Critérium du Dauphiné - Race Overview

Briton Adam Yates finished in fifth place on the final stage of the Criterium du Dauphine today, taking seventh on the general classification for ORICA-GreenEDGE after a string of impressive performances in the French Alps.

Yates rode well throughout the week with a third place finish on stage five the highlight for ORICA-GreenEDGE as the 23-year-old continues to impress in his preparations for this year's Tour de France.

The team raced intelligently again today with South African Daryl Impey infiltrating the breakaway on yet another mountain stage and then providing valuable support for Yates in the final 30kilometres.

Sport director Laurenzo Lapage was pleased with how the race went for ORICA-GreenEDGE and in particular with the condition of Yates in the mountains.

“I'm very proud of the team and their performances this week,” said Lapage. “This is not an easy race and the last three days in the mountains have been especially difficult."
