Tour Tweets of the Week 2022 : All the feels and some immodest riding

Another bonkers week at the Tour de France – and we have it all and then some. From the always amazing Gruber galleries to the emotion-choked interviews and L’Equipe front pages to Pog amis, Rog love and Wout express. 

Gruber galleries

Always always marvellous

The motion and the emotion

First up, THAT stage – where Jumbo were all about the attacking and Pog seemed to be up for the challenge. Until he wasn’t and we saw that he might be human after all.

Don’t count your chickens …

No wonder Jonas hugged the lion on the podium … this is what he said about it the morning of the stage that was …

‘Mom, I won you some blooms!’ Mads Pedersen is all that.

I’m not having any of this crap about Roglic being a quitter, throwing a hissy, not being a team player. None of it.

Riding immodestly

We have a lot of examples of smoooooooth riding in the peloton, of those guys who are just downright elegant on a bike. Alexander Kristoff probably wouldn’t win any awards in that category, but he rides with everything he’s got.

Meanwhile, WvA needed some air …

Best buds

Looks like Pog is best buds with just about everyone!

Love this – the WvA/Vingegaard bromance started at last year’s Tour and is still blossoming.
