Adam Yates powers to GP de Montreal victory


Adam Yates (UAE Team Emirates) claimes the victory at the GP de Montreal after a late-race two-rider breakaway on the final ascent of the circuit’s decisive Côte Camillien-Houde on Mont-Royal. 

Alex Aranburu (Movistar) managed to hang on for third place.

“There’s a lot of metres climbing and, in the end, it’s almost six hours so it’s a super-taxing day,” Yates said after the race.

“The guys did a good job to look after me, and then we started to wind up with three or four laps left to go. The guys did an amazing job to set the pace real high.

“I’m not super explosive but I can do this sort of really heavy dual pace, so we knew if we could do this we’d have a better chance. In the last lap, I just went full gas.”
