Tadej Pogačar's GC rivals knew he would attack on Sunday's queen stage at the Giro d'Italia, but that didn't make it any more manageable, Geraint Thomas said post-race. 

The pink-jersey-wearer put in a typically commanding display on stage 15, his most dominant so far at the race, breaking free with 14km to go to win the stage, three minutes ahead of the other GC contenders.
