Wiggins surrenders to Yates after Volta: "He's the next British star"

The winner of the 2012 Tour de France analyzed the superiority of Ineos in the Volta and also mentioned Geraint Thomas. "He will be a big threat this year on the Tour."


The Ineos team returned to take the roller that has characterized them in recent years in the peloton in the recent Volta a Catalunya, where they achieved a historic triplet in the general with Adam Yates winning the test, well supported by Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas.

A performance that has not gone unnoticed by one of the team's legends, Briton Bradley Wiggins, who on his Eurosport podcast positively valued the performance of the entire team, focusing especially on the role played by Adam Yates and Geraint Thomas.

Wiggins surrendered to the figure of Adam Yates, whom he even dares to name as the next great star of British cycling. "Ineos made quite a declaration of intent with the team they selected for the Volta. Adam Yates has already reached maturity in the team. He has always been very consistent, but now he is much more mature. The icing on the cake for Yates was going to the Ineos. It's the perfect team for him. Adam is the next big British star and these have been his first steps. "

Ineos' great performance at the Volta has also caused Wiggins to focus his gaze on Geraint Thomas, whom he sees as the team leader for the Tour after Egan Bernal confirmed that he would race the Giro d'Italia this year. "Geraint Thomas needed a great performance and he showed it. For him it was not about winning, but about looking at the Tour de France. We have seen a great Thomas, even if he did not win, as he did a few years ago when he won the Tour, and He will be a real threat this year. With this performance Geraint Thomas has cemented his leadership for the Tour, because he has helped in the distribution of the spoils and everything is on the right track ".
