Adam Yates wins the GP Industria & Artigiano for a second time

The race: Here's the report from race winner Adam Yates' Orica-Scott team.

2016 Tour de France revelation Adam Yates has won the GP Industria & Artigianato di Larciano for the second time today, sprinting to victory in style against an elite field of the world's best climbers.

Orica-Scott rode a controlled and intelligent race behind the day’s early breakaway before strong turns from Australians Jack Haig and Rob Power dramatically reduced the peloton and set the scene for Yates.

Part of an elite six man group that contested the finale, and included Cannondale-Drapac riders Rigoberto Uran and Simon Clark, the 24-year-old Briton played it perfectly, letting his companions attack before jumping clear at the last moment and sealing the win.

“I wasn’t lucky, but I’m not renowned as a sprinter so it’s a good win for me,” said Yates at the finish. “I tried to give it some welly on the last climb and have a few digs, but I couldn’t get away from the other guys and had to wait for the sprint. It’s really good to come back here and get a second win, the team were fantastic and it’s a great way to go into next week's Tirreno Adriatico.”

Sport director Neil Stephens was overjoyed with the result and the overall team performance. “Fantastic day,” said Stephens. “The boys were superb throughout, we knew it was going to be a hard race so we were happy when the early breakaway went clear without posing too much of a threat.”

“There were no issues over the first two-thirds of the race, then we had a bit of chat and the boys started bringing it back together on the penultimate lap and looking ahead to the finale.

“We rode hard going into the final circuit with Jack and Rob really driving the race to shake things up before Adam took off. From there he played his cards brilliantly, he had a few digs to test the water before picking his moment to finish it off. It was a well deserved result for the team today and a great effort, of course we are very happy to be continuing our great start to the season.”

How it happened:

As expected, the race started with early attacks coming from the Italian domestic teams with two riders eventually creating a gap of around five minutes after 30kilometres had been covered.

Two more riders bridged across to create a leading group of four after an hour of racing. After 90 kilometres the race started the first of four passes of the San Baronto climb with the four leaders now back within five minutes of the peloton and light rain starting to become a little heavier.

The lead of the quartet continued to fall steadily with each circuit before finally being caught then passed on the penultimate lap after strong work by Oroca-Scott.

After the pace setting from the Australian outfit, a reduced peloton immediately started to form with fresh attacks coming from Bahrain-Merida and Cannondale-Drapac. Haig and Power drove the race into the final lap and with less than 20 kilometres remaining Yates jumped clear with a six-man move just before the final ascent of the San Baronto.

Yates looked strong throughout, unleashing a series of sharp attacks on the ascent and as the group crested the climb the 24-year-old Briton rode intelligently to emphatically take the sprint victory.
