Tweets of the week: Pogačar can be beaten, Pidcock meets the royals, and Remco's an Arsenal fan

Sadly for Tadej Pogačar, serial winning doesn't seem to apply to go karting

I feel sorry for Tadej Pogačar. I really do. If I was at the top of my sport, winning at will, I'd expect the masses to be roaring my name. At the very least, I'd want them to be patting me on the back, not begging for me to get beaten. 

This year, the Slovenian has done 10 race days. Of the 10, he has won six, including Strade Bianche and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and finished on the podium at another two. He's a phenom, a force of dominance, and some are starting to get sick of it.
