Vuelta Tweets of the Week: Style, dodgy hotel rooms and a fond farewell

We’re in the red with Vuelta Tweets of the Week! It’ll be short but ever so sweet – and a little poignant!

It seems everyone is being called Dutch – Tom Boonen was called a Dutch rider by the BBC after the Ride London race. Oh, and he was also called Tim. At least Warren Barguil has his name right!

Cillian Kelly is quick with a K – or four.

Farewell, Lucien

He spent every summer in a little camper van, following the Tour and handing out tiny coca-colas to riders. And the riders loved him for it. We need more fans to follow in his footsteps.
