His post, Pro Cycling on Twitter, is well worth a read – especially those of you who like me, are closely following the Tour de France.
Some of the world’s top cycling professionals have taken to Tweeting on a regular basis. For the first time, cycling fans are getting the real skinny about the behind-the-scenes happenings of professional cyclists as they travel the world.
It’s not just the pedaling pros who are Twittering. Team managers, mechanics, coaches…they’re all getting into the act. We’re getting real-time updates from team cars as the races progress. And race organizers themselves are Tweeting information for fans attending the races on a regular basis: where to park, where to watch from, after race events, and much more.
In addition to individual Twitter handles, Chris includes some interesting personal vignettes and insights for each of the pro cyclists in his list.
