Tweets of the Week: David Millar, Mark Cavendish, Andre Greipel and more

Ten tweets that caught our eye this week from the professional peloton

Cyclists and Twitter is often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in the professional peloton. Here’s some of the tweets that caught our eye this week, including ones from David Millar, Mark Cavendish and Andre Greipel.

1. Luke Rowe’s Movember effort is pretty impressive, especially compared to some of the moustaches currently being sported in the Cycling Weekly office.

2. David Millar finally underwent surgery on his broken fingers following his crash in the Vuelta a Espana, but the handiwork on the plaster doesn’t look terribly professional.

3. Cadel Evans will soon join Millar in retirement, but first the 2011 Tour de France winner is training for the Tour Down Under and his very own race along the Great Ocean Road.

4. Mark Cavendish is currently racing at the Ghent Six-Day track meet, but was slightly concerned when his fellow riders polished off the pre-race food before he got there.

5. Frank Schleck appears to be happy with the new bike Trek have made for him. Presumedly it’s not a Christmas present for his recently retired brother Andy.

6. Andre Greipel is already looking forward to locking horns with his fellow German sprinter Marcel Kittel. Kittel won four stages in this year’s Tour de France.

7. Peter Kennaugh discloses on a social media platform that another social media platform is distracting him from his training.

8. Movistar’s Alex Dowsett is keen to ensure his kit is just right before the season starts.

9. Jon Dibben may be trying out some new celebrations next year.

10. Olympic champion Dani King was released from hospital this week after a crash which left her with broken ribs and a collapsed lung.
