Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) won two consecutive summit stages, including Alpe d'Huez and wears the race leader's yellow jersey, now leading experts say he can win the 2018 Tour de France.

The Welshman leads the race with 1-39 minute, a time gap that looks even better given it is over team-mate Chris Froome. In third, Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) sits at 1-50.
