Tour de France
Stage 14: Rodez to Mende - Stage Details

Simon Yates, the best young rider at the 2015 Criterium du Dauphine, has held on for a top ten finish from a successful breakaway on stage 14 of the Tour de France.

Yates represented ORICA-GreenEDGE in a 20-man move that was allowed the freedom to contest for stage honours by the peloton behind.

The 22-year-old followed an attack by Roman Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) on the final climb but just ran out of legs to follow him to its peak within two kilometres of the finish line. Steve Cummings (MTN Quebeka) stole the victory from behind.

“At the end of the day I just didn’t have the legs,” Yates said. “I’m disappointed but at the same time I couldn’t give it anymore.”
