There are three Britons in the squad, with Thomas and Froome joined by road captain Luke rowe.
Tom Dumoulin rescued what could have been a horror Stage 16 on Tuesday. The GC leader was forced to stop for a 'toilet-break' towards the end of the stage but instead of his rivals neutralising the race and giving him a chance to re-join they powered on and the Dutchman lost nearly two minutes of his overall lead thanks to a strong finish.
A stunning Individual Time Trial ride by Tom Dumoulin has given him a lead of over two minutes going into today's Stage 11. Here's hoping he has more success on the road than he has with ladies!
It was a bad day for British riders Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates in the Giro on Sunday as both were involved in a crash just before the final climb of the day.
What made it worst was that the pile up was caused by a police motorbike parked on the side of the road!
The crash left the door open for race favourite Nairo Qunitana to win the stage and take the Maglia Rose with a 24 second lead over Thibaut Pinot and Tom Dumoulin.
Thomas and Yates are now well off the pace.
The Giro D'Italia is a week old as the riders set off on the seventh stage today from Castrovillari to Alberobello.
It's another stage for the sprinters and we're unlikely to see a change in the GC where Silvan Dillier currently adorns the Maglia Rose. Things are set to get a bit tougher over the weekend.
We're nearing the end of today's stage in the Giro D'Italia but Bahrain Merida rider Luka Pibernik went for home a lap early!
I wonder if he thought that it was all a bit too easy?
It's a relatively flat stage 5 today in the Giro D'Italia between Pedara and Messina that will suit the sprinters.
It will come as relief to Matteo Pelucchi who was suffering at the end of yesterday's stage at Mount Etna!
Whilst Chris Froome was fighting off some French road rage on Tuesday, his teammate Geraint Thomas was moving into second place in the Giro D'Italia following the fourth stage of the race and the first summit finish on Mount Etna.
Froome came away unscathed from his crash on a training ride in France, but the same couldn't be said of his bike where a french driver essentially ran last year's Tour de France winner off the road.
Meanwhile, Thomas finished third in stage four grabbing some vital seconds at the end of the climb up the volcano to put four seconds ahead of overall third place and fellow Brit Adam Yates who rides for Orica.
Today's stage sees the riders tarvel from Pedara to Messina in what will be a sprint finish.
It's stage 4 of the Giro d'Italia today and the riders have their first summit finish as they climb Mount Etna!
Fernando Gaviria wears the Maglia Rose but we'll see the first real shake up today as they climb the volcano and we see the GC contenders come to the fore.
Chris Froome has a frosty relationship with the French at the best of times!
Glad he's okay.
