Sky lead Thomas back onto podium at Tour Down Under

08:22AM 27th Jan 2013

The team of former race leader Geraint Thomas could have started the final stage at the Tour Down Under wallowing in self pity after a disappointing end to Stage 6 at Old Willunga Hill. Thomas was wearing the ochre leader's jersey entering the queen stage and seemed destined to become the 15th winner of the tour but he cracked on the final ascent, losing the lead and dropping to fifth overall.
