Geraint Thomas: “I’m not going to be complacent”

July 25 th 2018 - 19:18

 

I didn’t know what to expect but it’s been a hard day and I’m happy to leave it behind. Chris [Froome] told me with 4 or 5km to go that he wasn’t feeling great. There was no way I’d have attacked him but it made me understand that the others had to be in trouble too. I followed Roglic and Dumoulin and I went for the seconds bonus of the third place but I also got a time gap so it’s a nice bonus. I think I’m in a good position now but it doesn’t change the mental approach we have. I’ll keep doing all the small things right. I’m not going to be carried away or complacent. We’ll continue riding well as a team. That’s our strength. It might be hard to believe after what happened between him and Brad [Wiggins] but Chris and I are honest and open with each other. That makes the success of our team.
