Ellingworth: If Thomas has an enormous deal we’re unlikely to match it

The transfer season is in full flow with a flurry of big-name signings already having been announced, but for Ineos Grenadiers the situation appears to be one of relative calm, despite the high number of riders still out of contract on the team. There are a number of contract discussions still going on with Geraint Thomas, Gianni Moscon and several U23 riders, with offers on the table for next season.

Top of the list is Thomas, who after a disappointing summer finds himself slipping down the GC pecking order at the team. Despite a successful opening few months of the season, the Welshman failed to make a significant impact at either the Tour de France or the Olympic Games, with crashes denting his ambitions. Cyclingnews understands that Ineos has put an offer in front of the former Tour winner but that the terms are lower than the last time Thomas was out of contract.
