Thomas Edges Closer to Welsh Sporting Immortality After Latest Tour de Force

Geraint Thomas insists he is not thinking about winning the Tour de France despite another emphatic performance on the final summit finish of the race. The Cardiff-born rider took a massive step towards producing one of - if not the finest achievement by a Welsh athlete.

Power Charges Back Into Action With Double Win

Mid Wales racing driver Ben Power made a successful return to the UK National Legends Car Championship with MRF Tyres, scoring two race wins in the latest rounds at Donington Park in Derbyshire.

Superprix Of Wales To Bring F1 Cars To Parc Y Scarlets

The organisers of the brand new Superprix of Wales, which will take place at Parc y Scarlets next summer, are aiming to attract some of the biggest names in motorsport as they bring Formula 1, Le Mans, British Touring, Rallycross and World Rally cars to Llanelli in 2019. The motorsports extravaganza will run for three days, between 7-9 June, on a specially designed course that will see cars power around the perimeter and then through the middle of the stadium. It promises to be an action packaged, high-octane show, with demonstrations, exhibitions, displays, a motor show, trade stands and a food village – and an opportunity to view some of motorsport’s most iconic cars close up, and meet the star drivers.

Wales U18s On Course For Semi-Finals At EuroHockey As Miles Margetson And Tim Hodges Lead The Way

Wales Under 18s are one win away from clinching a semi-final berth in the EuroHockey Youth Championships II on home soil. Lee Ible’s team followed up their epic late comeback against Scotland, where they secured a draw after being three goals down, with a convincing 2-0 victory over Switzerland at Sophia Gardens. A win over the Czech Republic on Wednesday evening (6.00pm) would see them safely through to the final four.

Jay Fulton Aiming To Settle After Swans Shake-Up

Jay Fulton is hoping a change of manager will lead to a revival in his opportunities at Swansea City this season. The Swans midfielder played in the club’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Spanish club Eibar on Tuesday night in Austria. It was the 24-year-old Scot’s latest pre-season action as he bids to convince new manager Graham Potter he can be a first team regular – a status he failed to achieve under both Paul Clement and Carlos Carvalhal.

Geraint Thomas Admits Brutal Mountain Stage Will Make Him . . . Or Break Him

Geraint Thomas has admitted Stage 17 could make or break his bid to become the first Welshman to win the Tour De France. The Team Sky rider will wear the yellow jersey on a brutal 65km route that includes four long ascents over three mountain passes and will require two hours of solid climbing. If Thomas is to crack – as he has at times before on previous tours, although always in the service of team leaders - then this is the stage where his rivals will bid to make it happen again.

S4C Agree New Guinness Pro14 Deal But English Language Option Is No More

Welsh rugby fans will have no weekly free-to-air English langauge coverage of the Guinness Pro14 next season. Welsh language broadcaster S4C have announced they have agreed a new three-year deal for the tournament, but they have been stopped from providing a red button English commentary service as in past years. With BBC Wales having lost the live rights to Premier Sports and having failed to agree any deal for a Scrum V highlights programme, it means there will be no regular English language free output.
