cup-results-alex-de-minaur-beats-matteo-berrettini-australia-v-italy/ The Australians opposed it when Alex de Minaur entered the Sydney pitch, but the 22-year-old was not put off.

The Australians opposed it when Alex de Minaur entered the Sydney pitch, but the 22-year-old was not put off.

Australian Alex de Minaur bounced back from a rambling 2021 and threw down the gauntlet ahead of the Australian Open by stunning world No.7 Matteo Berrettini of Italy in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6, at the ATP Cup in Sydney.

The victory at de Minaur’s spiritual home, Ken Rosewall Arena, inspired Australia to a stunning 2-1 Group B victory over the Italians, who are among the favorites to eliminate the entire tournament.

Even before a ball was served, the Australians opposed it.

Hours before Australia’s opener in the tag team tournament which opens the men’s calendar, James Duckworth has been sent off with a hip injury.

The stroke of the 11th hour left world number 176 Max Purcell at the mercy of much sought-after young Italian Jannik Sinner, who slaughtered him in straight sets.

Watch Tennis Live with beIN SPORTS on Kayo. Live coverage of ATP + WTA tournaments, including every final match. New to Kayo? Start your free trial>

De Minaur (world No.34) found himself with all the pressure on his shoulders and none of the tipsters on his side as the Australians hoped to stay in touch with a best-of-three win.

Winning would have been equal to the biggest win of his career in the standings, and not only that he was going to have to do it against last year’s Wimbledon runner-up, who beat Dominic Thiem, Gael Monfils and Roberto Bautista Agut on the way for last year’s ATP Cup final.

So when the hometown hero opened up a comfortable lead in the first set, Sydney spectators were understandably excited.

They erupted when he took out the first set, 6-3, as a fair reward for keeping his foot on the accelerator for the duration of the game up to that point.

The second set seemed destined for a tie-break from the start, with each man taking turns hitting the other.

In every game he claimed, de Minaur was no less elated in his celebrations than a young Lleyton Hewitt, who sat a few yards away as captain of the Australian squad on Sunday night.

More than one foot foul left the Italian shaken, before the match moved to the second set tiebreaker he so deserved.

The 22-year-old Sydneysider caused a sensation in the tennis world by eliminating the 7-4 tiebreaker and therefore the game.

“I think it’s no secret that this tribunal brings out the best in me. There’s nothing quite like playing at home and in front of a packed crowd, which is just amazing, ”said de Minaur after the fact, visibly moved.

De Minaur suffered his fair share of setbacks last year, the most notable of which was a coronavirus crisis that forced him out of the Tokyo Games.

But the Australian seemed confident he had put the Olympic heartbreak behind him.

“It’s not about how many times you get knocked down… it’s how many times you get knocked down and get up,” he said.

“I’m in the best shape of my life and ready to have a great year.”

Perhaps spurred on by the heroism of their compatriot, Australians Luke Saville and John Peers sealed the victory by dusting Italians Simone Bolelli and Berrettini in the doubles match.

Berrettini was a late inclusion in place of Fabio Fognini, who was substituted for tactical reasons.

After dominating the first set, the two Australians lost their momentum in the second before edging out their rivals in a tie-break to claim the victory in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5.

It was Minaur who was the man of the hour, however.

Ugo’s huge upheaval

Daniil Medvedev’s hopes of avenging heartbreak at last year’s Australian Open ran into trouble on ATP Cup day two when he was ambushed in a three-set thriller by a man who wasn’t even on the toss last week.

Following the withdrawal of Novak Djokovic, world No.2 Medvedev established himself as the biggest star in the Sydney tournament this year, but in his first game he was brought down to earth by French world No.35 Ugo. Humbert, 7-6, 5-7, 6-7.

It took Austria to abandon the ATP Cup in the days leading up to the new year for France to be included in the tournament and as the team’s top seed Humbert had to face the almighty task to fight with the second best man. player in the world.

He may have beaten Medvedev in the pair’s only previous encounter, but few gave the 23-year-old a chance this time around, especially as Medvedev led Russia to victory in the ATP Cup 2021 and went 10-0 in the team events overall. Last year.

Humbert lost the first set in a tiebreaker, but made up for it after three games behind in the second to bring his much-loved rival to a third set.

There was no less tension in the final set, which also ended in a tie-break.

Gathering all the strength he had left after nearly three hours of play, Humbert did the unthinkable and polished the 2021 US Open champion 7-2 in the tie-break to send shockwaves through the community. tennis.

