#SKYvOGE – behind the hashtag

Those who follow teams and riders on Twitter will probably have spotted the hashtag #SKYvOGE. Is it serious? How serious?

Sky vs Orica-GreenEdge

In the blue corner you have Team Sky, so often painted as robo-riders emerging from the Death Star team bus. In the ‘green’ corner you have those fair dinkum, happy-go-lucky Aussies from Orica-GreenEdge. That’s the way many observers see the two teams.

Well, in an effort to inject a bit of humour and offer an insight into the off-the-bike life and character of the riders on both squads, we should prepare ourselves for some video-based high-jinks with plenty of Twitter banter and that hashtag. A series of five video challenges featuring the riders and staff will be released in the weeks leading up to the Giro d’Italia.
