Geraint Thomas looks ahead to stage 5

Well we are already on the bus, on the way to the start of stage 5 as the days soon start rolling into one during the tour. It feels like we are constantly on our bike or on the bus.

We have a two hour transfer to the start, hence the early departure. Today looks like a sprint day again, but the final 50km or so could be dangerous, with crosswinds likely. It will be a very nervous bunch again coming into the finish.

Yesterday was a great stage. To see Contador attack and most of the hitters up there was good to see. I think Contador has some good legs and is still the man to beat. Hats off to Cadel, that was a long sprint to the line yesterday! I was happy with how I rode. The plan was to keep Brad in a good position until the start of the final climb, after that it was every man for himself… To keep the jersey again for another day was a nice bonus.

Back to today. I’ve got it wrong the last couple of days but I still think Cav will finish it off today. Not many people would have seen but he had bags of speed on stage 3 when Farrar won. He must have closed a 20m gap in the last 250m, not the easiest thing to do!
