Hello, hi, welcome back to Tweets of the Week. 

By now, TotW is pretty much the only solid thing you can rely on in this world, pro riders tweeting nonsense week in, week out. The environment edging towards disaster, politics resembling a pair of tangled headphones, culture reduced to the latest hit thing on Netflix, the meagre duality of Adele vs. Ed Sheeran and yet another Marvel film.

Sorry to put a downer on things. To cheer us all up we've got Tadej Pogačar's goat doodles, Rigoberto Urán showing us his alternative EF Gone Parenting programme, and Sam Bennett doing...something.

9. I've seen a lot of polls on cycling Twitter recently, I don't really understand it, but I do understand the Groupama-FDJ social media person has taken time out of their day to photoshop goats over Thibaut Pinot's eyes

10. This baby gets no rest, surely only a pair of running trainers away from a triathlon now

We'll be back in seven days' time for another dumpster dive into the life-affirming cesspit of Twitter dot com.

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.
