Five-time Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault has said that Team Ineos have no one to blame but themselves for their leadership quandary. In Egan Bernal, Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome, the squad have three Tour winners on their roster and tough choices to make come the 2020 Tour, which begins on August 29.

Hinault is, of course, no stranger to intra-team rivalries, having memorably battled Greg LeMond while the pair were teammates at La Vie Claire in 1985 and 1986.
