It’s #TDF2022 and the twitterstream was packed full of cycling goodies. From #RookieRecap to #letourdepoupees, the #couchpeloton is picking up where they left off in the Giro. We also have all the magnificence of Magnus, some shocking chin socks and evidence that Devo were WAY ahead of their time. It’s all here – it’s TOUR TWEETS OF THE WEEK!
It was an emotional rollercoaster of a week – from Thibaut Pinot being pipped at the finish one day to taking a stage win the next day in Tour of the Alps to Romain Bardet sacrificing his chances at LBL to help a seriously injured Julian Alaphilippe. We also have the newest LBL victor and an Ardennes legend who has ridden his final spring classic. Plus a few old friends in the gruppetto. Go!
There was a lot of racing this past week, but only one story. Intermarche-Wanty-Goubert’s Biniam Girmay made history by sprinting to victory after 250km of Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday. Significant in so many ways, not least that it was one of the most positive timelines after a race we’ve seen in a long time. It’s an extra-special Tweets of the Week!
