Tweets of the Week 2022 : Bollard dodging, Trident wielding, Wout powered drama

It was a Slovenian week of stage races, with Tadej Pogacar taking the Tirreno Trident home (maybe to put in his garden?) and Primoz Roglic taking the sunburst trophy from Paris-Nice. We had final stage drama, long solos, Blue Man impersonations and a lot of fan interaction. It’s another Tweets of the Week!

ParisNice on the rivet

It was all kicking off at Paris-Nice this year. Last year’s final stage of Paris-Nice started to look like it was going to repeat itself on Sunday, as Simon Yates attacked on the final climb and was a handful of seconds to virtual yellow.

Primoz Roglic was riding a bit more immodestly than usual (you can never tell by his face if he’s suffering, only how he rides), but he had the mighty Wout van Aert with him the whole way and the race leader’s jersey was saved.

Simon Yates won the stage, all in bright blue

This freaks me out every time I see it.

If in doubt, ask Wout

Primoz Roglic has now won both Tirreno-Adriatico and Paris-Nice. I do always wonder where riders put trophies like this.

From Saturday’s stage and Lev gets another lion …

I’ll just put this here … When the Yates’ were pupsย 

Love is in the air

I think we can officially call this a bromance. But then, other than Remco, what rider doesn’t have a crush on WvA?

But new bromances happen all the time in cycling: this week, guys with no teammates left, banding together.

Italian fait accompli

Tadej Pogacar was in the race. Tadej Pogacar won the race. In stage 6, he stamped his authority.

What about Pog’s plans for next month?

The Gruppetto

Feeling peckish?

We have heroes …

‘such is my keenness’
