Another week of racing, another week of hot tweets dealing with the burning issues of the day. We have Jack Bobridge’s (unsuccessful) hour attempt, Bernie‘s Luca-like beardage, Fabs and the Force and Mick Jagger‘s continuing solo tour of lonely places. Oleg‘s in the gruppetto with Basso, as is the Velvet Samurai and Katusha trick cyclists.
“Don’t do it. Save yourself!”
I was wondering that little yellow ring was in Bobridge’s nose. Not up with what the kids are doing these days, I thought maybe this was some sort of fashion statement. Apparently not. It’s to help the breathing (it does something like hold the nostrils open). So not unlike those stacks of nasal strips that the guys wear.
It’s all about the pacing, kids.
There are calls for Jack to just get back on that bike and try it again this week. Not sure he can be convinced. The lovely Tom Varney, however, thinks that it’s good that he didn’t break the record.
Bernie’s got a new set of whiskers
…And the bearded ladies are not happy about it.
The Force is strong in Fabs
Spartacus is going over the plan with his teammates – Panache thinks they look like stormtroopers.
Ant took that idea and ran with it.
“These are not the droids you’re looking for…”
Unfortunately, it seems the Force isn’t strong enough to stop them punishing Fabs during training by making him watch this!?!
…that leads to … seriously, where the hell IS Mick Jagger these days? He seems to be posting up lonely pictures of him in deserted places. Is he lost? I think he might be. Someone go find him and get him to an airport lounge!
During all this lonely wandering, looks like his friends have posted up their favourite album covers.
Rigo: Songs for Young Lovers
Rigo: The Christmas Album
Rigo Sings the Psychedelic Furs Songbook
Don’t try this at home, kids!
Marianne Vos congratulating Pauline Ferrand-Prevot on her win at the Cyclocross World Championships. We need more of this spirit, I think.
I’m unsure as to what to say to this. What? The? …
They sure didn’t hide this news in a PDF in an obscure part of their website. Hey UCI, a new brand identity ain’t gonna solve any of your problems. None. Not. A. One.
Maple syrup birthday cake all round!
Tinkoff training camp. Bertie catches a lift, SuperSagan stretches an elastic band and Oleg is in town …
And so is the circus! Another one of those pictures that leaves me speechless.
Leader of the pack.
The Broomwagon shows no pity.
