Tirreno-Adriatico: Geraint Thomas loses victory due to sudden mechanical issues as Caruso takes lead

Geraint Thomas Tirreno Adriatico 2018

Team Sky’s man Geraint Thomas sadly lost his leader’s jersey after suffering sudden mechanical issues on fourth stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.


The incident which took place only a couple of hours ago, was the last thing Thomas needed to experience in one of the closing stages.


Along with four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome (who took third place), had to lose 40 seconds to fourth stage winner Mikel Landa, one of the main men to help Froome seal the last couple of Tour de France victories right before deciding to leave the Team Sky’s family and move to Movistar.


Thomas’ mechanical issue took place only one kilometer away from the finish line losing precious seconds and a jersey to stage winnner Landa.
