Tweets of the Week 2019: Amusing, mystifying and disturbing

It’s the start of a new cycling season and therefore it’s the start of a new season of Tweets of the Week! The original is BACK (we started in January 2012 – how time flies!) and we’ve got a little treasure trove of tweets from EF All the Words, Katusha, Lotto-Soudal, Astana, QuickStep, to name a few, that amuse, mystify and, well, downright disturb.

It started off well …

Then it got a little … bolder

And it’s getting stranger and stranger …

“our leader of the gang, this is Jakob Fuglsang!” Don’t give up your day jobs, guys!

and scarier and scarier …

I can’t help thinking about the Dr Who episode in the Blitz – The Empty Child.

Luckily, Sunweb have full faces in real life – and the fans were relieved as they met them during Tour Down Under festivities

Deliveroo and slumber parties

There’s nothing like a muddy Zdenek to make us think … Roubaix is supposed to see rain this year #StybarForTheWin

We’re going to be seeing a lot of this in the coming season, I predict. One thing is definitely true – QuickStep sure know how to make those national jerseys sing

Deliveroo has its hands full

Boys do have slumber parties!

Meanwhile, over in Peter’s world

Still loving the hair … but definitely not the tache

Looks like the tache has caught on, unfortunately.

One day, this will be in a book of The Wise Words of Peter Sagan.

Loving the De Gendt 

Lotto-Soudal has always had the best official team pics and they do the tradition proud this year. Thomas De Gendt is put through his paces.

Seems odd to see Andre Greipel in anything other a Lotto-Soudal kit. Let’s hope that Arkea gets one of the remaining two wildcards for the Tour this year. It won’t be the same without him.

Unsure as to what is going on in this picture – looks like the cycling version of a cover of Smash Hits!
