Geraint Thomas: It still hasn’t really sunk in

Geraint Thomas (Sky) will undergo surgery on his broken collarbone this week but has no firm plans for the remainder of his season after he was forced to abandon the Tour de France through injury on stage 9.

Thomas fell on the descent of the Col de la Biche with a shade over 100 kilometres remaining on the stage, and although he remounted, he quickly realised that his race had come to a premature halt.

The Welshman, who won the opening time trial in Düsseldorf a week ago and spent four days in the yellow jersey, was lying second overall, just 12 seconds down on his teammate Chris Froome. It was the second time Thomas was forced out of a Grand Tour through injury this season, after a crash at the base of the Blockhaus brought an end to his general classification challenge at the Giro
