Videos: Team Sky's Christmas card + Geraint Thomas turkey dash

Chris Froome gets a very special custom machine, G gets the Richard Mitchelson treatment

Team Sky aren't having the merriest of Christmases as the controversy regarding Sir Bradley Wiggins' use of therapeutic use exepmptions (TUEs) and that package delivered to the team's former doctor at the 2011 Dauphine rumbles on - but that hasn't stopped them getting in the festive spirit with their annual video Christmas card.

As you'd expect from an outfit sponsored by a media giant, the production is slick and sees three-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome get a very special new ride - and from this picture tweeted today, it looks as though he's also got some seasonal kit, too.

Meanwhile, Geraint Thomas and his family star in this lovely animation from artist Richard Mitchelson, made for Team Sky sponsor Shimano - will the Welsh ace make it back home from his training ride before all the turkey gets scoffed? Watch and find out ...

You can read our recent two-part interview with Thomas by following the links below.
