Tweets of the Week: Geraint Thomas mistaken for Froome and Tiffany Cromwell teaches Valtteri Bottas a few things

The wonderful world of cycling Twitter has offered up more gems

Thankfully the cycling world is returning to normal.

The pros are stepping up their training and we've even had some pretty huge transfer news, with Chris Froome heading to Israel Start-Up Nation.

That has offered up plenty of fuel for the Twitter fire in the cycling world, with riders offering insights into their lives (and minds) on social media.

Here are a few of our favourite moments from the last week:

1. Did anything big happen with Dowsett's Start-Up Nation team this week? We can't think of anything

2. A slightly rude baby announcement from Van Aert?

4. Pretty sure Nibali is faster uphill than that machine
