Boardman: it's decision time for Geraint Thomas

Geraint Thomas, Tour de France 2011, stage 14

Geraint Thomas can be a GC rider in the Tour de France, but he must make a fundamental decision about the direction of his career - now - Chris Boardman has told Cycling Weekly.

Talking to CW for an expert column that will appear in the magazine on Thursday, Boradman said, "He's got a big career decision to make now. He could be a super-domestique always in the service of somebody else and being really good at it - like Mark Renshaw. Or he could go and be a GC rider and stage-winner in his own right."
