Cycling Weekly was the first to jump on the Toms Skujins Milan-San Remo live tweeting story:
You would have thought that trying to ride in the break at Milan-San Remo would be hard enough, but one of the two Cannondale-Drapac riders in the move is also managing to tweet at the same time.
At the time of writing with a lead of around two minutes and riding at 40kmh along the Ligurian coast, Toms Skujins is giving minute-by-minute updates of his time at the front of the race.

Now officially riders aren’t allowed to use their mobile phones in races (just ask Luca Paolini who found himself in a bit of hot water at the 2014 Tour de France after being snapped texting mid-race) but Skujins somehow seems to be getting away with it so far.
