Itzulia Basque Country
Stage 1: Zumarrage - Zumarrage - Stage Details

Recent Volta Catalunya stage winner and second place finisher Adam Yates had a strong performance today on the opening stage of Itzulia Pais Vasco, riding to fifth place in the short 11.3kilometre race against the clock.

The Brit kept a good rhythm and gained some time on a brutally steep climb mid-race, to eventually finish the day 16seconds down on the winner Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and goes into tomorrow’s first road stage in a good contention.
