    The tweets of the week: Dutch men taking over the UCI?

    The tweets of the week: Dutch men taking over the UCI?After a few weeks of absence, the Tweets of the week are back with the tweets of the past two weeks!

    From the UCI list of suspicions to the Giro d'Italia 2011 and Tour of California race routes to Matt Brammeier's eating habits, you'll discover everything. Matthew Hayman must regret that the end of the world didn't become truth while Robert Gesink is learning Spanish.

    If Stef Clement had his word to say, Dutch people would be leading the UCI

    You must have heard about the UCI list which ranked the riders who participated in the Tour de France 2010 according to a suspicion index. The French sports newspaper L'Equipe got hold of this list and published it as is in its pages.

    Largely criticised, especially by the riders but also by the UCI, ...

    The tweets of the week: time trialing in the Tour de Romandie

    The tweets of the week: time trialing in the Tour de RomandieFor this last week of April, the Tweets of the week are mainly about the Tour de Romandie and its two time trials, a big event the whole world was watching last Friday: William and Kate's marriage, and about another event, a sports event which will take place soon: the Tour of Italy. We also talk about Geraint Thomas shaving his legs and Sean Weide (BMC Racing Team) explains us why the results of the Tour de Gila took so long. And that's not all ...

    The tweets of the week: Mark Cavendish enters the world of Twitter

    The tweets of the week: Mark Cavendish enters the world of TwitterThis week the Tweets of the week are mainly about a newcomer on Twitter. When a rider like Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad) joins Twitter, this of course gives some buzz!
    We also find his team mate Tejay van Garderen who runs into an old friend in Liège and Steven Cozza (Team NetApp) who discovers something on Twitter. We round up with Alex Dowsett's new shoes and Liz Hatch who's surprised about Jérémy Roy's illness!

    Mark Cavendish, what an entrance!

    When a rider like Mark Cavendish arrives on Twitter this leads to many comments!

    Not really surprising when you see that the rider from the Isle of Man got over 21,000 followers in only a few days!

    A certain Chris Cla ...

    The tweets of the week: is there any food left?

    The tweets of the week: is there any food left?This week in the Tweets of the week a new advertising career for Ricco, Steven Cozza going green, Daniel Oss looking for excuses for not respecting the traffic rules, a multi-functional cook with Katusha ... and many more!

    A super chief cook for Katusha

    Patrick Chassé has his eye on everything! While visiting the Katusha web site, the French journalist (cycling commentator on Eurosport France) is surprised by the role of press agent in the team. Indeed, on the "press agents" page of the web site we see ... the cook of Katusha Team! Indeed, apparently after having prepared dinner, it's possible in this team to work on press relations ... Well, we think it's a bit strange anyway! ...

    The tweets of the week: from the Hell of the North to the first steps of Brent Bookwalter

    The tweets of the week: from the Hell of the North to the first steps of Brent BookwalterThis week was not really surprisingly for most riders dominated by Paris-Roubaix. The Tweets of the week are thus also mostly dedicated to the Hell of the North.

    You'll see that some riders try to decompress by doing something completely different, like for example Fabian Cancellara (Team Leopard-Trek) who tests what the life of a bus driver is like, or Ted King (Liquigas-Cannondale) who has a no stress approach to one of the toughest races in the world, and Manuel Quinziato (BMC Racing Team) who's not really used to the French weather forecast ... and many more!

    Paris-Roubaix? Why not?

    Some riders are anxious to start in the Hell of the North while others (like Mark Cavendish for example!) get all excit ...

    The tweets of the week: Fabian Cancellara better knows the Belgian roads than the address of his website

    The tweets of the week: Fabian Cancellara better knows the Belgian roads than the address of his websiteYou might have noticed that there hasn't been a new edition of the Tweets of the week last week. This one thus looks back on the past two weeks!

    This week in the Tweets of the week, Fabian Cancellara (Team Leopard-Trek) is the main actor with his new web site, the cost of the team bus and his Tour of Flanders 2011. Robert Gesink (Rabobank) now tweets in English while Tejay van Garderen (HTC-Highroad) has to restyle his appartment.
    Koen de Kort (Skil-Shimano) said to be a bit disappointed there was no one at the start of the

    The Tweets of the week: when Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O'Grady fight for a blanket!

    The Tweets of the week: when Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O'Grady fight for a blanket!Yet another edition of the Tweets of the week since the previous edition was slightly delayed. This week we discovered how Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O'Grady (Team Leopard-Trek) fight for a blanket and the young Andrew Talansky (Garmin-Cervélo) who gives his look at Pat McQuaid's letter. Kenny van Hummel (Skil-Shimano) almost got a new camera while Cédric Vasseur and Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) talk about the longuest race of the UCI WorldTour.
    Ben King (Team Radioshack) thinks he's dreaming when he sees his name in the results of Nokere Koerse!

    Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O'Grady are worse than a married couple

    As you probably know, the riders of each of the teams get to share one room f ...

    The tweets of the week: Brajkovic complains about the AFLD and the peloton starts a sausage banThe most important Tweets van de week (of last week in this case) were about nervosity in Paris-Nice, Thomas De Gendt's sausages and voice activated gear shifting with Ted King and Taylor Phinney. And of course Jani Brajkovic and his attack on the AFLD which generated a small buzz in the world of cycling about drug controls.

    Much later than usual you'll find here the most interesting, funny and shocking Tweets ... I promise next week the Tweets will be published early in the week!!

    Jani Brajkovic complains about the AFLD

    Jani Brajkovic (Team Radioshack) Tweet in which he complained about the fact to have had the 4th drug control during Paris-Nice 2011 while his team mate Andreas Klöden already had 7, generated some buzz in the world of cycling! He ended his message by indicating that the vampires simply say: we're AFLD, we can do whatever we want. ...

    The tweets of the week: when Alex Dowsett tells stories to Twitter

    The tweets of the week: when Alex Dowsett tells stories to TwitterIn this fourth edition of the Tweets of the week, Alex Dowsett (Team Sky) tells a story and appreciates Davide Appollonio's nice Italian accent, Koos Moerenhout (Rabobank) prepares his children for a pro career while Alexander Kolobnev gets blocked by the snow.

    While Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) has had enough of uphill finishes, Brett Lancaster (Team Garmin-Cervélo)'s son would like to get the same massage as his dad and Greg Henderson (Team Sky) is wondering until what time he can get on his hometrainer.

    Finally, Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing Team) is having some bad karma while Stef Clement (Rabobank) has finished with that and is getting back to competition!
