Bradley Wiggins backs Geraint Thomas to win 2020 Tour de France

Bradley Wiggins says Geraint Thomas will train hard enough to win the Tour de France if it goes ahead in 2020.

The British cyclist talked about how each of the top riders will be able to adapt to a cycling calendar decimated by the COVID-19.

“It’s about who handles this situation the best,” Wiggins said on his Eurosport podcast. “I would say that G [Geraint Thomas] will train really well through this period. This suits him quite well. He will still be doing the same amount of work as he was before.

“G is a bit of a machine and I actually think G will turn up in better condition for the Tour than if he was racing.”

“He’s that kind of guy who can churn this kind of training out. G is the type of rider who can always see the bigger picture.”

“G is either on or off, so that’s the difficulty for him – whereas Chris Froome, he has already got a plan in the sense that he was already coming back and he’s got to keep going to get back to the level he was at before.

“I imagine Egan [Bernal] is out there training. Egan will be good, of course.”
