Yates Solos to Stunning Final Stage Victory at Paris-Nice And wraps Up Second Place Overall

Team BikeExchange-Jayco (France) - Press Release: Briton Simon Yates soloed to a spectacular victory with an audacious late attack on the final stage of Paris-Nice today, securing second place overall, after eight days of hard-fought racing in France.

The 29-year-old stayed safe during the first three chaotic stages, before confirming his form with an impressive ride to fifth place on the time trial stage on day four. The Team BikeExchange-Jayco rider then tested the legs in the mountains, with a solid third-place finish atop the Col de Turnini, before heading into today’s final stage with a 47 second deficit to race leader Primoz Roglic.

Giving everything he had to try and crack his rivals, Yates launched a damaging attack on the final climb of the explosive stage around Nice, the Col d’Eze, leaving race leader Roglic and the other general classification contenders in his wake.
