Team Ineos are already poised for a Tour de France triumph before the race even enters the high mountains after a brutal display of strength on the eve of the first rest day.Thomas leads Bernal by for four seconds and Pinot, who was 19 seconds ahead Monday morning, is spending the rest day reflecting on a positioning error that caught him on the wrong end of a split.He is now 11th, 1:21 behind Thomas, and it was a sobering moment for the French fans hoping for a first homegrown champion since Bernard Hinault in 1985 .It also means that with Pinot and other top contender Jakob Fuglsang now far behind, the race might be less exciting.Thomas was also in upbeat mood.
