Tweets of the week: Nairo Quintana, Sam Bennett, Thomas De Gendt and more

The best social media posts from across the cycling world this week

Nairo Quintana (Cycling Podcast)

Another week, another set of tweets for your viewing delectation. And don't worry, there's no talk of backstops, prorogation, and no one in the professional peloton has maybe lied to the Queen...we think.

Evade the current hellscape of the real world with ten comfortingly enjoyable tweets from the world of cycling.

1. Forget a fine, there should be a cash prize for such displays of athleticism.

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. I'm 6'0", 26 years old, have a strong hairline and have an adequate amount of savings for someone my age. I'm very single at the minute so if you know anyone, hit me up.


Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab, reporting about students evacuating their bowels on nightclub dancefloors and consecrating their love on lecture hall floors. 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.
