Someone [SIZE="2"]I'm guessing Cavendish[/SIZE] managed to convince Brian Holm to make a Twitter:

I've long been a bit confused by the fact that CAS can refer to both:
Court of Arbritation for Sport.
and Chris Anker Sørensen.

Probably did it to cheer Cav up, “Please Mark don’t be sad, you know I don’t like it when you pout, :( look I’ll join twitter! that will be fun! :o Please, give me a smile and we can be online friends too! :D

“oh, and please don’t say bad things about the limited edition Specialized Venge, bad for business...”

I can recommend RadioShack's George Bennett (NZL), some of his tweets are quite bizarre but often they are pretty funny:

Very rude stage for a comeback after mid season break, blew like a porn star from the small front group but @MatthewBusche held on for 5th


.@Jan_Bakelants is the only TDF leader in history to have a dog as his twitter profile pic- probably has a better photo to use now. #legend



big ups to the povo dickhead who smashed up my scooter last to (i think) steal the spark plug. karma will tell its the wrong size. #spained

Apparently it was a matter of "team rules"...

David Millar @millarmind

Well, @TeamSky rode a perfect race, and for the record, I believe they are clean and they deserve respect and admiration for it.

Just saying, because I don't think they deserve to have mud thrown at them when they work so hard to do it right. It doesn't seem fair.

FYI - it would be better if you linked to the actual tweet. Much better.

Personally, I tend to agree that with the first statement.

But that 2nd one? About not deserving mud? Nobody ever deserves mud, except everybody deserves mud. Just sayin', cryin' 'bout mud-slinging around here will not get anyone very far.

Good or bad, no matter, 'tis true. Duck! Incoming!
