As summer gradually draws to an end, so does the 2022 cycling season. The final Grand Tour of the season, the Vuelta a España, has been and gone and all eyes turn to the World Championships coming up in Australia and races like Il Lombardia.
Along with the cycling season gradually drawing to a close comes long dark nights and colder mornings, although fear not. Tweets of the week is here.
We’re here to cheer you up, lift your spirits and provide you with some of the best content in the world of cycling Twitter over the last seven days.
Whilst it has a plethora of benefits, social media is typically full of over-inflated opinions, delusion and misery. Therefore we’ve gone to the trouble of sorting the wheat from the chaff so you don’t have to.
This week’s edition covers the goings on at the Tour of Britain, Vuelta a España, Ceratizit challenge by la Vuelta and a certain Manxman on mechanic duty for the day.
