Tweets of the week: Khal Drogo's new Specialized, Matt Winston's speedbump mishap and Luke Rowe's lookalike

Here are a few of our favourite moments from cycling social media

If 2020 didn't have enough twists and turns already, it turns out Khal Drogo is a cycling fan.

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has been enjoying the new ultra-lightweight Specialized bike, although inexplicably he has about eight of them.

That's just one of the weird and wonderful moments from cycling social media over the last week.

We've also got Geraint Thomas reacting to the rest of the Giro and Giulio Ciccone on the mic.

Here are our favourite tweets from the last week:

1. Is Jason Momoa really strong, or is the new Specialized really light? Probably both
