Upping the ante in Lille

Upping the ante in Lille

first_imgA bit like the Eurovision Song contest, Europe has always taken the Bakery World Cup slightly more seriously than we Brits have done. While our cousins on the mainland Continent take the contest to heart, with national heats and everything, Royaume-Uni has consistently scored ’nul points’.Hardly surprising, given that we’ve never actually entered before – until now, that is. A team from the UK, sponsored by Tameside College, broke the duck by competing in the Western Europe regional heats at the end of 2007.The prize was a place at the seventh Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie, to give it its proper title, which will be hosted by Paris’ Europain bakery exhibition in April.The UK team was up against stiff competition from Italy, Israel, Belgium, Spain and The Netherlands at the semi-finals in Lille, France. Rookie Gabrielle Baxter had just five months’ training under her belt, while Michael Wilde was a former student, fresh into employment at Slattery’s Patisserie and Chocolatier. The opposition were all full-time professionals.Despite a valiant first-time effort in the Viennoiserie, baguettes and speciality bread and artistic displays, they eventually lost out to winner Spain, who took home the Louis Lesaffre Cup.”They should be really proud of themselves, because the quality was up there with the rest of the teams,” said Tameside’s team captain, bakery tutor Steven Salt, of his team. “They were up against professional bakers, they held their own and they can only get better. We’ll be back.”Runners-up Italy and The Netherlands completed the 12 teams battling it out for the World Cup. Over 35 countries in total took part across the increasingly competitive heats.”The level of the teams is growing very rapidly – you cannot imagine the difference between three years ago and now,” says Europain organiser Jean-Paul Broutin. Baker and World Cup organiser Christian Vabret adds that the event is a chance for bakers to update their image: “It enables us to communicate the passion of bakers, to bring this profession into the new Millennium and to bring together young people and give them ideas.”The Bakery World Cup finals will be held at Europain in Paris from 29 March to 2 April.

LA Clippers close road trip with victory over New Orleans

LA Clippers close road trip with victory over New Orleans

first_imgNEW ORLEANS >> DeAndre Jordan had his fists clenched and his muscles flexed and he howled in satisfaction. Jamal Crawford and Alan Anderson hopped off the Clippers bench, Friday in New Orleans, to celebrate with their teammate.He didn’t jump over Jrue Holiday for a lob. He didn’t block an Anthony Davis shot off Pierre the Pelican. He, along with the four other Clipper players on the court, forced a 24-second shot-clock violation.It was cause for exuberance.“That’s where we create our energy,” Blake Griffin said. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error And, like they’ve come to figure out, they’re at their best when it’s their defense leading to offense. In the second half, the Clippers held the Pelicans to just 39 points, closing out their road trip with a convincing victory over a team that had won five of their last seven prior to Friday.“Our defense in the second half is why we won,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “Offensively, it’s clear. When we play defense, we score a lot of points.”The Clippers didn’t have a lot of transition tries in the second half, converting on their only two, but the defense ignited the team’s pace and passing.With the Clippers getting stops, the ball swung from player to player, as the Clippers searched for the best possible shot. Sometimes, it was a Luc Mbah a Moute 3 (15 points), sometimes it was Crawford wide open with the defense collapsed on Griffin.Two of the Clippers’ five turnovers in the second half came from over-passing, including one where Jordan got caught standing in the paint when his teammates just kept passing.“When you become a defensive team with that mindset, you don’t want to take bad shots because you know how hard you had to work defensive to get the darn ball,” Rivers said. “I think that’s what translates into extra passes. ‘Don’t come down and jack a bad shot –we just worked 23 seconds to get the ball. Don’t come down and take a bad shot.’”Rivers said he thinks his team understands that, but he needs them to understand something else, too. It was great that the Clippers rallied to finish their season-long trip 3-3 with back-to-back wins. But, .500 isn’t the standard he wants this team to live up to.“I think we’re better than that. I don’t think we should go .500 on a road trip. I think we should be better than that.“…We’re asking a lot, but if you want to be special, you’ve got ask a lot.”center_img Somehow, after six games in six cities, the Clippers had plenty of it Friday night, out-running the Pelicans 114-96 to finish the trip .500.The bench howled for the forced turnovers. The players celebrated the fruits of their ball movement, nailing big 3-point shot after 3-point shot. And, they celebrated leaving the building, as they started their trip back home for the first time in nearly two weeks.The 24-second violation came midway through the third quarter with Griffin, the most rested Clipper, providing the energy on offense. As the lead stretched from three to 15, he scored 11 of his team’s points during a 17-5 run that put the Pelicans at a comfortable distance.Griffin out-scored Davis 27 to 21, to go with 10 rebounds and four assists. Jamal Crawford scored 21 off the Clipper bench, and Chris Paul nearly had his second triple-double in three games, finishing with 17 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds.“I thought the (Clippers) controlled the game,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said.last_img read more
