Only three days into the Vuelta … blimey, it’s been a bit dull, but we’ve trawled through the Twitterstream to pick out a few choice tweets to document the first weekend.
It was an emotional final week of Vuelta 2017 – tears of joy for Chris Froome who did the Tour/Vuelta double, tears of both sadness and joy as Alberto Contador crossed the line solo at Angliru. But we also have singing – lots of singing, chanting – lots of chanting, a little bit of rage and fans a go-go. It’s our final Vuelta Tweets of the Week …
It was an odd week at the Vuelta – a lot of drama but not the big stages we were hoping for. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a big Vuelta Tweets of the Week – because we do! We have a new bromance, courtesy of Quick-Step, Aqua Blue resilience, Baby Blackbird without regrets, and Spartacus finishes his first triathlon.
