The first full week of the Giro 2018 certainly got the Twittersphere frisky. But it wasn’t all about Italy – we had Dunkirk AND California as well! There were so many good tweets, I’m letting them speak for themselves, quite frankly. Enjoy!
The slopes of Mount Etna hosted the first summit finish of this year’s Giro d’Italia and it really shook things up with an intriguing and dramatic day of racing. Mitchelton-Scott dominated with Esteban Chaves winning the stage, coming across the finish line just in front of his teammate Simon Yates, who relieved Rohan Dennis of the maglia rosa.
Races, races everywhere! The season is really kicking into gear now – and we have the first of probably a thousand Alejandro Valverde victories. We also saw the long-awaited return to victory of the Little Kangaroo, Esteban Chaves. We also have some dodgy pox, some fabulous cobbley posters, Captain America, the Wolfpack and the should he/shouldn’t he debate. All here, all now.
