So far, Geraint Thomas' 2021 season is shaping up in a similar way to his 2018 campaign that culminated with the Welshman winning the Tour de France

Three years ago, Thomas came to the Critérium du Dauphiné having placed second in the Tour of the Algarve and third in Tirreno-Adriatico and rode off with the title after proving himself the strongest in the mountains. This season, his form has been building in the same way, third place in the Volta a Catalunya followed by overall victory in the Tour de Romandie, which has led to him being installed as the clear favourite for a second Dauphiné title.
