Vuelta Tweets of the Week: Baby Blackbird, Captain America and a Shark

It’s the first of our 2017 Vuelta Tweets of the Week – from Baby Blackbird to Captain America with a Shark and a Bubble in between. We’ve already got a pretty big gruppetto as well. So let’s Vamos!

Baby Blackbird’s final start

QuickStep ride like the wind

Yves Lampaert took the stage 2 sprint and with the hard riding in the last two kilometres giving them the gaps, he’s in the red tonight!

Oooh, and I have to wonder …

The Shark salute

The Tejay bubble

Captain America

Loving Aqua Blue‘s white jersey kit for the Vuelta (surprisingly none of the Tour teams kept their white jerseys) and Larry Warbasse looking absolutely amazing in his US nat champ kit. Photographer Karen Edwards is with the Aqua Blue team at the Vuelta and her photographs are absolutely fantastic!

I love pictures of little kids getting some souvenirs from the riders.

Bora having some fun …


The Gruppetto

I bet Richie Porte is livid that he only had a camper van when he could have had an expandable Death Star

The time trial arena!


Stage 2 was a dizzying display of road furniture and roundabouts

Jungels! BOB JUNGELS!!

It’s looking like Nico is taking hair styling tips from Zdenek Stybar and Jungels BOB JUNGELS! 

A wise decision on the part of Coquard, I think.

The cheeky smile of our beloved Chaves is always great to see. Let’s hope he and the Yates brothers bring some fireworks to the Vuelta

Or is it Yates x 2? Les Yates?

Lachlan Morton always has something to say for himself – his daily diary will be really interesting …

Some people just don’t like Bonnie Tyler!

The world of sporting commentary isn’t all glamour, you know, kids!

Dan Martin quick steps no more in 2018

One of the best tweets of the week – subtle. Funny.

The last word
