Tour de France
Stage 16: Carcassonne to Bagnères-de-Luchon - Stage Details

A late crash has shattered the hopes of a victory for Briton Adam Yates on stage 16 of the Tour de France today.

The Mitchelton-SCOTT attacked with three kilometres remaining on the final climb and led by 25seconds over the summit before sliding out on a damp corner with five kilometres remaining.

The 25-year-old was quickly back on his feet, only to have eventual stage winner Julian Alaphilippe (Quickstep Floors) pass him as he remounted. Battling on bravely, he claimed third from the chase just 15seconds adrift.
