Tweets of the week: Jeremy Clarkson on a Lotus and a sleeveless Orlando Bloom

Maybe the oddest cycling the world

This week we've got some really quite spectacular cycling images of Jeremy Clarkson huffing a dart while riding a Lotus time trial bike in a leather jacket and jeans, which just about pips Orlando Bloom's get up.

However, undoubtedly the best tweet of the week is the one from Deceuninck - Quick-Step telling us that Fabio Jakobsen had been brought out of his coma by doctors. A crucial step in what will be a long recovery. We wish Fabio and those close to him well, forza Fabio!

1. When they talk about how much aerodynamics has improved over the years, this is what they're talking about, right?

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.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and 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.
