Yo! MFS Cribz: Girona Edition

Click to view whole series

There is no denying that the world’s top cyclists are a breed apart, they are competitive thoroughbreds, human wunderkind graced with nearly limitless physical prowess. What they do on a bike, with their seemingly effortless speed and cagey instincts, is a sight to behold. A sight that creates hordes of ravenous fans and colorful motorcades that stretch beyond the horizon, a sight that fuels respectable economies and liberates the oppressed. These demi-gods are responsible for all of it, a great gift and a great burden, a weight that takes considerable effort to support even for those granted such remarkable powers. Even with all of their stamina and endurance, these cycling phenoms need a place where they can recover, hydrate, and watch House of Cards. Superman has his fortress, Batman his cave, and these real life superheros, they have their apartments, condos, and flats.

 

In an exciting new feature, YO! MFS Cribz, Manual for Speed has been granted exclusive and unprecedented access to these luxury lairs, and we invite you to come along with us as we take you inside their homes to learn about the interior lives and interior designs of some of the most charismatic racers in the game.

Favorite Secret Spot in Girona
Parc Migdia. It’s probably nothing special to most people but after I got hit by a car in 2009 I would crutch over there everyday after rehab sitting near the water on the grass, enjoying the beautiful Girona Spring weather. I did that for a month before I could fly home.

Favorite Secret Spot in Girona 

Girona has a Roman wall surrounding Barri Vell (the old town). There is a small section in the North of the town, near my apartment, and it has a wide hole. I love sitting there, looking over Girona and reflecting on life. With a lovely cool breeze it’s the perfect spot to escape the heat of the day in the summer.

Why live in Girona?

I love the atmosphere and energy that Girona has. It’s a beautiful town, close to the mountains and the coast. Festivals or random pop up events are regular occurrences There is never a dull moment! I enjoy wandering around the old cobbled streets and stairwells in Barri vell, going to the outdoor market to buy fresh produce and, of course, the weather is much better than the UK!”
