Oh, it was *quite* a week at the Giro d’Italia. We had a pink-clad race leader who didn’t believe in racing the status quo, a returning champion who pitched a hissy on the chase, a dinosaur punch-up – it was all happening on the roads of Italy. Except when it was happening on the highways of California … Oh, what the hell – let’s face it – it’s always happening here in Tweets of the Week.
Beautiful scenery, exciting racing, dig-deep victories and the maglia rosa racing for every second he can get. If you’ve missed anything on the second week of the Giro, we’ve got you covered.

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) delivered an aggressive masterclass taking the stage win and solidifying his place at the top of the GC. Every other rider was an also-ran.
