I’m heading off to the beautiful and amazingly friendly Talavera de la Reina tomorrow.
It’s a fat, long weekend trip in my role of MotoGP geek and Alvaro Bautista fanboy – meeting with Michaela and Tamara to attend Alvaro’s official fanclub winter dinner.
The summer party in August was a superb and unforgettable experience and whatever time and contact I may or may not get with the Batster, I already know that his family, friends and fanclub members will be ridiculously warm and welcoming.
I may post up notes nad pics over the weekend, or not – I have no idea how things will pan out at the moment and where all the time will go.
Hopefully there’ll be stuff to share in due course. For now I just can’t wait to get there :)
Facebook adverts tend to be annoying at the best of times, but surely – given the current news of a crew and ship being held off Somalia for a ransom of supposedly $25m by a bunch of people who let’s face it probably aren’t as much fun as Johnny Depp – isn’t this just a teensy bit crass????
As random as pretty much any other post on here, I need to send big best birthday wishes to the fab Alvaro Bautista who turns 24 today.
The MotoGP 250cc ace and former 125cc world champion has had a slightly frustrating, but still phenomenal year, finishing the championship in 2nd, and turning in some of the fastest, most exciting races I’ve seen. Genuinely edge of the seat stuff.
I’m heading off to his hometown of Talavera de la Reina (southwest of Madrid) next week with a couple of friends to attend his official fanclub’s end-of-season dinner and party, which should be brilliant… Any odds on meeting him again are basically a bonus, as his friends and family, fanclub directors, fans – and the whole population and town in general are just awesome anyway. I’ll be a very happy bunny just to be there again to be honest :)
Happy birthday mate – have a good one!
