As the season winds down, I’ve decided to do a few Special Tweets of the Week. With the news that Marcel Kittel has severed his contract with Giant-Alpecin and signed to Etixx, I’ve decided to celebrate that golden time when he was the ArgoSunGod. We’ve opened the Tweets vault and here is what we found.
The rise of the ArgoSunGod
Who couldn’t love that bright smile, that playful attitude, that Argonaut white kit … and that hair. THAT HAIR! We go back to 2013 when he became the ArgoSunGod with his stint in yellow in the 100th edition of the Tour de France – and his first win on the Champs-Elysees.
Remember the first stage? The Orica bus?
And yet more victories! 2014 Tour de France, he took 4 stages, just as he did in 2013.
Kittel & Friends
Oh the famous sumo wrestling …
Must be the off-season – Tony Martin is eating doritos.
While we’re on the subject of Germans and Food, there was talk of an eating contest between Kittel and Andre Greipel. Not sure that ever actually happened…
The lovely Dan Wuori, of course, is well represented in the Tweets vault!
Even Cavendish wanted in on the game.
And fans …
And cuddling joeys
There’s a lot of hair in this one – and a sharp suit or two. Plus any number of montages.
Note: I did have a lot of tweets from this season, but they were quite simply full of disappointment and I just didn’t have the heart to put them in. Let us just hope that we will see LidlKittel get back to his winning ways next season and that he becomes a regular feature again in Tweets of the Week 2016.
