Tirreno-Adriatico
Stage 5: Castelraimondo - Filotrano - Stage Details

The fifth stage of the 53rd Tirreno-Adriatico was dubbed the ‘the stage of the walls’, with the parcours dotted with short, but steep climbs and Mitchelton-SCOTT went into the stage with a plan to win, a plan they executed perfectly with Adam Yates taking the victory.

After suffering some misfortune on stage two when he got hit from behind when trying to avoid a heavy crash, Yates had been trying to claw back some time on the general classification and today's stage win sees him back in the top six.

A challenging day unfolded over 178kilometres in Marche and as the race hit the last of the challenging finishing circuits of Filottrano Mitchelton-SCOTT took over with Luke Durbridge and Michael Hepburn leading the charge.

Jack Bauer and South African champion Daryl Impey were lined out behind and as the road inclined for the final time Yates attacked, gaining a gap he held all the way to the line for a memorable victory.
