The push started in the individual time trial, when the three Ineos riders all featured in the top 10. Then, Yates took the race lead by soloing to victory on Vallter 2000 on stage 3.
With tactical superiority, there was little challenge to Yates' lead as João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quickstep) faded from third overall to seventh on the next stage to Port Ainé.
Almeida held on to win the young riders' classification, with a resurgent Esteban Chaves (BikeExchange) winning a stage and the points and mountains classifications. Ineos of course won the teams classification.
