Team Ineos Decided To Drop Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas For Tour de France

The Team Ineos has decided to drop Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome from the upcoming edition of Tour de France. The move that surely signals the end of dominance of British cyclists in the event.

Geraint Thomas said, “It’s nice to finally have a firm plan in place and to know exactly what I’m doing and to try and get some sort of positive out of this year.”

“It is definitely a readjustment for me, moving the goalposts to the Vuelta, but I am not confident that I can really fulfil the necessary job that will be needed of me at this year’s Tour de France,” he added in his statement.

Chris Froome said, “I think it’s a lot more realistic to target the Vuelta and it gives me a chance to get stuck into something that is deliverable really.”

“People have to remember that I have come back from a horrendous crash last year where I fractured a lot of bones in my body. The recovery is complete. I don’t have any pain. I don’t have any lingering issues. But certainly that was a big knock to me and I’m still coming back to that full level of fitness,” he added.

Brailsford said, “I am very proud that we have several current, and I am sure future, grand tour champions in the team.”

“Egan will once again target the yellow jersey in France and we are very excited to give last year’s Giro winner, Richard Carapaz, his debut in this year’s Tour.”

“Chris is a legend of our sport, a true champion who has demonstrated incredible grit and determination to come back from his crash last year. We want to support him to compete for another Grand Tour title and the Vuelta gives him that little bit more time to continue his progress to the top level,” he said.
