Geraint Thomas to skip Vuelta a Espana for Deutschland Tour

Geraint Thomas will not race at the Vuelta a Espana, instead choosing to ride the Deutschland Tour at the end of August.

It had been rumoured that the 2018 Tour de France champion would lead Team Ineos at the third and final Grand Tour of the season in Spain, but instead British youngster Tao Geoghegan-Hart is expected to take the leadership role.

The Deutschland Tour, which takes place between August 29 and September 1, will be Thomas’ first race since finishing the Tour de France as runner-up to his Colombian team-mate Egan Bernal.
