Tweets of the Week: The final Monument, farewells and seasonal stats

The season is winding down rather quickly now. It was Il Lombardia weekend, the last Monument of the season (and the most scenic). But the tweets were falling like autumn leaves …

A fine autumnal Trek

There’s a chill in the air – and Trek come into their own with a Monument win for Bauke Mollema.

There’s a lot of love in that look

Mopping up the Monument tweets

Pierre Latour revved up the end of the race with constant attacks

#FreeLanda has finally been accomplished … until next year when he isn’t happy at Bahrain-Merida. It’ll be an evergreen hashtag

Would have loved PhilGil to win Il Lombardia but that was not to be.

Hanging up their wheels

It’s farewell to Laurens Ten Dam

And Lars Bak

And Steve Morabito 

And Simon Spilak

And Russell Downing

And Maxime Monfort

With no word of a new signing after he parted ways with Arkea, I wonder if this is goodbye to Andre Greipel

And a very special VeloVoices favourite, Ruben Plaza – whose name looms large in the Tosh Van Der Sande Detective series

It’s also a sad goodbye to pro-conti team Roompot Charles which has had to fold.

Counting up the season

The Gruppetto

Jelle Wallays takes the win for Paris Tours.

What does next season have in store?

This is good news. Very good news.

If you can imagine it, it can happen. Giulio Ciccone doing some real visualisation

Bikes change lives. In all kinds of ways.
