Well the Tour de France and Giro Rosa are over for another year.

Both races made it to the end without any major incident, despite the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

But in this very bizarre year, there's no rest for the athletes with the World Championships currently underway, the Giro d'Italia around the corner and the Classics just a few weeks away.

As a distraction from the pressure of a condensed season, plenty of pros have taken to social media.

Here are just a few of our favourites tweets from the last week:
