Geraint Thomas said that he was disappointed after missing out on victory with Team Sky in the Tour de France's team time trial in Cholet, but is still sitting high on the general classification

Team Sky finished second best in the 35.5km team time trial west of Cholet in Vendée. They briefly held the lead, but Richie Porte's BMC Racing team pushed them out by four seconds. Greg Van Avermaet took the race leader's yellow jersey at the end of stage three.
