Tweets of the Week 2022 : History with a dash of panache

There was a lot of racing this past week, but only one story. Intermarche-Wanty-Goubert’s Biniam Girmay made history by sprinting to victory after 250km of Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday. Significant in so many ways, not least that it was one of the most positive timelines after a race we’ve seen in a long time. It’s an extra-special Tweets of the Week!

Glorious Girmay

You gotta love guys in cars shouting! I think we were all shouting at the end of Gent-Wevelgem, that sprint!

It was the way that Girmay won the race – with power, guts, panache – that made it even more special.

Some great Gruber insta galleries here … make sure you click through the whole series. Great photos as ever.

This quote from Xylon Van Eyck really says it all and still gives me goosebumps.


For anyone wondering how far Girmay could go? 12th at MSR, 5th at E3 … can’t wait to see what he can do in the Giro!

So this happened on Friday!

If this is what happens when ‘inexperienced on cobbles’, next spring is going to be wild!
