Paris-Roubaix is the biggest one-day race of the year, something you could just measure in the amount of social media content coming out of it. Of course, it helped that someone so enmeshed in the world of social media, Alison Jackson, won the women's race on Saturday. There has been many a Tweets of the Week which has featured the Canadian's kooky dancing from Instagram, and so it is fitting that she leads the agenda this week.

Another star rider who spends a lot of time online, Tadej Pogačar, took the time this week to respond to a quite mild bit of criticism on Twitter, which was interesting - just how much time does the UAE Team Emirates rider spend looking at Twitter? Is it as much as me? Probably not.
