Giro Tweets of the Week : Crazy Giro hijinx, farm-track fun and sockless lunacy

We are packed, PACKED with Giro goodness, plus farm-track fun with Tro-Bro Leon. We have GC intermediate sprints! We have cats predicting stage wins! We have Caleb Ewan controversy! We have otters with pockets! We have sockless commentators!! And so much more …

When you’ve got time on your hands during the race

This is, apparently, Gannazilla …

There’s surely a Seinfeld gif for every stage …

Stage 7 and Stage 8 – two extremes in gif form. (Belinda’s gif game is really quite spectacular)

There were a few deluges during the stages last week …

Stage 10’s winner – it was Peter Sagan, of course. The cat wins!


Caleb Ewan climbed into the team car halfway through stage 9. There was speculation as to why that day, as he was wearing the maglia ciclamino, until he showed his swollen knee. But then it erupted with Eddy and Alex Merckx talkin’ all big and bad in the papers. Why?

Will Tim Merlier face the Merckx wrath?

Stars in the ascendent

The riders who made their mark this week

Stage 8 winner – Victor Lafay brings it home for Cofidis

Attila in pink – for awhile.

No dreams crushed here … Gino Mader had no one behind him!

We are quickly becoming huge Gino Mader fans! Sense of humour, engaging with fans – love it!

Bernal v Evenepoel … ready to rumble! Bernal, in the maglia rosa, and Evenepoel went for a few seconds.

King Kelly has been unbelievably entertaining – and not mincing his words – during this Giro. And long may it continue … hopefully with Adam Blythe there as well.

This has nothing to do with the Giro but it was my favourite victory of the week

Dreams crushed!

Marc Soler is never going to be able to slip away …

Fernando Gaviria wanted to stir things up. He did, but not the way he wanted.

For about £10.

Tro-Bro Leon

Need I say more?

As soon as Connor Swift sat up, Twitter was abuzz with … ‘did he just do an Alaphilippe?’ Looked pretty close – have they not learned!?!

Secret socks

What is it with cycling fans and socks? (I find the jeggings much more disturbing than the ‘no socks’ fashion). Orla takes it all in her stride.

I, for one, am never upset about Orla’s wardrobe choice. Only Brad’s.

I wonder if this guy is wearing socks …

The last word
