Froome, Thomas out

Former Tour de France champions Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas were both left off the INEOS team yesterday for this year’s race. INEOS announced its selections for the pandemic-affected season with its top riders allocated to each of the three major stage races. Defending Tour champion Egan Bernal will lead the team in France from August 29-September 20, denying Froome a chance to tie the record of five titles. Lance Armstrong’s seven wins were retrospectively wiped out because of doping. Froome will lead the team at the Spanish Vuelta from October 20-November 8. That will give the British rider, who won the Vuelta in 2011 and 2017, more time for his comeback from a horrific crash 14 months ago. Thomas, the 2018 Tour champion, will ride in the Giro d’Italia from October 3-25.
