Strewth! Stage 5 of Tour de France 2023 and he’s only gone and done it. Jai Hindley (BORA-Hansgrohe) sneaks into the break of the day like a ninja warrior, makes all the right moves as the break ebbs and flows and then attacks like the Giro winner he is to take his first Tour de France victory AND THE MAILLOT JAUNE. I couldn’t be more delighted for him, his team and the brilliant Aussie fans of the #couchpeloton. Enjoy your moment of joy, guys.
You can say this Tour de France was lopsided, or slightly boring in places, but one thing you can’t say is that it didn’t have any heart. There were tears and hugs at almost every stage and Paris was no different. Except it had babies to be kissed as well! This last Tour Tweets of the Week for 2021 is filled with joy, laughs, creativity, #couchpeloton and a celebration that we were all in it together. Enjoy!
