Ten tweets that caught our eye this week from the world of cycling

Cyclists and Twitter is often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in and around the professional peloton. Here are some of the tweets that caught our eye this week, including ones from Geraint Thomas, Mike Cuming and Peter Kennaugh.

1. Frank Schleck: always laughing.

2. Trek Factory Racing took a stuffed sheep with them on the Tour de France and it seems like they’ve now increased their menagerie, if this tweet by Fabian Cancellara is anything to go by.

3. Peter Sagan is getting used to his results now.

4. Most of Mark Renshaw’s tweets are incredibly dull and I can’t work out if this is another one, or one steeped in contempt.

5. Mike Cuming chucks in a football gag.

6. Think before you tat, guys. That’s Alex Dowsett‘s advice.

7. Nico Roche thinks Geraint Thomas is a cheapskate.
