You will be amazed by some of the things that you find on social media! From bad quotes, to cycling news and tips. This week we picked a few of the top features from the Tour de France.
Cycling isn’t always miles and smiles, sometimes you lose some skin when you come off your bicycle. At the Tour de France this week we have seen a few horrible crashes, we wish all the riders involved a speedy recovery and hope to see you back on the road soon!
Thanks everybody for your support and messages! That was a hard crash but, fortunately, I haven't broken anything and I feel confident about the last four stages of @LeTour (@bettiniphoto) pic.twitter.com/9VuYYmFl0W

A master class from a talented French man. Julian Alaphilippe is a phenomenal bicycle rider and has displayed his class at this year’s Tour de France.
A daredevil descent propelled @alafpolak to a second stage victory at #TDF2018 after the one in Le Grand-Bornand, at the race's 50th visit in Bagneres-de-Luchon, on a day which saw the Quick-Step Floors rider increase his lead in the polka dot jersey. pic.twitter.com/G3GilxjuJg

You can’t put Lawson Craddock down, very few people would have backed the American to make it to Paris on Sundays after falling very hard on Stage 1.
Adding insult to injury is riding 15 days of the Tour de France with a fracture in your scapula only to ride through a cloud of pepper spray. Never a dull moment at @letour. Another $100 to the @AlkekVelodrome! https://t.co/oRUzsNB3ao

A crazy week at the Tour de France from leadership debates at Team Sky, which were eventually decided on the road, pepper spray bringing the race to a stand still, and a few big crashes. We thought we had seen it all, but in another bizarre incident, Chris Froome was tackled descending back to the team bus after stage 16!

Sport provides us with some amazing memories! Dan Martin shared a classic, from his early days as a cyclist and one of the few times that he has beat Geraint Thomas.
