Friday Feature Extra: Roxanne King’s Montreal photo-story

VeloEye Roxanne King made the trip from Michigan to Montreal last week to see our boys in the peloton race around the Canadian city at the GP Cycliste de Montreal. Here are her pictures from the day!

Here they come, ridin’ down the street, get the funniest looks from everyone they meet!

You know, we just don’t see enough of that cheeky Heinrich Haussler!

Funny, cruel, odd, personal … you get it all on Twitter. Each week, we’ll have a rundown of some of our favourite tweets. Here are the tweets for the week ending 18th March 2012.

Portraits of the peloton

I featured Kristof Ramon‘s twitpics a few weeks ago and anyone on our Facebook page knows that I often share his pics there as well. And why not? Kristof takes some of the most expressive portraits of peloton people with his use of black-and-white and Instagrams just deepening the beauty. Here are few of my favourites from this week.
