Geraint Thomas climbs to the top of the Trident of Ineos on the first climb of the Tour de France

Dani Martínez had predicted that the Tour de France hierarchy at the Ineos Grenadiers would not be decided on the climb up the Super Planche des Belles Filles, but when the dust settled Geraint Thomas emerged as the British superteam’s top finisher and leads now her trident from GC to rider.

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