La Drome Classic - Race Overview

ORICA-GreenEDGE has finished outside the top ten at La Drome Classic in France today, despite a gallant effort by the outfit from the front of the peloton.

2013 Italian champion Ivan Santaromita was the team’s highest placed finisher in 12th, behind Samuel Dumoulin (AG2R La Mondiale) who won solo after an attack on the final climb.

“Going through the hills we had Simon and Adam Yates, Ivan (Santaromita) and Daryl Impey still in contention,” sport director David McPartland said.

“Simon popped and then the serious attacks began with 20km to go, ones we felt on the road at the time we needed to go with.
