Geraint Thomas: “It’s going to be tough tomorrow”

July 24 th 2018 - 18:48

 

It wasn’t easy but it was a good day. Fuglsang and Zakarin had a go, we brought them back pretty well. Landa tried also but the descent was good. There were quite tricky descents today. Luckily the weather was good. Many riders were thinking about tomorrow. It’s gonna be very tough. At least I’ll have a good starting position on the grit. I must not get too carried away in the first climb. I must not go too deep too early. That final climb is arguably the hardest of the Tour. It’s 16-km long. It’s steep all the way. Hopefully I won’t be at threshold too much. It’s gonna be interesting. Every day in yellow has been a bonus and tomorrow is a decisive day. I’m looking forward to get it done.
