Here are our top picked tweets from the last week in the world of cycling

As we all know, 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 Dries Devenyns, Alex Dowsett and Alex Howes.

1. Not a bad 20-minute effort from Alex Dowsett in the Tirreno-Adriatico team time trial.

2. Might miss out on an Oscar, Brad, but it’s certainly BAFTA-worthy.

3. Hands up if you do this? *raises hand*

4. A niche joke after the cancellation of stage three of Paris-Nice because of snow, but a good one if you know your 80s Italian skiers.

5. Dan Martin has a practical solution to the weather issues at this time of year.

6. It’s official: Cannondale riders are tougher than Trek-Segafredo riders…

7. Not much aerodynamic advantage for Connor Dunne here.

8. Winner: Luke Rowe.

9. We’ve shown you this before, but it’s still pretty remarkable.

10. Jens Voigt is in San Francisco and his first stop was In-n-Out Burger, but did he go for the secret menu?

11.  We don’t often feature BMX on this site, but it’s Liam Phillips’s birthday today and this is a really good video.
