The irregular 2019 of Thomas before the defense of the Tour

The Welsh cyclist leaves as a favorite to win the Tour de France despite his fall in Switzerland although his performance is far from his performances last year.


Geraint Thomas will defend his title of champion of the Tour de France from 6 July in Brussels despite the fall that made him leave in the Tour of Switzerland with several superficial blows but without any fracture.

Thomas will arrive at the Grande Boucle with some results very discreet. The Welshman started his season in the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, where he was never with the best of the general. After competing in Strade Bianche (12th), Thomas left in Tirreno-Adriatic due to stomach problems and returned in the Tour of the Basque Country, with another less brilliant performance.

The best race of Thomas so far in 2019 has been the Tour de Romandía, where the Welshman finished in third position of the general after Primoz Roglic and Rui Costa. The Ineos cyclist returned to the competition in the Tour of Switzerland, where he was in eighth position before the moment of abandonment.

The results of Thomas distan much of which the Welsh rider harvested at the beginning of the season 2018, when he took the general of the Tour de France. Then Thomas was second in the general of the Volta ao Algarve (won the Lagoa time trial), he was third in Tirreno-Adriatico and he also took the overall Dauphiné, where he was Top-5 in the last five stages of the race.
