Classic Sud Ardèche - Race Overview

Adam Yates of ORICA-GreenEDGE has finished seventh at La Classic Sud Ardeche in Guilherand-Granges today, after a fast, undulating race, which saw Petr Vakoc (Etixx-Quickstep) take the win.

Sports director Dave McPartland was happy with the team’s overall performance.

“It was a really strong ride from Adam today, despite suffering from cramp in the closing stages of the race,” McPartland said. “He was a away with a group of five riders in a move which looked promising but then got brought back. To stay up there and finish strongly in the sprint is very promising.”
