Geraint Thomas: It has been my best and worst season in the same year

Less than a fortnight after crashing out of the Tour de France with a broken collarbone Geraint Thomas is already back in training as he refocuses on the final part of his season. The Welshman, who crashed out of the Tour but led the race for several days after wining the opening time trial, has described 2017 as both his best and worst season. As he recovers from his Tour crash, he will now target the Tour of Britain and the World Championships before hanging up his wheels for the year.
