We’ve seen some unexpected moments on cycling social media in the last week.

Once again we’ve trawled through the social feeds of the cycling stars to bring you the best content – check it out below.

With the transfer market in cycling starting to heat up, we needed a new method of talent identification to take on the big budget teams: Meet Norman The Dog. Despite the “howling” protests of WADA, UCI, and other teams, Norman was found to have a natural 175 Vo2 Max. ‪Greg LeMutt condemned such a move, saying “There is no way any creature has a Vo2 Max higher than mine.” UCI President, David LaPommerian was quoted as saying “We are highly suspicious of a bike rider like this. Fortunately, however, it will be quite easy to take a hair sample for FURther analyses.”‬ WADA, World Anti Dog Agency, quickly barked about the unfair advantage, urging “we need to get this sort of cheating on a leash.” But for @efprocycling, there will be no second place at this year’s #TdF. #victory #worldbicycleday #bicycleday #trembleinfearineos
