Adam Yates wins GP Industria & Artigianato

Adam Yates GP Larciano 2017

Adam Yates (Orica-Scott) has won the GP Industria and Artigianato di Larciano for the second time today, sprinting to victory ahed of Richard Carapaz (Movistar) and Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac).

Part of an elite six man group that contested the finale, and included Cannondale-Drapac riders Rigoberto Uran and Simon Clarke, Androni’s Mattia Cattaneo and Egan Bernal, the 24-year-old Briton played it perfectly, letting his companions attack before jumping clear at the last moment and sealing the win.

“I wasn’t lucky, but I’m not renowned as a sprinter so it’s a good win for me,” said Yates at the finish. “I tried to give it some welly on the last climb and have a few digs, but I couldn’t get away from the other guys and had to wait for the sprint.”

“It’s really good to come back here and get a second win, the team were fantastic and it’s a great way to go into next week’s Tirreno Adriatico.”
