Simon Yates just short of stage win in Tirreno-Adriatico

Heading to the finish of stage 4 of Tirreno-Adriatico on the climb to Prati di Tivo, Team BikeExchange leader Simon Yates could see UAE Team Emirates’ Tadej Pogačar so tantalisingly close but the Tour de France winner remained just out of reach and claimed the stage win and race lead on Saturday. 

The defending champion of the race admitted he missed his chance at salvaging this year’s race by playing a tactical waiting game after Pogačar’s long-range attack.
