Adam Yates retained his yellow jersey to complete victory Sunday at the Tour de Romandie for his biggest win in more than two years.
Yates’ solo ride in the mountains Saturday to win the queen stage had created a 19-second lead over Matteo Jorgenson of Movistar. The English rider maintained that gap by finishing safely in the pack of a sprint that decided the final stage.
The stage win Sunday went to Fernando Gaviria who raced several bike lengths clear of the other sprinters on the lakeside finish in Geneva.
“We controlled the race perfectly today,” said Yates. “It’s been a perfect week for us, we had two stage wins.”
Yates got his biggest win since the 2021 Volta a Catalunya. Damiano Caruso placed third trailing the winner by 27 seconds.
