“SOLD OUT” has become a symbol of the great event of Istria Wine & Walk in Istria. He bears the title due to the fact that all tickets put up for sale are sold out online within 24 hours. Well, it is a great tourist story and a quality product that is the motive for coming to the destination. Online ticket sales for Istria Wine & Walk started today and it will be interesting to see in how many days or hours 600 tickets will be sold out for this year’s jubilee of this great tourist story. The story is very simple and at least phenomenal. Hard to describe in words or photo and video material, because it simply needs to be experienced. Istria Wine & Walk on this year’s 11-kilometer walk awaits as many as nine top Istrian winemakers and nine local producers and caterers at seven refreshing stops. Every two kilometers, walkers can expect winemakers and local producers who will offer them local indigenous specialties and top wines. I have already written on this topic, read more HERE, and now the fifth edition of the Istria Wine and Walk event has been announced, which will take place on May 18, 2019, starting in Buje, and the question arises as to how many days or hours 600 tickets will be sold out this year. RELATED NEWS: And yes, it is important to point out that these are mostly visitors from Slovenia, Austria, as well as from Croatia. So, people from Zagreb get in the car and come to Istria for the weekend, and in this case the motive for coming is exclusively Wine & Walk. I note that the number of tickets was limited by the organizer to 600 tickets, so as not to create too much crowd, and thus destroy the experience of the whole event, although the interest in this event is much higher. And this is supported by the fact that tickets are sold exclusively online within 24 hours. This year, Oštarija Rondo, Aminess, OPG Radošević, OPG Duniš, All event, Primizia food & wine, Konoba Morgan, Buršić and Veralda are in charge of the gourmet offer, while Kozlović, Franković, Celega, Bassanese, Ravalico, Coronica will offer their wines. Cattunar, Cuj and Veralda. Participants will then visit a lookout point with a view of the peaks of Ćićarija and the sea, and then travel to the Škarlina Nature Park with its unique streams and lakes. On the way, walkers will visit the original exhibition “Friends of Tigor” in the Tigor Gallery and will be greeted by accordion and guitar melodies along the way. The walk ends in Buje at a small fair, with a rich entertainment and music program until late at night, where it will be possible to buy numerous local products as a memento of this unique experience.

(REUTERS) – Tour de France champion Chris Froome said yesterday that he had escaped unhurt while having his bike written off by an impatient car driver in a hit-and-run incident.The 31-year-old three-time winner of the world’s biggest bike race, tweeted a picture of the twisted remains of his “totalled” training bike, saying he had been deliberately knocked off by the driver.The Team Sky rider said he was “okay” after the incident that happened during a training ride near his home in the south of France.Sky News reported that it understood Froome would be reporting the incident to police.“Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver, who followed me onto the pavement! Thankfully I’m okay. Bike totalled. Driver kept going!”, the Team Sky rider wrote, adding an emoji of hands clasped in prayer.Team Sky said the Monaco-based Froome had continued his training session after returning home to get a spare bike.Froome is training for June’s Criterium du Dauphine, his familiar warm-up event before the Tour de France between July 1 and 23. He is favourite to win the event for a third successive year.The incident was just another reminder of the continued perils faced by professional cyclists on the road during training rides.It occurred less than three weeks since the death of 37-year-old Michele Scarponi, the former Giro d’Italia winner, who was struck by a van while training in Italy.His team, Astana, described the death of Scarponi, a husband and father of two, as a ‘tragedy too big to be written’.
