Giro Tweets of the Week 2022 : Wanty Corner, MvdP food crimes and Bora brilliance

I’ve been trying to get this posted for days but everything keeps shifting. So I’m just going to post now … We have Wanty Corner, a lot about Mathieu van der Poel – both good (love his attackity racing!) and horrifying, we applaud Bahrain and Bora’s takin’ it to Ineos and much more. Go, quick, before everything changes again!

Wanty Corner is the BEST corner

Midge has been singing Wanty’s praises for years now … and finally, the cycling world has caught up with her. What a Giro they’re having!

we’ll see if their prediction is right …

And it’s not just the Giro

They have a sofa on stage???

Take a bow, Mr van der Poel

The Giro spirit is strong in this one

He’s always trying to start a breakaway, get into a breakaway, break away from the breakaway … the man is not someone who likes to sit in the back of the peloton, biding his time. He’s ALL ACTION

Not even gigantic mountains of insane inclines can stop him from trying. An AMAZING photograph of MvdP in full flow – and judging from Jered’s post, it was as much a struggle for him to do his job as it was for MvdP to get up those mountains. I hope this doesn’t deter the Grubers from photographing grand tours going forward, Far and away, they are the BEST.

But his food choices are more than a bit dodgy

(Translation: If they forgot to put olives on your pizza again)

Au revoir, Bardet

This feels so long ago now, but it’s still heartbreaking

and farewell, Joao Almeida. What a shame. He lost a minute on the previous stage, losing his place on the podium, but he’s been so tenacious and unflappable, I didn’t expect him to take that defeat lying down. Now we’ll never know …

Bahrain v Ineos v Bora

It’s all up to Mikel Landa, Richard Carapaz and Jai Hindley now … and their teams.

What’s Billy up to?


Meanwhile, post-Sagan Bora are going hell for leather and it’s MARVELLOUS!
