Geraint Thomas: “I feel confident for tomorrow”

July 26 th 2018 - 19:12

 

It was a stress-free day for us from the tactical point of view. We were expecting a lot of attacks at the start to make it worse, then the tension to mount in the finale before the sprint. The first day on a leadership role didn’t change things for me, actually. It was business as usual. We kept doing what we have been doing so far, and the team was great on which was an easy day. I feel confident for tomorrow. We are expecting a lot of attacks: maybe some rivals will try to go on the early break, and for sure there will be some aggressive racing up the Tourmalet and the Aubisque. To overcome the stage we just have to ride together properly, without any excitement nor stress.
