Tweets of the Week: SuperSagan, Angryphilippe and bittersweet memories

Two stage races run simultaneously means one thing: a bumper crop of TWEETS. We have sprinting magic, solo wins, exhausted riders, elated victories and a lot of the Wolfpack …


In Monday’s sprint stage, the lion of the peloton is still roaring – although he might actually be the modern equivalent of a Centaur

While the ArgoSunGod made a mockery of Kirby’s commentary to take his second stage

Sunday saw Adam Yates matching his brother’s victory in Paris-Nice on Saturday. Or was it a praying mantis?

G just can’t catch a break sometimes – the worst time for a tangled chain and the world’s slowest bike change on Saturday.

While Michal Kwiatkowski had his mechanical early enough to make sure he put himself in the perfect position to take the leader’s jersey on Sunday

Meanwhile … somewhere in Europe, Mikel Landa‘s win got someone thinking

On Sunday, the race organisers put on touching tribute to Michele Scarponi – the riders responded in kind

Paris-Not So Nice …

It was a tough Paris-Nice – the peloton had illness running through it, rain and not a lot of sunshine on the Cote d’Azur. But that didn’t stop the great racing.

A mild-mannered Dries Devenyns – love the bookworm specs

When Izaguirres collide  (video in this link)

Just me or does Marc Soler look like G’s kid brother?

Julian Alaphilippe does. not. give. up.

Jerseys galore for Lotto-Soudal 

The Gruppetto

Paris-Nice? Or Strade Bianche?

Cleaner than a clean thing from Clean Town

This should have been in last week’s Tweets, but I don’t care! Jungels BOB JUNGELS v Angryphilippe 

PhilGil getting those legs warmed up for the Classics

Wishing Gaviria the speediest of recoveries! We want to see him in the Grand Tours!


Just me or does Alex Dowsett bear a striking resemblance to The Rocket?

Not sure whose legs these are but … gosh

The last word
