Geraint Thomas was a expected protagonist of Tirreno-Adriatico stage 3 and in facts he has proven himself. Team Sky rider finished in fourth on the up-hill finish in Trevi and, thanks to the position achieved at the end of today stage, the Welsh is the new overall leader of the Corsa dei Due Mari. “The team was very strong – debuts Thomas, interviewed after he stepped off the podium – We had the plan to be as many as possible at the bottom of the climb. We did that very well. It was a natural selection to see how legs were”. Former Barloword rider’s goal was to succeed in winning the stage but things went differetly: “We tried to go for the stage but we can be happy with that. It’s nice to get the jersey. It will be a big test tomorrow. It’ll be different. Hopefully I’ll feel good and if I don’t Froome or Kwiatowski will take over”, ends his speech confidently with regards to the result Team Sky can achieve in the GC.
