It was a Monument weekend – the first of the season. It was Milan-SanRemo weekend and there was a shark circling … just in time for today’s TWEETS OF THE WEEK!
His Nibs for the win
It might be Tuesday but I have a feeling that there are a lot of Italian cycling fans who are still celebrating. The first Italian win in 12 years, a Grand Tour winner (all three GTs) taking on ‘the sprinter’s Monument’. And if that’s not enough, Vincenzo Nibali has completed the Italian triple crown – Giro d’Italia, Il Lombardia and Milan-SanRemo. The prosecco must have been flowing day and night!
A masterclass in use of emojis from Daniel Friebe.
With a palmares like Nibblets, there really is a case for him being one of the best riders of his generation. If he adds the rainbow stripes this year, that would seal it.
Give him an inch and he’ll take the trophy. Rookie error from the peloton on the Poggio
Not everyone was enamoured with the finish of the race, however.
While a straight-talking Peter Sagan brought anatomy into the mix.
Chocolate for little Emma and a Porsche for Daddy
It could have been a win from a bygone era
But what about Peter?
Perhaps Daniel Oss jinxed it with the practice Prosecco spray?
Meanwhile during the race, Sagan seemed to have a note to himself. There was some speculation as to what it might have said.
Sagan is quickly becoming the Eric Cantona of cycling. Seagulls, trawlers, sardines …
Whereas Eddy Merckx isn’t much of a poet. But he does talk sense.
Snark for the Shark
It wouldn’t be Tweets without a little good-natured snark from the tweeters
It’s a dangerous sport
He started out so optimistic
I cannot resist pictures of little kids excited about cycling
Now this will be interesting
We can all be more Larry now, with some AquaBlue casual wear! (Unfortunately, no Captain America replica kit. I’d even settle for just a teeshirt of it!)
