Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas will no doubt enjoy today, as he is cycling through his native Wales.
The first stage of this year’s Tour of Britain is from Pembrey to Newport. It is also the only bit of the tour that is not in England. You can’t help but feel that if you are doing a Tour of Britain, you would want to include Scotland – it would make for some interesting “King of the Mountains” challenges.
Tour of Britain is on ITV4 at 10.45.
