Geraint Thomas: “The last time I cried is when I got married”

I don’t know what to say. It’s just overwhelming. I didn’t think about winning the Tour de France for the whole race and suddenly… I’ve won the Tour, man! I can’t speak. It’s just incredible. The last time I cried is when I got married. I don’t know what’s happening to me. I felt good today. I felt strong in the time trial. I felt really good actually. I heard I was up and I pushing a bit hard in the corners sometimes. [Sports director] Nico [Portal] told me to take it easy and be a bit more relaxed, just to make sure I win the Tour. That’s what I did. It was stressful. I believed I could beat the guys here. It was the biggest stage of all over three weeks. It’s wonderful!
