With the Tour de France 2019 fast approaching, cyclists are doing their last little bits of preparation to make sure they're ready for 21 days of racing across undulating French countryside.

This obviously includes getting your social media game up to scratch.

Here are the posts that caught our eye this week, featuring Chris Froome, Alex Dowsett and Peter Sagan, of course.

1. Looks like Chris Froome's crash hasn't dented his sense of humour.

2. Respect to Tao Geoghegan for surely being the first person to ever use the hashtag #TitaniumCollarbones.

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.
