Tweets of the week: Jeremy Clarkson shouting at Charlie Quarterman and Tadej Pogačar selling sandwiches

Another very normal week in the world of cycling

A wise person once told me my generation was caught in the unfortunate paradox of being born too early to explore the universe and too late to smoke in pubs.

While I'll still hold on hope for the former, and of course would never dream of doing the latter as smoking is terrible for you, the person who came up with this saying had clearly never dreamt of the possibility that we'd live to see a week where Tadej Pogačar released his own brand of sandwiches as well as Jeremy Clarkson caught shouting at Charlie Quarterman while out on a training ride.

That's it, I have nothing more to say. You keep doing you, universe. You keep doing you.

1. Watching the world champion move traffic obstacles out of the way is the most similar experience I've ever had to a pro rider

2. Those two are me and the pond is the 2021 Tour de France

3. Looks like Remco really can do it all

4. An outrageous spot

5. I wonder if the Primož Roglič sandwich tastes of bitter disappointment

6. Now maybe we'll get an answer to the age-old question of whether the Pope rides a Pinarello in the woods

7. This looks an awful lot like the cycling equivalent of 'limbs'

8. The sort of humility you'd expect from the WorldTour's number one tractor driver

9. That's the debate settled then

10. 'Hi guys, yep, so what I need you to do is pretend to be asleep, could you do that?'

We'll be back in seven day's time with more pure fuego tweets

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.
