Critérium du Dauphiné
Stage 2: Tarare - Pays d'Olliergues-Col du Béal - Stage Details

Whilst most eyes were on the elite group of six riders that took shape in the final five kilometres of the second stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné, Adam Yates quietly impressed in the first chase group. The neo-pro ultimately finished in eighth place on the stage, 42” behind stage winner Chris Froome (Team Sky). The climbing prowess demonstrated by young Yates saw him make a major jump on the overall classification from 64th place to 9th place, 1’31 behind Froome.

“This is a massive step up from what we saw Adam do in Turkey and California, especially right before the Tour de France. All the best guys in the world are here. They’re all super fit and super motivated. This is racing at the highest level. We think Adam did an awesome ride, and he sounds pretty happy with his performance, too.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
