The stage after a rest day often throws up a surprise (not least the Covid +s) and that’s exactly what happened on today’s hilly Stage 10 in the Giro d’Italia. In his maiden Giro, Peter Sagan (Bora) soloed to his long-awaited first victory of the season after going in the day’s breakaway, and holding off the chase from the GC contenders. Brendan McNulty (UAE) was runner-up while race leader Joao Almeida (DSQ) nicked a cheeky four bonus seconds on his rivals to round out the podium.
This week, our title is a bit of a misnomer, as there’s not that much Giro d’Italia this week, but boy, Tweets is still packed full of goodness! We have Mark Cavendish, imaginary jerseys, and a feisty gruppetto featuring Wout Van Aert, Peter Sagan, muppets, Lachlan Morton and an hour-long Quickstep Tour de France 2020 film. Sit back and enjoy
It feels as though the weird is accelerating week by week – but we capture it all here. We have Etna blowing the Giro apart, Alaphilippe’s crazy Liege, Roglic’s quiet drink, and there are ducks *everywhere*. Go on – take a cheeky break from your home office prison and break free with TWEETS OF THE WEEK
