Ineos Grenadiers, the Tour de France and the Geraint Thomas instance


At an Ineos Grenadiers group coaching camp earlier this yr forward of the 2023 Tour de France, lead sports activities director Steve Cummings used an image of one of many squad’s extra sudden – though totally deserved –  success tales as an inspirational instance: Geraint Thomas in yellow on the Champs Elysées in 2018.

Thomas had come into that Tour as a rider who was not totally established as Ineos ‘Plan B’ to Chris Froome. But as Froome flagged in July after digging deep to take his personal victory within the Giro d’Italia, it was Thomas who triumphed, and since then has taken second and third within the Tour as nicely.
