Geraint Thomas leads the breakaway on stage 12

Welshman Geraint Thomas, who wore the Tour’s best young rider white jersey during much of the race’s opening week, has signed a new three-year deal with Team Sky.

Thomas has been having an excellent Tour, leading out teammate Edvald Boasson Hagen for his victory on stage 6 and winning the most aggressive price after joining a long breakaway on stage 12.

“It’s great news to be able to commit my future to Team Sky. The team have shown their potential over the last 18 months and I am delighted to have been a part of that success. The management have shown real faith in me as a rider and I feel like I’m improving all the time,” he said.

Team sports director Sean Yates said, “G is one of the strongest riders in the team. You can say anything to him and he carries it out to perfection, he can do it all. He’s always got the legs and we’ve seen it time and again this year – he’s worth five men really and it’s great news. He’s fantastic to work with and this gives everyone another lift.”
