It’s a ‘beasy’ time as we get ready for the first Grand Tour of the season starting on Friday. But that didn’t mean there wasn’t great racing last week. Today, we celebrate Thomas De Gendt in the Alps, dance with Dan Craven in Senegal and lament the sanitisation of Fabianese. Plus much much more … It’s a bumper crop of TWEETS OF THE WEEK
The Volta a Catalunya sometimes had more snow that it had show – and while the veteran Alejandro Valverde won overall, some young Colombians kept things interesting. It was a week-long stage race with no time trials (!) and none of the A-list sprinters in attendance (!!). I tell you, you will dream about weeks like this come the annual lap around France this summer… mark my words.
A brand new award to cover all those moments that left us laughing, enraged or just downright perplexed.