It is the biggest victory in the Frenchman’s professional career to date.

In the first of the previous matches, Russian Roman Safiullin (No.167) caused a major upheaval by beating Frenchman Arthur Rinderknech (No.58) with a set down.

Medvedev’s loss doomed Russia to a decisive doubles match against the French, but the world No.2 combined with Safiullin to avoid what would have been a best-of-three reversal.

Russia beat France 6-4, 6-4 to claim the 2-1 victory.

North American clash

Two traditional rivals clashed in the ATP Cup on Sunday, but a hilarious moment before the second of the clashes between Canada and the United States certainly helped break the tension.

Just hours before the start of the game, Canadian southpaw Denis Shapovalov withdrew from his team’s first singles match of the day, citing fatigue after his isolation with Covid-19.

The world No.14 tested positive upon arrival in Sydney and, although he has since been released from biosecurity protocols, has chosen not to participate in the match.

“I’m disappointed that I couldn’t play the first game, but I didn’t feel physically ready yet, so we did what was best for the team,” he said.

The 11th hour withdrawal propelled world number 238 Brayden Schnur into the spotlight, where American number 24 John Isner took just over an hour to roll him in straight sets.

The second clash, contested by the Canadian world n ° 11 Felix Auger-Aliassime and the American Taylor Fritz (n ° 23) started badly.

As usual, the pair posed on either side of the net for a pre-match photo.

However, no photographer showed up to capture the top ranked players from rival nations, leaving players grinning into the abyss.

“There is no photographer, you can go,” said a match official, realizing the mistake.

The players then dispersed for what started as a close struggle.

Fritz ultimately defeated his opponent to ensure the United States would win over Canada with a game in hand.

As the Australians faced Italy at Ken Rosewall Arena, Great Britain and Germany faced off at Qudos Bank Arena.

The Brits won the opener comfortably, with Daniel Evans (world No.25) holding Jan-Lennard Struff (No.51) at arms length throughout the brawl 6-1, 6-2.

All eyes then turned to the big battle between the German Alexander Zverev (world n ° 3) and Cameron Norries (n ° 12).

Zverev inflicted a similar penalty on Evans by scoring Norries in straight sets, 7-6, 6-1, and setting up a decisive doubles showdown.

There Jamie Murray and Evans, replaced by Joe Salisbury, only needed two sets to defeat the Germans in the match and win the Group C draw.

Another harvest of statistics to come will appear on the European Challenge Tour in 2022 after graduating from the Alps Tour, notably the winner of the Order of Merit Jacopo Vecchi Fossa.

Tour of the Alps, Jacopo Vecchi Fossa

The Italian won twice on the Alps Tour in 2021, first in April at the Abruzzo Alps Open where he won with three strokes, before triumphing again in the penultimate event of the season at the Golf Nazionale Alps Open in October, securing a victory stroke to successfully defend the title he won in 2020.

The 27-year-old, who is no stranger to the Route de Mallorca having already played it 40 times on the Challenge Tour, also finished six more in the top ten on the European Tour by winning the Order of Merit in over 5,000 points.

Another two-time winner, Scotsman Ryan Lumsden, secured his Challenge Tour privilege by finishing second behind Vecchi Fossa on the Order of Merit. The 25-year-old won his first start of the season at Mira Golf Exp.

Acaya Open and Las Castillas Alps, before following that up with a second and fourth place in his next two starts. Spaniard Angel Hidalgo would have secured third place, but he got automatic promotion – and category improvement by winning the VcG-powered Big Green Egg German Challenge in September.

Hidalgo’s compatriot, Victor Garcia Broto, took third place among the graduates, followed by the French duo Paul Elissadle and Paul Margolis. Margolis, who is only 22, has played all season as an amateur and won once – at the Mira Live the Soul Open.

He finished in the top ten three times before turning pro at the end of the season. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to train them to success and accompany them through difficult times.

This is what seems to have undertaken Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics (also in the name of friendship). A great enthusiast of golf, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems like Jon Rahm, number one in the world rankings, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, returns in 2021 to amaze.

“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the all-time greatest Olympian with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but i can say he has helped me a lot in the last period.

These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, now 12 / o in the world rankings. “The mental aspect is something I’ve been working on a lot with him lately.

I am really lucky to have him around me. He is also a great amateur of golf and having it more and more in our world is an added value. “This is the opinion of Spieth who played yesterday, alongside Phelps, the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second in the Pga Tour Play-Offs starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.

