Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas left out of Team Ineos’ Tour de France squad

Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas have both been left out of Team Ineos’ Tour de France line-up as Sir Dave Brailsford signals a changing of the guard within the team.

Defending champion Egan Bernal will line up with the support of 2019 Giro d’Italia winner Richard Carapaz, but four-time winner Froome will instead go to the Vuelta a Espana, while 2018 Tour winner Thomas looks to the Giro d’Italia.

This year’s Tour, delayed to start on August 29, was Froome’s final opportunity to secure a record-equalling fifth Tour title before he leaves Ineos to join the Israel Start-Up Nation squad next year.
