Anyone who saw Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad will almost certainly say that it is one of the best races, well, ever in the history of roads. So it’s an almost exclusive OHN Tweets of the Week: we have Wolfpacks, beardies, bad predictions and bad, bad tactics. Settle down with some frites and mayo, because we’re off!

It was another Belgian race with Etixx-QuickStep doing the majority of the work for the majority of the race – but the finale couldn’t have been more different from yesterday. Mark Cavendish ensured his team wouldn’t get another spanking when they got into the team bus by passing Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) in the last few metres for his second Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne victory.

Remember the days when the peloton looked like a flock of spectacularly coloured tropical birds, flitting and soaring around various parcours and brightening the drab cobbles in April? Ahh the memories of Mapei – [slips off into reverie]

Many, many years ago, when I was a kid, Santa put a pack of Western Gunfighters Top Trumps in my stocking, and it wasn’t long before I was hooked on comparing who had the highest price on their heads and who had the most kills. Imagine how thrilled I am to see that Procycling Trumps is going strong with, well, Procycling Top Trumps. Now I can see how El Pistolero squares up to his rivals! (See what I did there?)

Another week of racing, another week of hot tweets dealing with the burning issues of the day. We have Jack Bobridge’s (unsuccessful) hour attempt, Bernie‘s Luca-like beardage, Fabs and the Force and Mick Jagger‘s continuing solo tour of lonely places.
