Tour de France
Stage 16: Moirans-en-Montagne to Berne - Stage Details

Michael Matthews pitted himself against the world's fastest men on stage 16 of the Tour de France today, finishing in fifth place whilst ORICA-BikeExchange teammate Adam Yates holds on to the white jersey and third overall.

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) won the sprint with stage ten winner Matthews a bike length behind in fifth place.

White jersey holder Yates still leads the best young rider category and remains third on the general classification going into tomorrow’s rest day after finishing safely near the front of the peloton.

Sport director Matt White was happy with the performances and position of the team as they look forward to a well deserved rest day.

“It was a very fast stage today,” said White. “The tailwind helped out the breakaway which in turn made things a little more comfortable in the bunch.”
