An 18.3km team time trial in Frauenfeld also took place today to mark the start of the Tour de Suisse, another World Tour event.

"It's incredible, it hasn't sunk in yet", Thomas said of the victory.

Sir Bradley Wiggins won the race for a second time in 2012 before going on to become the first British victor of the Tour, while Froome has won it on four occasions, each time going on to claim the yellow jersey in Paris. I was always thinking of the next day or the next day.

"The puncture didn't really help and having to chase back on, but the guys were just incredible, they rode really well for me and I had the legs to get back". Now I realise I've won a massive race. When they started sprinting with 300m to go I was like "it's done - finally".

"I'm just going to enjoy this win now, rest up and recover and look forward to July".


He follows fellow former British winners Brian Robinson, Robert Millar, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome in to the history books.

"It's been a learning process starting in a new team so getting this win for UAE is great", he said. We're getting closer and closer so I'm happy to get confidence from this race. I just made that final move towards the end. Thomas came in second, managing to put further valuable seconds between himself and his rivals for the yellow leader.

Baudet and Martin, third and fourth in the overall standings respectively, were unable to stay with Thomas, who broke clear of their small group 500 metres from the line.

England's Adam Yates, who's twin Simon wore the pink jersey at the Giro d'Italia for 13 stages in May, was third on the day at 15 seconds. Adam Yates (GBR/MIT) at 1:29, 3.
