Tour of Alberta
Stage 4: Town of Jasper to Marmot Basin Ski Area - Stage Details

2015 San Sebastian champion Adam Yates has finished third for the second consecutive stage at the Tour of Alberta in Canada.

The queen stage four concluded with a 12km ascent to the finish line and it didn’t disappoint, igniting fireworks at the head of the field for an exciting finale.

ORICA-GreenEDGE’s Yates joined the flurry of attacks with two kilometres to go and launched a secondary move inside the final kilometre to enter the final 500m with a slight advantage.

Yesterday’s stage winner Tom-Jelte Slagter (Cannondale-Garmin) managed to repeat his efforts to steal the victory whilst Bauke Mollema (Treak Factory Racing) finished second, just ahead of Yates.

“Adam attacked in a spot where it got steep just outside a kilometre to go and went around a bend into a slight headwind,” sport director Dave McPartland explained.
