Thomas:

“On that final climb anything can happen. There’s a lot of climbing to that point, and the race has been super hard to this point. We [Thomas and Froome] may find ourselves together having to chase or together in front. There could be big gaps, there are so many different scenarios. But like I said, as long as me and Froome don’t race against each other, that’s the main thing.”

G already getting way more attention across British media than Froomey ever did. This is the right winner for Sky at this time

If Froomey didnt win Giro maybe it would be different, but G has to collapse for him nto to win

Well, she's not from Wales like SuperG but Julia Jacklin
hails from down in New South Wales and her 2016 disc
"Don't Let The Kids Win" (no offense to Egan I'm sure)
has a lovely track "Coming Of Age" that G might enjoy:

Yeah now I'm alright, I'm doing fine
But I'll be pushing up that hill until I get what's mine
Yeah now I'm gonna learn this new stage
Didn't see it coming, my coming of age

A nice description of stages 11 and 12 Julia, very nice.
So is this art imitating life, or is it sport imitating art? :)
I wonder if Geraint is still listening to "Don't Let The Kids
Win" and if he has moved on from the 3rd track "Coming
Of Age" to track five called "Motherland" with these lyrics:

But oh I'm good, I think I'm good.
Will I be great, will I be great?

In his Motherland of Wales he's already considered great!
In a word, OUI!
 
The big question now is, does he stay with Sky? Seemed like he was leaning towards leaving but now? It will be interesting to see how Sky handles this. Do they just tell them they will be co-leaders at next year's Tour? I don't see Froome or G wanting to do the Giro next year
 
Thomas knows he won't get team support like this elsewhere but if he wins the Tour I think that would encourage him to move on and be sole team leader at another team. Money talks of course. I would like to see Froome do the Giro/Vuelta next year but he probably won't depending on how he feels about a fifth Tour.

Rumors that Pinot is arriving as well.

I always love it when trackies do well on the road, whether it is
monuments, classics, grand tour podiums or stages. If a track
rider wins on the Alpe tomorrow, and I am not really expecting
that to happen, it won't be the first time. A great rider that has
won a silver in the points race in the world championships and
has ridden the Team Pursuit for his nation at the Euros, World
Cup and Olys also has two Tour stage wins on two epic climbs.
That's if you consider Ax 3 Domaines and Alpe d'Huez epic. :)
edit: I almost forgot he also has a madison silver at the worlds.
And our Super-G has a madison silver from the worlds as well,
to go with all his Olympic and world champs team pursuit golds.
:surprised: SuperG joins Christophe Riblon! Another trackie prevails! :)
If we go back to the 2008 UCI Track World Championships where Sir
Wiggo won three Golds including the Teams Pursuit in World Record
time alongside SuperG, Clancy and Manning, another of the amazing
events was the points race where french rider Christophe Riblon won
the final two sprints but fell a single point short of the victory behind a
rider now on Team SKY that has a Giro stage win where he went solo
on the ascent of the Colle delle Finestre and stayed well clear on the
ascent of the Sestriere for a big victory measured in the minutes, not
seconds. Yes, Vasil Kiryienka! Who'd you think I was taking about? :surprised:

Really looking forward to how Geraint and Team SKY take on stage 19.

Why, that's so illogical. Is it to fulfill the weird desire to win the Tour with a French rider? Even though Brailsford has said he now hates french people? He'll be behind Bernal and future Tour winner Luke Rowe too, anyway.
