Vuelta Tweets of the Week: Mudbaths and Movistar

We’re just into our second week of Vuelta 2019 – so why not have a look at the crazy first week. We had mudbaths and unfeasibly large bikes; new guys winning, conti teams in red; plus our favourite dysfunctional family, Movistar. It’s Vuelta TWEETS OF THE WEEK !

Wildcards go wild!

The Vuelta always throws up something unexpected – this edition, it’s the wildcards that are getting all the attention. And rightly so!

Quite the poet, is Barbie …

Tattoo you
