Tweets of the Week: Tattoo of regret and Kittel kicks off (thank God!)

Funny, cruel, odd, personal … you get it all on Twitter. Each week, we’ll have a rundown of some of our favourite tweets. Here are the tweets for the week ending 28nd October 2012.

Tattoo You

There’s only one thing I’d like to say about this tattoo – what the hell gigantic part of Daniel’s body is this on? Bicep? Thigh? Back?

And while we’re on the subject of Lance

And here Johan Bruyneel actually sends a funny tweet – but I’m not sure he meant it to be funny. I wonder if he had gone to Coach 17, if Daniel would have shown him that tattoo on whatever part of the body it’s on…

God love an Argonaut

It’s hard being a cycling fan some days – sometimes you wonder where the hell you can turn for some sense. Well, thank God for that wonderful Argonaut, Marcel Kittel. He came charging into the Twitterstream with something to say – something that gave tired and fed-up cycling fans something to applaud.

Marcel’s teammate Koen de Kort is in Australia at the moment and embarking on a special project for November – yep, he’s growing a tache for Movember.

And who was that first donation? Guys, I put my money where my mouth is…

More riders speaking out (or not)

This is an interesting stream that started with Marcel Kittel and taken up by the rather dishy Ken Sommer, who, if you remember, was part of the Leopard Trek marketing team when it started (he jumped that ship long ago…).

I’m mad as hell and I’m not taking it anymore!

Do you all listen to the Velocast? If you don’t, you should! Scott and John have been putting out some great podcasts – they’re calling for revolution and they’re not mincing their words. Last week, Scott went off on one – well, he went off on one David Millar – which is really something to hear. That’s why Charlie Kibbe posted this.

And to close this week’s column, here is one of my 20 reasons to love cycling: Fabs‘ teeny tiny snow-covered house after a Rip van Winkle-type sleep…

And on that note, I’ll be back next week with more Tweets. Oh, and don’t forget to donate to Koen’s movember campaign! I just read today that he’s trying to rope Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb in as well so get your wallets out!
