'It's not like I haven't performed since I won the Tour,' says Geraint Thomas, who reaffirms his form with Romandie win

Geraint Thomas says it feels good to finally break his winning duck, taking his first victory since the 2018 Tour de France with the overall title at the 2021 Tour de Romandie.

The Welshman said he was initially angry after his slip at the end of stage four gifted Michael Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation) the race lead and stage win, but his superior time trial performance on the final stage five ensured he'd be on the podium in the yellow jersey.

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.
