Here we are again, my friends. If we were in a non-lockdown world, we would be enjoying the Giro d’Italia right now. However, May might be Giro-less but Tweets of the Week is full of Italian flavour. We also have anonymous Froome family members taking Ineos to task, freedom rides and retired sweatpants
This classic Tour de France dress rehearsal was a largely sodden, slow burner, only coming alight on the weekend’s short, sharp mountain stages after a mid-way time-trial had exposed the GC contenders. Astana’s Jakob Fuglsang seized the leader’s jersey with a late attack on stage 7, which he easily retained on the final stage, despite a handful of riders being within a minute of him. The podium was rounded out by runner-up Tejay van Garderen (EF Education First) and third-placed Emanuel Buchmann (BORA-hansgrohe) who both survived the weather-related culling of GC contenders.
We’ve certainly had some ‘what the heck’ moments during the action-packed racing this year. Here’s some moments that left the VeloVoices jaws on the floor. Let us know yours in the comments and VOTE NOW!
