Ineos Grenadiers' Adam Yates admitted that the team had to dig deep to respond to Lennard Kämna’s long-distance attack in the Volta a Catalunya, but for the third stage in a row, the British team ended the day on a high note.

Previously 13th overall, at just over 90 seconds back, the Bora-Hansgrohe rider attacked out of a break with 52 kilometres to go, and opened up a gap of more than three and half minutes at one point.
