Geraint Thomas grabbed second place at Dwars Door Vlaanderen, a sort of semi-classic that acts as a curtain-raiser for the epic races over the next few weeks. He’s an amazing rider, and learnt the ropes in Cardiff, riding for the Maindy Flyers along with Matt and Luke Rowe, a youth cycling club based at the famous outdoor track in Cardiff. Steve trains there on a regular basis; apparently last week the bunch was stacked with Cardiff Jif riders.
anyway, in short, Geraint Thomas is a brilliant rider. and he seems halfway normal, which is always a bonus in the world of professional sport.
