Tour de San Luis
Stage 5: San Luis - San Luis (ITT) - Stage Details

Adam Yates continues to impress in his debut race with ORICA-GreenEDGE. The neo-pro was the team’s top finisher on the Tour de San Luis stage five individual time trial. Yates stopped the clock at 24’06 after 19 kilometres, 1’55 slower than surprise stage winner Adriano Malori (Movistar. The Brit’s time was good for 36th place on the stage and 13th overall, 4’10 behind new race leader Nairo Quintana (Movistar). Yates now has a firm grasp on the best young riders jersey with nearly a five minute buffer to Caio Godoy (Clube Dataro de Ciclismo-Bottecchia) in second place.

"No one on our team has a time trial bike here except for Santaromita as none of us expected to challenge for the stage or the overall. Despite lacking time trial bikes, we all treated today as a good opportunity to go through the same motions that we would for any time trial. I did my usual warm-up, and I went out and rode a good, hard threshold effort. Adam had a very respectable time for riding disc wheels and aerobars on a road bike. He has repeatedly shown that he’s on some really good early season form, which is a great thing." - Christian Meier
