We’ve barely recovered from Roubaix and we’re straight into Ardennes week with some Breton racing thrown in for good measure. We have Quick-Step hair, Viking spirit, and piglets for everyone in this edition of Tweets of the Week!
During a QuickStep presser for Amstel Gold, Julian Alaphilippe was looking more and more French by the minute – with his curated facial hair and floppy quiff, he could play D’Artagnan in any remake of The Three Musketeers – while Jungels, BOB JUNGELS maintained his perfectly coiffed RAF airman look.
Some Quick-Step kisses – but none on the podium
Here at VeloVoices, we love a good nickname. From now on, Ardennes week begins with the Hamster Gold Race.
@JournalVelo was driving the Tweetmobile on Sunday – and seemed to be trolling Midge!
It’s the laugh at the start of this that really makes it … ever so slightly creepy
Michael Valgren has well and truly stepped up this season – and has been picking up a lot of fans along the way.
Coming off his Roubaix win, Sagan had nothing to prove and his riding style became more nonchalant than usual – if that’s even possible.
True hamster spirit …
Piglets for all!
It was also Tro-Bro Leon on Sunday – one of the coolest races in the calendar.
Of course, a conversation about TroBro is never complete without a contribution by a VeloVoices favourite, Dan Craven
In the Gruppetto
Just sittin’ by the campfire, singin’ cowboy songs
Giro Fever? Meh, not so much
Wonder if there’s a clause in that contract …
File under: Blame David Millar
Andre Greipel wouldn’t put up with any of that sportscar nonsense
Congratulations to the Contadors on their new arrival!
