Milano-Torino - Race Overview

The 98th edition of Milano Torino today saw Adam Yates fight all the way up the final part of the Suprega climb to claim second place for ORICA-SCOTT.

Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac) launched a solo attack inside the last three kilometres, as Yates fought on relentlessly behind in an attempt to close the distance to the Colombian.

As every metre ticked down, Yates drew closer and closer to Uran but the line came too soon and Yates had to settle for second place, crossing the finish line just ten seconds behind.

Sport director Dave McPartland praised the young British riders efforts on what was a close and exciting finale in Torino.

“It isn’t a win but Adam rode a really good race and the best thing about today is the indication of his form ahead of Saturday’s monument,” McPartland said. “In hindsight Adam should have gone with Uran’s attack but you can’t go with everyone and it becomes a tactical thing then, once somebody has gone up the road.”
