Adam Yates wins GP Industria & Artigianato

Adam Yates (Orica-Scott) won GP Industria & Artigianato for the second time on Sunday, outsprinting an elite group of climbers in the 200km Italian one-day race. 

Yates was part of an six-man group that sneaked away after the day's initial breakaway was caught. The Briton used his savvy and patience to let other riders in his group attack before launching his own perfectly timed move in the finale.

"I wasn't lucky, but I'm not renowned as a sprinter, so it's a good win for me," Yates said. "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."

Yates previously won the race in 2014.

A group of four formed off the front after about an hour of racing.When the race approached the San Baronto climb for the first of four ascents in the final 90km, the leaders had an advantage of nearly five minutes. Orica went to the front from there and started brining the gap down regularly until the quartet was back in the fold on the penultimate lap.

With the breakaway back in the fold and less than 20km remaining, fresh attacks started launching front he reduced bunch before Yates slipped away with Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac), Richard Carapaz (Movistar Team), Mattia Cattaneo (Androni Giocattoli), Egan Bernal (Androni Giocattoli) and Simon Clarke (Cannondale-Drapac). Yates launched several attacks, as did the others, on the final ascent, but none could shake free from the group, setting up Yates' sprint win.

Orica-Scott director Neil Stephens said it was a "fantastic day" for his team.

"The boys were superb throughout," Stephens said. "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 [Haig] and Rob [Power] 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."
