Giro d'Italia
Stage 20: Pordenone to Asiago - Stage Details

Tour de France best young rider Adam Yates has survived a tough day to finish in seventh place on the penultimate stage of the Giro d’Italia today.

The 24-year-old crossed the line alongside white jersey threat Bob Jungels (Quickstep Floors) to maintain his 28second lead in the competition going into the final time trial. 

Ahead, the battle for the overall podium continued with Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) taking the stage victory ahead of Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin) and Vincenzo Niabli (Bahrain-Merida).

“I wasn’t on a good day,” Yates admitted. “I was dropped with (Bauke) Mollema on the first climb. I just had bad legs.”
