Geraint Thomas is 26 years old and has never done well in a race like this. I don't know, I can't see him winning at least. Top 5? Sure.Ferminal said:Who says Gilbert is in top form? Who says Thomas doesn't have vastly superior form to Merckx?
With good legs Thomas could top5.
I'm sure if EBH is good enough he will get a result, but if not he will work for someone stronger.
And you're right, form is uncertain at this point, but the logical approach would be to give G a free role. Anyhow, the bookmakers have EBH at 4/1 and Geraint Thomas at 50/1...
