Promising British rider Thomas Gloag will only be back racing at some point after the Tour de France, Wielerflits reports, as the Visma-Lease A Bike rider continues to train following an accident last August.

A few months after Gloag made his Grand Tour debut by helping then-team leader Primož Roglič take a memorable victory in the 2023 Giro d’Italia, the 22-year-old Londoner suffered a knee injury when he was struck by a car while training during the summer.
