According to La Gazetta dello Sport, it was Oleg Tinkov's live broadcast in which he sent a message to Cannondale after kidnapping Peter Sagan:
Team Sky vs Orica GreenEdge.
If you use Twitter and you live under a tree, perhaps you haven't yet heard of #skyvoge. It's marketing genius but some of us know that and are already bored. But in case you aren't, what could it possibly be? We find out Monday, but in this teaser it looks like a load of pub games.
The twitter and other social media trash talk is already at fever pitch. Now, if it was based on teams with "dodgy (but they're probably reformed now) past staffers", Sky would be kicking themselves for getting rid of Leinders, Yates, de Jongh and Julich. They'd be 4-2 already over GreenEdge.
Maybe there's also a Xenon chug off - WADA hasn't said it's illegal yet.
While one rivalry fires up, another one has been put to rest. Froomedog v Wiggo. Apparently Wiggins has apologised to his better, and seems pretty zen:
But I think he has just refocused his angst and now sees Luco Paoloini as his rival...for the best ginger beard.
Here's Luca's luscious locks:

It is said that Wiggins challenged to Luca and Simon Geschke to a game of this:
...but he knew he couldn't win, especially after he saw Luca was able to beard Pozzatto:
7h10'5000m/dsl io e @PippoPozzato ADDIO FOLLOWERS ..me and #pippo goodbye followers #ciclismo #amici pic.twitter.com/OfiVncUR2r...and he pulled out before he really had a chance to even compete.

I leave you with this video of Lee Lin Chin's Oscars special. Of course there's no relevance to cycling, well apart from Matthew Mcconaughey probably once played bongos with Lance, but it's not the first time this week someone in cycling has milked an irrelevant event.
