Racing the 2019 Tour de France with Chris Froome "can work" if done with "honesty", says 2018 winner and team-mate Geraint Thomas.

Thomas wants to approach the 2019 edition as he and Team Sky did in 2018, which should see the two captains working in harmony this July 6 to 28. He is due to return to the Tour as defending champion with Froome, a four-time winner, racing alongside him.