USC’s newest football coach, Clay Helton, may turn out to be a masterful hire. He loves physical football, dedicates coaching time to both sides of the ball, and has that “it” factor with his inspirational speeches. He seems to be a no frills type of coach who just loves football, a model that has worked extremely well for coaches like Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. A manic dedication to the job appears to be essential in the hunt for championships.This is not to say Helton is anywhere near the caliber of coach that Saban and Meyer are, not yet anyway. This alone makes the timing of Helton’s hire questionable.Yes, Helton has shown great leadership skills in times of crisis and for the most part his power running based offensive scheme has paid dividends, but he hasn’t truly wowed anyone with his coaching. After all, the Trojans went 5-2 to end the regular season under Helton. He has made mistakes in terms of clock management, and his penchant for bubble screens continues the Kiffin and Sarkisian lineage. The team is disoriented on offensive plays occasionally, and they play relatively undisciplined.None of these factors should have disqualified Helton from the job, he just should not have been a shoo-in candidate before the season ended. A lot of these mistakes can probably be attributed to his adjustment to head coaching duties midseason, as well as the youth of the team. There is no doubt that coaches can evolve and get better, especially with an offseason to develop and analyze their skills. With Helton’s work ethic, I believe this will be the case.However, understanding that each game Helton has improved as a coach, why wouldn’t the Trojan decision makers want to extend the sample size of games coached, especially two upcoming games with high stakes. Wouldn’t it have made sense to see how Helton has evolved in a big game from his debut against Notre Dame to Stanford?What about how he would do during the dead weeks in between the championship and a potential Rose Bowl or lesser tier bowl? It would have been helpful to see how he improved in that period from the last time he did this two seasons ago. Helton’s performance thus far has been solid and respectable, but certainly not to a tremendous degree that would eliminate any need to continue an exhaustive coaching search.This hire feels rushed, much like the Sarkisian one a few days after the UCLA game two years ago. We all know how that turned out. It is pretty disconcerting to see an Athletics Department failing to learn from its past mistakes and, again, rush into a decision. That’s not to say Helton may not be successful, it just would have made complete sense to wait until after the bowl season and see if there was any interest from prominent coaches.Some might say that USC needs a coach for recruiting purposes, but USC recruits USC. Plain and simple. Even Paul Hackett brought in Carson Palmer and landed a commitment from Matt Leinart. Any coach USC hired would be able to piece together a top class.Locking in on one guy and ignoring everyone else is what landed us an inept and unprofessional coach last time. Helton seems to have more character, but it is still worrisome to see such stubborn and arrogant behavior from the Athletics Department. Learning from mistakes is the only way to prevent them from happening again. USC has so many resources that the right coach turns around the program in an instant. It could have waited one more month to make sure that Helton was the best guy to do that.I sincerely hope Helton does prove to be that guy. He has the raw materials to make it happen, and if he can hone his craft further, he can create a legacy that follows in the footsteps of Jones, Carroll, and McKay. Beating Stanford on Saturday would be a great place to start his journey.Jake Davidson is a junior majoring in accounting. His column, “Davidson’s Direction,” ran Mondays.
Wimbledon 2019: Serena Williams says knee issue wasn’t factor in Simona Halep defeat In doing so, Halep claimed her maiden title at the All England Club, while Williams was left to reflect on a third successive defeat in major finals.Halep, meanwhile, now has a second crown to add to the French Open she won in 2018, having lost all three of her grand slam finals before that Roland Garros triumph. Related News Simona Halep revealed how she shrugged aside her previous trepidation of facing Serena Williams as she hammered the 23-time grand slam champion in Saturday’s Wimbledon final.Prior to their meeting on Centre Court, Halep had won just one of 10 meetings with the American, at the WTA Finals in Singapore five years ago, but she was put aside her rival 6-2, 6-2 in less than an hour on this occasion. Wimbledon 2019: Serena Williams says she was a ‘deer in the headlights’ in loss to Halep Wimbledon 2019: Simona Halep calls victory over Serena Williams her best match “Well, I thought about the match, but I didn’t think at all against who I play,” Halep told a media conference.”I (have) always been intimidated a little bit when I faced Serena. She’s an inspiration for everyone and the model for everyone.”Today I decided before the match that I’m going to focus on myself and on the final of a grand slam, not on her. That’s why I was able to play my best, to be relaxed, and to be able to be positive and confident against her.When the dream becomes a reality… #Wimbledon | @Simona_Halep pic.twitter.com/MTTkwRdthE— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 13, 2019″I decided this morning how I have to play against her. I knew exactly what I have to do to put her in trouble, not letting her make her game.”When she has time, she plays unbelievable. I played many times against her. I knew how the ball is coming. I knew what she doesn’t like that much.”Today I just went for it like in Singapore. I had that image in my head. I really believed there is the chance to do the same thing. I knew I have to stay there every ball. Otherwise, when she comes back, she’s very powerful. “It’s never easy to face a grand slam final. You can get intimidated by the moment. You can get nervous, too nervous.”I have learned that it’s a normal match, not thinking that much about the trophy, just going there and try to be the best as you can. So I did that.”I said that every time I would play a final of a grand slam, I will do exactly the same thing. So today I did it.”
