It's the weekend after the Vuelta a España and before the Yorkshire Worlds. You may have therefore come to the conclusion that this would result in a slender offering in this week's tweets of the week.

But oh no. Oh, no no no no no. We've got Vincenzo Nibali dancing, Rafał Majka on a rager, Chris Froome with some pristine GIFs and the best, and probably only,  Simon Geschke impersonator. Oh, and Rihanna, obviously.

1. The fewer questions asked here the better.

2. Expect to see RiRi on your next club run with those cycling shorts, belting out her cult classic 'come on and take a bidon'.

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.
