Tweets of the week: Tadej Pogačar the gangster, Remco Evenepoel feasts and Demi Vollering cries

Tom Pidcock's dog loves a lick, and hey, aren't those two normal looking men vaguely famous?

Tadej Pogačar's crash at last weekend's Liège-Bastogne-Liège deprived us of one of the all-time great duels at La Doyenne; just imagine what the Slovenian could have done on the La Redoute to combat Remco Evenepoel. Instead, the world champion simply rode away to victory for a second year running, while Pogačar headed straight to hospital with a fractured wrist.

Cycling's loss is social media's gain, as the injured Pogačar is forced to rest up and heal - and not play FIFA, apparently. We have already had smiley Tadej with his wrist in a doodled-on cast, and now the UAE team Emirates rider is posting photos of himself hanging out with his partner, Urška Žigart. One wonders how much more content we are going to get out of the 24-year-old while he's forced to take a break from the bike.

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.
