Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) says he's relishing the prospect of returning to the Classics this spring, after a couple of years of sitting most of them out to focus on stage races.  The Welshman will take on cobbled Monument Paris-Roubaix in April, before making his debut at Liège-Bastogne-Liège a couple of weeks later.

Thomas last completed a full cobbled Classics campaign in 2015, taking one of his biggest career victories at E3 Harelbeke and third place at Ghent-Wevelgem shortly after.
