Tour de Yorkshire
Stage 3: Middlesbrough to Scarborough - Stage Details

2015 Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian winner Adam Yates sprinted to third place for ORICA-GreenEDGE on the final stage of the Tour de Yorkshire today finishing fourth on the overall general classification. 

The result was hard earned by the 23-year-old British rider after a long and arduous stage that included five categorised climbs and saw the race split apart many times before the finish. Yates missed out on third overall by only one second in what proved to be a close run three-day race.

Yates and teammate Chris Juul Jensen made it into the final selection after attacks came thick and fast on the final climbs of the last stage.

Sport director Matt Wilson was happy with the team’s performance throughout the race.

“It was a great ride by Adam (Yates) and the team today,” said Wilson. “He had a real crack from the front group with around 30kilometres to go. He was feeling good but couldn’t quite go with the final attack on the last climb.”
