Though the sight of Sky massed on the front of the peloton most of the day was not one to excite fans, Thomas delivered the stage win with panache.

Jul 22 2018 07:11 pm CET Geraint Thomas (Sky) has finished the 15th stage of the Tour de France at the top of the General Classification.

The 12st stage of the Tour de France is always one of the most special and Geraint Thomas's historic victory made Thursday's ride one to remember, however there were also a couple of unsavoury incidents.

Facing no attacks on the flat stage, Thomas had no trouble maintaining his advantage of 1 minute, 39 seconds over defending champion Froome.

The general classification contenders led by Team Sky finished the transition stage more than 18 minutes behind victor Omar Fraile (Astana) but the last climb in Mende allowed for humble comparison.

"There are three big, big days left, and then the time trial, so (I) just take each day as it comes and we will see what happens", Thomas said.

Froome, who won the Tour in 2013 and 2015-2017, was only cleared to participate in this edition days before the start by the International Cycling Union (UCI).

Dumoulin, the time trial world champion and last year's Giro d'Italia victor, is third, 1:50 behind, and Roglic is fourth, 2:38 back.

Team Sky, whose domination is reminiscent of that of Lance Armstrong's U.S. Postal team in the early 2000s, have been largely unpopular in France.

"It's the same as what we saw with US Postal", Chiotti told the Midi Libre newspaper Sunday. They want to be close to us, and to touch us. "I knew that I still had another gear".

Team Sky initially worked to keep the group at five minutes, but soon let them off the leash as Sagan claimed maximum points at the intermediate sprint and Alaphilippe led the way across the first climb.

"It's not a nice situation". It's a massive honour just to be wearing it.

"It's been such an incredible race so far and there is a bit of negativity around, which obviously isn't nice".

The race jury reviewed footage of the incident after the stage, which appeared to show the Italian reaching back and throwing his hand towards the face of Gesbert.
