Tweets of the Week: Team Grumpy Cat and a whole lotta roos

This week – of course – has the obligatory photos of Tour Down Under riders cuddling roos and handling snakes, but we also have boys with great hair, Team Grumpy Cat and so much more!

New jerseys …

BoBo gets a present! There was a tweet going around this morning (Monday morning) that young Jack is 150/1 to win TDU – which I think is rather churlish of the bookies.

I suppose if you’re aggressive, your hair takes quite a bashing (especially in those helmets), but couldn’t they have just given the guys a little sachet of shampoo and maybe put on a little raging figurine on the trophy instead?

I have to say, Dani King‘s KOM (surely that should be QOM?) jersey is absolutely lovely!

Is it a prologue? Is it a criterium? Does it matter?

And after the sprint, a special treat for the Trek boys. A kiddie pool filled with ice! Nice!

While the Wiggle High 5 team get to sit with Jens. He’s a charmer …

I love this picture. I bet we see that little girl in the peloton in a few years with a role model like Nettie.

Grumpy Cat, Grumpy Cat, it’s not your fault!

First of all, what is the deal with their hair???? Second, what is the deal with that kit!!!!

I’m really unsure about this kit. At first I thought it was reminiscent of the great Cervelo Test Team but now … the green is really putting me off. And where’s the little hand of Qhubeka?

Great hair, GREAT hair from the ArgoSunGod. Looks like Kittel is getting back to his cheerful self. You can always tell by the hair.

And now a random set of tweets around Mathieu Van Der Poel, the new cyclo-cross champ.


I love this picture. “I did it, Granddad!”


Those are some sunnies they got there.

This should really be a caption competition, shouldn’t it?

Congrats to the lovely Manuel Quinziato – how he gets time to do a law degree when he’s captaining the BMC boys all year! Multi-tasker!

Okay, ArgoSunGod had some great hair but Peter Sagan has definitely got some game when it comes to the do.

Now that’s an uncomfortable spelling mistake … I’m concerned about what that mapping is *really* of.
