After the bitter failure of the Tour de France, the Ineos Grenadiers team is approaching the Tour of Italy with even greater ambition. While Egan Bernal did not manage to get a second consecutive Grande Boucle, the British team being satisfied with a stage victory for Michal Kwiatkowski in front of Richard Carapaz, Geraint Thomas will have the task of getting the jersey rose on Italian roads. “I am excited to lead the team in Italy and I feel ready,” said the Welshman in a statement from his training. This year has been strange for everyone but it’s great to have this huge goal. My legs feel great, Tirreno-Adriatico went well and the world championship time trial increased my confidence. The first step is approaching and I am more motivated than ever. “

Thomas relies on a team at his service

To accompany the winner of the Tour de France 2018 during his fourth Tour of Italy, the Ineos Grenadiers team has decided to bet on two outstanding riders, Rohan Dennis and the very recent world champion in the time trial Filippo Ganna . Already present on the Tour de France, Jonathan Castroviejo will also be there along with Tao Geoghegan Hart, Jhonatan Narvaez, Salvatore Puccio and Ben Swift. “We bring a great team and I have total confidence in the guys around me. Making a Grand Tour again with ‘Swifty’ (Ben Swift, editor’s note) will be a pleasure, we’ve been good friends since I was 12 and he will be our road captain, assures Geraint Thomas. Tao (Geoghegan Hart) and I have done well together in the past, especially when I won the Critérium du Dauphiné and Filippo (Ganna) is flying after the Worlds. (Salvatore) Puccio has so much Giro experience, young Jonny (Jhonatan) Narvaez is doing great and obviously everyone knows what Castro (Jonathan Castroviejo) and Rohan (Dennis) can do. An all-terrain team that will have to live up to its ambitions.
