Happy New Year from all of us at Cycling Weekly's Tweets of the Week department. We've had a busy time of it over the Christmas and New Year period, sorting out the good takes from the bad takes, and generally sifting through the mountains of content that have been produced by bored professional cyclists as they sit around at home during the festive season.

It might be 2023, but Twitter and Instagram are still the places to go if you want to see behind the scenes of cycling, from how Zoe Bäckstedt's cousin reacts when she sees her on television, to how 32-year-old treats 23-year-old Tom Pidcock at Ineos training camps (the answer is immaturely).

Adam Becket
News editor

Adam is Cycling Weekly’s news editor – his greatest love is road racing but as long as he is cycling on tarmac, he's happy. Before joining Cycling Weekly he spent two years writing for Procycling, where he interviewed riders and wrote about racing. He's usually out and about on the roads of Bristol and its surrounds. Before cycling took over his professional life, he covered ecclesiastical matters at the world’s largest Anglican newspaper and politics at Business Insider. Don't ask how that is related to cycling.
