GERAINT Thomas could wrap-up the Yellow Jersey in some style today.

Thomas is a near certainty to become the first ever Welsh winner of the Tour de France and a North Wales cycling figure has predicted he could cement his place at the top of the podium with victory in today's stage 20.

This is a hilly 31km time trial from Saint-Pee-Sur-Nivelle to Espelette.

Rhyl Cycling Club secretary Jon Harland described Thomas' display yesterday as "very solid".

"(He's) almost certain to win now and he may even win today in the 31k km time trial," he added.

"(It's) not flat and will suit him as much as any other (of the) favourites.

"He is in the form of his life."

Thomas will be the last man out today at 3.29pm, defending a lead of two minutes and five seconds over Dutchman Tom Dumoulin, in second.

Third-placed Primoz Roglic is a further 19 seconds adrift in third position.

Meanwhile, with Wales preparing to turn yellow, S4C has extended Tour de France live coverage.

The final day of racing will be shown in full on S4C, including the podium ceremony, as the channel announces extended live coverage for Sunday afternoon, kicking off at 3pm - live on TV, S4C Clic and Facebook Live.

From the Pyrenees to Paris, S4C has followed Thomas since 2014. This year, after years of hard work as a crucial part of Team Sky, the work has paid off for Thomas as he aims to hold on to the Yellow Jersey until the bitter end in Paris on Sunday.

Presenter Rhodri Gomer and the S4C Seiclo team have been there every step of the way, with daily live programmes every afternoon and highlights in the evening.

On television, online and on Facebook Live, viewers won’t miss out on any of the action with S4C.

“I met Geraint a week before the race to wish him luck," said Rhodri Gomer.

"As he left the room, he looked back at me with a big smile.

"From that moment on, I knew he had the confidence to win.

"Geraint hasn’t put a foot wrong; he’s stayed firmly in the saddle and I’m certain he will survive until Sunday."

He added: “It’s difficult to put in to words the impact of winning Le Tour de France will have on Geraint’s life and its importance for Wales.

"It will put Welsh cycling and our sporting history firmly on the international sporting stage.”
