Road racing is BACK babyyyy.
Strade Bianche, Paris-Nice, Tirreno-Adriatico. You wait ages for a WorldTour race and then three come along at once.
And with that comes a deluge of Good Tweets™. With something as whimsical as cycling the tweets often provide much needed escape from the collective death spiral of our souls caused by spending an inordinate number of hours plugged into twitter dot com.
And let's face it, none of us are going to log off any time soon, so let's just enjoy the memes of Oprah Winfrey reacting to the nail-biting finish to the 2020 Giro d'Italia and Egan Bernal being pushed along at the back of the bunch whilst relieving himself.
1. I've never had any difficulty trying to listen while eating but then again I'm not a former world time trial champion
2. The 2020 Giro was definitely the hook needed to get Oprah back into cycling - Dr Freeman interview up next?
3. Stay tuned for the next EF Gone Racing featuring Jonathan Vaughters' uncle Willy from Nebraska
4. When he retires I really hope Mads Pedersen gets the gig sitting on the back of the motorbike for Eurosport, the man is electric
5. Gwan John
6. Social media is often accused of obscuring reality, making things seem better than they are. That does not apply to this video.
7. There's someone over in Belgium not being paid enough to photoshop these memes. Anyone for a 'pay Belgian cycling meme specialists footballer's wages' campaign?
8. Part one of Ineos urination tweets of the week...
9. The only ship that doesn't sink is a friendship
10. Chris Froome hikes up a volcano on his rest day. We are not the same
We’ll be back in seven days with more pure fuego tweets of the week.
Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races. I'm 6'0", 26 years old, have a strong hairline and have an adequate amount of savings for someone my age. I'm very single at the minute so if you know anyone, hit me up.
Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab, reporting about students evacuating their bowels on nightclub dancefloors and consecrating their love on lecture hall floors. I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).
I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
