Geraint Thomas worked for Tao Geoghegan Hart at Tour of the Alps but is expected to challenge for the general classification at the Giro d’Italia in two weeks.
After he finished third behind Jonas Vingegaard and Tadej Pogacar last year at the Tour de France, Thomas as a big contender for the pink jersey in May and he believes he can beat the two big favourites, Remco Evenepoel and Primoz Roglic.
“Yeah for sure, you’ve got to believe you can beat them,” Thomas said. “Obviously they’re by far the strongest favourites with what they’ve done so far this year. But we can go in there confident, and try to do what we can.”
“I’m feeling better week-by-week, and it just feels like as the weeks go by, I’m soaking up the benefits from the work I do,” he added. “I think I’ll just go there, try and just get there in the best shape I can and then take things from there.”
