If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, is a saying that Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) plans on applying in full to the Giro d’Italia -  in other words to use what he learned from his only Grand Tour victory to date, in the  Vuelta a España  2018, to try to take another this October.

"In 2018 we aimed to take the leader's jersey very early, and race aggressively, but this race is three weeks long, and in the Vuelta we tried to say calm and take it as late as possible," Yates explained on Friday.