  • Indebted Italy suffers from rising yields
  • The country built a buffer over a decade of low rates
  • The market risks testing the ECB in crisis again

FRANKFURT, Dec.21 (Reuters) – Italy faces new questions over its debt sustainability as the European Central Bank recalls emergency aid that has helped the eurozone’s most indebted economies survive to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tackling the economic and health crisis has come at a cost, with governments digging deep to help businesses and households. Italian public debt fell from 134.8% of GDP in 2019 to a target of 153.5% this year.

The purchase by the ECB since March 2020 of 250 billion euros of Italian debt as part of its Emergency Pandemic Purchase Program (PEPP) has, however, limited borrowing costs, bond yields Italian at 10 years is now lower than before the pandemic at 0.9%.

But the prospect of the PEPP ending in March has rekindled concerns over Italy, the eurozone’s third-largest economy, which has a chronic growth problem and is large enough to destabilize the entire 19-country currency bloc.

“It seems likely that Italian yields would start to rise significantly if the ECB stopped buying Italian bonds,” said Jesper Rangvid, professor of finance at Copenhagen Business School, in his Blog.

“The euro zone would be in trouble again.”

The eurozone central bank still has an older and smaller bond buying program, but one that could also dry up within 12 months if inflation stabilizes at its 2% target, after wide fluctuations during the pandemic.

Some even referred to the eurozone debt crisis a decade ago, which saw bond yields from Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain soar as investors bet on a burst. of the single currency.

It ended when then ECB President Mario Draghi pledged to do “whatever it takes” to save the euro – code to buy the bonds of troubled states.

“If the ECB stops buying or removes the commitment to buy ‘whatever it takes,’ debt servicing costs will rise again, precipitating the catastrophic loop,” John Cochrane, senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford, wrote.

THE DRAGHI EFFECT

The search for a solution could again fall to Draghi, now Italian Prime Minister who chairs a broad coalition.

It will all depend on Italy’s ability to put to good use the roughly € 200 billion in grants and cheap loans from the EU Stimulus Fund, available until 2026, provided Italy continues. to respect the political conditions of Brussels.

The credibility of the former head of the ECB with the markets and in Brussels should offer him some protection.

Yet centuries-old weaknesses in Italy’s economy remain, including low employment, stagnant productivity, lack of investment in education and technology, a suffocating bureaucracy and a gaping north-south divide.

And Draghi is expected to be named the new head of state soon, removing him from direct executive power in the final year before the elections in early 2023.

“I fear (…) political parties will kick the box and many reforms will not be approved,” said Lorenzo Codogno, a former head of the Italian treasury who now heads the consultancy firm LC Macro Advisors.

CUSHION

Years of low interest rates have helped Italy buffer itself against a market storm.

Rome paid 4.5% of GDP to service its debt in 2007, while its debt-to-GDP ratio was 104%, according to OECD data. By 2020, the cost of borrowing had fallen to 3.3% despite a debt ratio that skyrocketed to 156%.

The Italian Treasury also took advantage of the ECB’s generosity to extend average maturity of its debt, guarding against a sudden surge in yields.

This has lowered the hurdle Italy must overcome to keep its debt stable: the pace of its nominal economic growth is higher than the interest rate it pays.

“You don’t need a macroeconomic miracle to get a stable debt trajectory. But of course you need growth and inflation,” said Dirk Schumacher, economist at French investment bank Natixis .

EVERYTHING THAT’S NECESSARY

But Italy’s history of political instability and weak growth suggests that even that cannot be taken for granted.

A global rise in yields increases the risk that the surge in markets around the world will reverse, leaving weaker borrowers like Italy exposed.

If that happens, investors will want to know whether ECB Director Christine Lagarde is ready to honor her predecessor’s pledge.

“I am quite confident that the ECB would do the right thing, again, in the event of financial fragmentation,” said Frederik Ducrozet, strategist at Pictet Wealth Management.

When Italy came under market pressure at the start of the pandemic, Lagarde, former French finance minister and IMF chief, said the ECB was “not there to narrow the spreads” between countries’ bond yields. of the euro zone.

As she reconsidered these remarks, doubts about her engagement persisted.

“(It) still resonates in the markets and undermines the credibility of the ECB,” said Carsten Brzeski, economist at Dutch bank ING. “It was a rather expensive slip.”
