Paris-Nice - Race Overview

Yesterday’s stage winner Simon Yates fought hard to defend his overall lead in Paris-Nice today, but came agonisingly close and had to settle for second place, missing out on the overall victory by just four seconds.

Despite Mitchelton-SCOTT’s efforts to bring back Marc Soler (Movistar), who rode away from the reduced front bunch in the final 50kilometres of the stage, it proved to be too much, as he crossed the line 35seconds ahead of Yates, enough to steal the race victory.
