Another stage, another sprint, another nailed on Mathieu van der Poel lead out gives victory number two for Jasper Philipsen and his Alpecin-Deceuninck crew, but crikey it was impossible to find my moment of joy in the racing. Instead I’m going with some images that stole my breath when they popped up on my twitter feed this morning. I give you the utterly joyous Grubers.
It’s #TDF2022 and the twitterstream was packed full of cycling goodies. From #RookieRecap to #letourdepoupees, the #couchpeloton is picking up where they left off in the Giro. We also have all the magnificence of Magnus, some shocking chin socks and evidence that Devo were WAY ahead of their time. It’s all here – it’s TOUR TWEETS OF THE WEEK!
Part Two of our Giro d’Italia 2022 A to Z kicks off with Now or Never – riders who saw their chance and took it! And we finish up with Zero stage wins … teams who unfortunately didn’t come away with victory. We also have tears, tiny fans, one very quixotic rider and the best cycling photographers in the world.
