World news – Yates wins the week-long Volta in front of Porte


Briton Adam Yates won the week-long race Volta a Catalunya when the Ineos Grenadiers team achieved a 1-2-3 overall result in Barcelona.

Yates, who joined the British team this year, built their win on a third stage win in the mountains to land ahead of Australian Richie Porte and former Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas.

The trio finished the seventh and final stage on Sunday, the the Belgian Thomas De Gendt won after a breakaway, certainly in the peloton.

The four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome, who left Ineos-Grenadiers in the off-season for Israel-Start Up Nation, was never in the mix and landed with 53:50 behind Yates in 81st place overall.
