Bastille Day Tour de Force

A Welshman in virtual yellow!

As I post this short item, Geraint Thomas, a Cardiff lad, is the virtual Yellow Jersey on the Tour de France!

I’m quite sure this is the first time a Welshman has found himself in this position. The important point, however, is what happens to him during the remaining 120 kms of today’s mountain stage. He has to face three ‘killer’ climbs today, including the fearsome Col du Tourmalet.

But, whatever happens, he will always have the satisfaction of having led the Tour for at least a couple of hours!


Once I can tear myself away from the TV set, I’ll have more on Geraint and other Brit riders in this totally absorbing and hugely competitive edition of the Tour de France.
