Speaking on the second rest day before the final block of racing, Thomas holds a 1’39” advantage over second placed teammate Chris Froome, but insists the success of the team is the priority.
He said: “Coming here, it was a dream to be in with a shot of getting a podium and that’s still on the cards which is good, but I’m just trying to keep the same mindset as I have from the start.
“[Sport Director] Nico Portal has the call at the end of the day as he’s the boss, but he asks us [during the race] and he obviously has his opinion and he decides at the end of the day.
“I think it’s been working really well so far and hopefully it can continue. Winning is still not what I’m thinking about, I’m still taking it day by day.”
“It’s all about winning this race and as long as one of us wins – that’s the main thing.”
