Giro Tweets of the Week: Climbing, sprinting, barging … and a cherubic smile

The first full week of the Giro 2018 certainly got the Twittersphere frisky. But it wasn’t all about Italy – we had Dunkirk AND California as well! There were so many good tweets, I’m letting them speak for themselves, quite frankly. Enjoy!

Climbs and then some

Isolated. Riding like a man who’s been at the pub too long. Losing time by the truckloads. And having a contretemp with George Bennett. Just the first week of the Giro for Chris ‘£1m appearance fee’ Froome

Is he a tiger? A wolf? How many animals will be used to describe Fernando Gaviria this season?

But Fernando wasn’t the only sprinter who was making some noise. Andre Greipel took a solo win at the Four Days of Dunkerque. So great to have him back after his injury …

Ireland went crazy for Sam Bennett‘s Giro stage win last week – front page news!

I say, I say

Cyclists – and fans and pundits – say the darndest things!

The Gruppetto

The Juan and only …

Grande Flecha.. . . #giroditalia #inhetwiel #giro101

Cheeky chappy who conquers mountains

The last word
