Tweets of the week: Mark Cavendish, Lizzie Armitstead, Geraint Thomas and more

Here are the tweets that caught our eye from the last week in the world of cycling

As we all know, cyclists and Twitter is often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in and around the professional peloton. Here are some of the tweets that caught our eye this week, including ones from Ian Bibby, Alex Dowsett and Dan Craven.

1. It’s good to know that Mark Cavendish’s leadout man, Mark Renshaw, is fully house trained.

2. Geraint Thomas takes the old ‘compliment followed by a kick in the shins’ when congratulating Tom Dumoulin on his amazing Vuelta time trial.

3. Dan Craven is delusional at the African Games in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

4. Well, that’s another one to cross off the list…

5. Ian Bibby celebrates an important day.

6. Bad news…Philip Deignan is off the market…

7. Dan Lloyd’s audacious bet looks set to earn him a lot of money. If Dumoulin can just hold on

8. Frank Schleck was clearly not too happy about his ‘dinner’ at the Vuelta. In fact, those eggs are normal size, but everything else is MASSIVE!

9 & 10. The hotel rooms at the Tour of Britain are a bit pokey…
