Geraint Thomas expects he'll have the chance to race for a stage win at this year's Tour de France, where he will support his Ineos Grenadiers teammates in their GC bids. 

The 38-year-old, who won the yellow jersey in 2018, will line up in his 13th Tour on Saturday, returning to his former domestique role at the race. This time, Thomas will ride in support of Carlos Rodríguez, his team's outright leader, and Egan Bernal, who is also hoping for a strong GC showing.
