A slightly later-than-planned tweets of the week, sorry, that damn racing got in the way again. The good news for us, and for you as a result, is that racing means more content! And that is what we all want: content.

As Arcade Fire once sang: "Infinite content, infinite content, we're infinitely content." So I hope this makes you infinitely content, which it will do, because who doesn't like looking at a roundup of social media content that you might already have seen? 

Today, there is a lot of posting from the Amstel Gold Race to consider, alongside some slightly older things that we should have written about last week, but we ran out of time. Enjoy.

PS I'm looking forward to Arcade Fire's new album, if you're reading this, Win Butler, please send me gig tickets.

11. Did you know that Kwiatkowski is actually smaller than a pint of Amstel? Weird but true. Pinarello have to specially make his bike

12. And finally... Marta Cavalli looks so delighted with her multiple pints of Amstel. Imagine ordering one of these at your local. It would surely cost £50? I don't know, you would probably have to supply the glass yourself

Hello, I'm Cycling Weekly's senior news and features writer. I love road racing first and foremost, but my interests spread beyond that. I like sticking to the tarmac on my own bike, however.


Before joining the team here I wrote for Procycling for almost two years, interviewing riders and writing about racing.


Prior to covering the sport of cycling, I wrote about ecclesiastical matters for the Church Times and politics for Business Insider. I have degrees in history and journalism.
