Adam Yates (Ineos-Grenadiers) has taken the second position at Milano-Torino, just behind Primoz Roglic.

The Briton was the first rider to try his luck during the last climb of the day at the Italian one-day competition and after the teams had to struggle with crosswinds that caused echelons.

The only rider that managed to bridge to Yates was time trial Olympic champion Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma). Although the Briton tried to keep with the Slovenian's rhythm, it proved to be impossible and he had to settle with the second position of the final podium.

"I had a good ride, but in the end the strongest guy won," said Yates. "The last few races, the Vuelta and then Emilia I kinda waited and you know Primoz, he just goes - like 500m to go, really explosive, so it’s hard to beat him, and in the end he still had the legs to beat me. In the end, he was the strongest guy in the race.

“Early on, big thanks to the guys as we got caught out a little bit in the wind. We were in a good position, but then a few guys from other teams dropped the wheel, so we were caught out and had to do a big chase. In the end we caught back up and I tried to do my thing on the last climb, i did the best I could but in the end not good enough. We’ll try again on Saturday.

"Lombardia is a big goal, the condition is there, I just need to pull it out of the bag. One more race on Saturday, hopefully I will be on the top step of the podium this time."
