Tweets of the Week 2019: The Dutch are lit … and other tales

The cobbles are over, the Ardennes are on. This year’s Amstel Gold has gone down in legend already. And the tweets were not backward in coming forward about the man who won it.

Give him an inch …

There was some looking around and dawdling up front with Alaphilippe and Fuglsang. And then Mathieu van der Poel happened … and the rest was hysteria. If you were wondering about the timings … 15km in 40secs …

And the Dutch are lit!

Surely InnerRing never makes a mistake!

The best ever?

Looks like the Dutchman might be on some shopping lists

Out on the farm

Monday was the dusty beauty of TroBroLeon

He obviously doesn’t know how to cuddle a piglet – neither of them look particularly comfortable with this, do they?

Not everyone who likes this race is a hipster, by the way.

The Gruppetto

One has to wonder why Alex Dowsett is sitting there in a suit of armour. The cat doesn’t look too impressed.

Steep? There’s an easy way to train for that …

Good to see Cav in the thick of a Turkish sprint … and smiling.

Amstel wasn’t the only race MvdP took in this Tweets week. He also took Brabantse Pijl

But that time Julian Alaphilippe was on the podium, not fourth …

Ring-a-ding-ding

The top 3 seem to be hogging all the limelight so far this season.

Double-denim only looks good on Hinault (don’t try this at home!)

The last word
