As the Autumn weather begins to hit and cyclists worldwide begin to pull their arm warmers out of the wardrobe, the road racing season draws to a close. 

This year, the Italian monument Il Lombardia was a final goodbye to cycling for Vincenzo Nibali, “the Shark of Messina” as well as former Spanish World Champion Alejandro Valverde. Belgian legend Philippe Gilbert was another rider to hang up his wheels recently and his final hurrah on his home roads of Belgium was also a passing of the torch to recently crowned Belgian world champion, Remco Evenepoel. 

Worry not though tweets of the week super fans, there has still been plenty of action in the world of cycling social media to stir the senses this week.  

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 goodbyes from the greats, new sponsorship announcements and a certain Danish rider showing off his big tire!

Happy reading.
