Oh my goodness, but it has been a week of racing. And that means it was quite a week swimming in the Twitterstream. We have the fascination which was the Ronde, the Giro that finally caught fire and a lot of fun in the gruppetto. Jump in!
After last week’s Gent Wevelgem, it was a question as to whether (bitter) rivals Mathieu Van der Poel and Wout van Aert would cancel each other out in the run to the finish of the Tour of Flanders. It took the magic of the rainbow stripes to get them in the same break, but the magic wasn’t on Julian Alaphilippe‘s side as he hit a moto and left the race with some broken bones. But the rivals worked together, even if they rarely looked at each other, and went on the sprint for the line. MvdP took it by a whisker. I’ve not even attempted to write a coherent race review – it’s all about the reactions!
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
