Yates Climbs into Catalunya Lead

INEOS Grenadiers (United Kingdom) - Press Release: Volta a Catalunya - Stage 3 » Canal Olimpic de Catalunya › Vallter 2000, 203.1km.

Adam Yates took a dominant climbing victory at Vallter 2000 to move into the race lead at the Volta a Catalunya.

The Brit claimed his first victory as a Grenadier in style, taking a 13-second solo victory, but crucially moving into a 45-second overall lead.

The team had a number of cards to play on the steep climb, with Richard Carapaz following accelerations before Yates launched his own move with 5km to go.

After dislodging Sepp Kuss (Jumbo-Visma) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Yates was able to replicate his stage victory from 2019 in Spain.

Geraint Thomas finished fourth, 31 seconds back, while Richie Porte took ninth, but did enough to move into second place overall. Thomas sits fourth to make it a Grenadiers 1-2-4, with another summit finish to follow on Thursday.

Volta a Catalunya overall standings:

  1. Adam Yates (INEOS Grenadiers) 9:44:21
  2. Richie Porte (INEOS Grenadiers) +45"
  3. Joao Almeida (Deceunick-Quick-Step) +50"
  4. Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) +53"
  5. Wilco Keldermam (Bora-Hansgrohe) +1:03"
