The tweets of the day: Pinot is always the most loved, tour of the lake at the start


Pinot Italia

He did not win, but on the finish line of Crans-Montana the most cheered rider was, once again, Thibaut Pinot. While putting on the Maglia Azzurra, the crowd started chanting in his honour “Shalalalalaaaa, Tiiiiboooo Pinoooo”. And immediately afterwards the Frenchman stopped for the customary photos (on the cover). Ti-bo Pino was written on a banner, which in French sounds like “T’es beau, Pinot”, meaning “you are beautiful Pinot”.

In this respect, the meme created by Groupama-FDJ, featuring a masked hooligan with the Pinot flag, is explanatory.

At the start (only formal though, since the stage was shortened) in Borgofranco d’Ivrea, the teams were greeted, once again, by pouring rain. “Lake trip…?” tweeted Bora-hansgrohe. “Swimming to the start,” added Astana Qazaqstan.

And Jayco AlUla emphasised Eddie Dunbar‘s expression during pre-stage operations, which well represented the collective vibe of having to ride in the rain again 🙂
