Geraint Thomas rises to top of Ineos trident on first Tour de France mountain

Dani Martínez had predicted that the Tour de France hierarchy at Ineos Grenadiers would not be decided on the climb of Super Planche des Belles Filles but, as the dust settled, Geraint Thomas emerged as the British super team’s best finisher and now spearheads their trident of GC riders

Race leader Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) surged away with Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) in the steep final 200 meters of the race’s first summit finish, but Thomas finished fifth at only 14 seconds, just behind Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) .
