Tweets of the week: Vuelta a España, Bradley Wiggins and John Degenkolb

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

The Vuelta a España is currently giving us our last taste of Grand Tour action this year, but before we know it will be gone. Then it's the Tour of Britain and the Yorkshire Worlds but then we'll be left without any cycling for months. How best to stave off the ensuing existential crisis? Bury your head in social media and block out the rest of the world, of course.

Here are some posts that caught our eye this week, including ones from the Vuelta a España, Bradley Wiggins, John Degenkolb, and many more.

1. A couple of questions about this one. Firstly, why. Secondly, why did they let exactly zero people in the stadium to watch.

9. Always great when the non-riding staff behind the scenes get their deserved acknowledgement. Who said anything about Movistar's lack of teamwork?

10. We'll end with an Instagram (there are no rules) post of John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo) doing his best Peter-Sagan-up-a-climb impression, showing why the German is a firm fan favourite.

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.
