Welsh Geraint Thomas was the best placed Barloworld rider in yesterday's Tour de France prologue, finishing 45th in 9'37". He was thrilled with the run that started in Whitehall and finishing in Hyde Park.

"It was really exciting to start my first Tour de France experience in such a glamorous atmosphere," 21 year-old Thomas noted after the run to his team's press officer. "Everything was fantastic, with the exception of my legs. Even though I can consider my result as positive, I'm convinced to have not given my best". Read the recent interview with Thomas.

Barloworld's Enrico Degano briefly held the lead, as he was the first rider to roll down the ramp.
