Description - The Tour According to G: My Journey to the Yellow Jersey by Geraint Thomas

The inspirational inside story from the 2018 Tour de France and Sports Personality of the Year winner

"This year G was the strongest rider, and he finally had Lady Luck on his side. An unstoppable combination" Chris Froome

"I understood what Geraint's win meant: for him, for me, for the team, and for Wales, too" Dave Brailsford

"Wow!" Arsene Wenger

For years Geraint Thomas appeared blessed with extraordinary talent but jinxed at the greatest bike race in the world: twice an Olympic gold medallist on the track, Commonwealth champion, yet at the Tour de France a victim of crashes, bad luck and his willingness to sacrifice himself for his team-mates. In the summer of 2018, that curse was blown away in spectacular fashion - from the cobbles of the north and the iconic mountain climbs of the Alps to the brutal slopes of the Pyrenees and, finally, the Champs-Elysees in Paris. As a boy, G had run home from school on summer afternoons to watch the Tour on television. This July, across twenty-one stages and three weeks, and under constant attack from his rivals, he made the race his own.

With insight from the key characters around Geraint, this is the inside story of one of the most thrilling and heart-warming tales in sport.

Not only can nice guys come first - they can win the biggest prize of all.
