Geraint Thomas says his slide down the Tour de France general classification due to injuries sustained in his stage three crash is "tough on the head" as the Welshman perseveres despite finishing in the gruppetto on the first mountain day.

The Ineos Grenadier finished 33 minutes adrift, although came across the line chatting and laughing alongside Primož Roglič, who has since abandoned the race, despite the result putting Thomas' GC hopes to bed definitively.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
