This year's Tour de France has certainly lived up to expectations, with plenty of drama unfolding on the roads, cobblestones and gravel. 

With the general classification finely poised going into the second full week of the race, the rest of the Tour is a mouth-watering prospect. Today (Monday) is the second of three rest days, though, so unfortunately you'll have to wait another 24 hours before witnessing the action again. 

However, thanks to the power of social media, there's plenty of content from the past week to get you through the day off - chapeau to all those involved. Less than 24 hours to go. Enjoy this time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the latest instalment of tweets of the week.
