Geraint Thomas finished the 19th stage of the Tour de France in the third position of the General Classification. The rider of Ineos is one minute and three seconds behind his Colombian teammate.

Everything changed in the stage due to its neutralisation because of extreme weather and at that moment Egan Bernal was already in front, while Thomas was behind with the rest of the favourites. The stopping of the stage was done at the descent and the race organisation stated that the times would be taken on top of the Iseran.

"It was a funny one because if we’d known (about the cancellation) beforehand it would have been more of a race to the top of that last climb," said Thomas. "But it’s one of those things. It’s out of everyone’s control.

"It’s all ifs and buts. The main thing is that we’ve got the jersey in the team now and we’re in a great position. We just have to go in there and finish the job off tomorrow now. Going into the last stage Egan’s in yellow. The main thing is he finishes the job. For sure he’ll have a decent advantage over everyone else. I fully support him now. He’s been incredible from the start and he’s a phenomenal talent."
