Tweets of the week: Alberto Contador, Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and more

Just another very normal week in the world of cycling

Alberto Contador and Chris Froome (Twitter)

On a week when the general election in the UK set fire to Twitter, the cycling side of social media seemed relatively normal.

And that includes footage of Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck racing each other on miniature bikes (no surprise who wins), Bradley Wiggins becoming a football ultra, and archive footage of Chris Froome on translation duties as a domestique for a sprinter during his Barloworld days.

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.
