Yates wins week-long Volta ahead of Porte

Britain’s Adam Yates has won the week-long Volta a Catalunya race as the Ineos-Grenadiers team completed a 1-2-3 overall finish in Barcelona.

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

The trio finished safe in the peloton in Sunday’s seventh and last stage won by Belgian Thomas De Gendt from a breakaway.

Four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome, who left Ineos-Grenadiers for Israel-Start Up Nation during the off-season, was never in the mix and ended up 81st overall, 53:50 behind Yates.
