We have tiny riders, virtual riders, contractual riders specifying *no brown M&Ms*! Okay, one of those is a lie … We’re checking in on the pastoral idyll that is Thibaut Pinot‘s farm (baby goats and not so baby goats!), take a trip in Mr Peabody’s Wayback Machine (including the hot pink of T-Mobile), quarantine stories and some cycling calendar speculation (because that’s all it can be at the moment). Yes, it’s TWEETS OF THE WEEK (well, Tweets of the Fortnight to get technical, but it’s not nearly as catchy) … Enjoy!
Time in lockdown just seems to go fast, slow, stop, start. Here we go back in history, we look into the future, and just generally find Tweets to cheer us up, including life on the farm with Thibaut Pinot (goats), Guillaume Martin (donkeys … and some masonry work), and Yves Lampaert on a giant tractor. Also featured: Rohan Dennis takes the car out for a spin (and will probably get fined) while Geraint Thomas makes the most of his garage (and raises serious cash for the NHS). Settle back and enjoy!
This week, we had cancelled races, teams quarantined and teams who took themselves out of races. But we did have some racing – in the rain a lot of the time – but we *always* have robust discussions on Twitter, no matter what. We also end the column with a tribute to Nicolas Portal.
