It’s safe to say that it has been a funny and eventful few weeks on social media, not just for the world of cycling or sport in general. 

With a billionaire and his ego taking over Twitter, the wonderful world of the cycling twitter verse may soon be no more. 

Although a plethora of professional riders didn’t let the doom and gloom stop them from partying like a boss and cracking dad jokes like there was no tomorrow. 

As well as Laurens De Plus’ shocking sense of humour, a certain Slovenian superstar on Jumbo-Visma was modelling some questionable facial furniture at a charity event and Cristiano Ronaldo ended his unhappiness at Manchester United with a sudden and unexpected switch in profession to pro bike racing. 

So here it is without further ado, the best there’s been of cycling social media in the past few days.
