Adam Yates becomes the first Briton to win the white jersey of the Tour de France


In just his second attempt, Adam Yates today became the first British rider to win the best young rider classification at the Tour de France.

The 23-year-old rode an impressive race to finish in fourth place overall, well above expectation, giving ORICA-BikeExchange its best ever general classification result at the Tour.

Three weeks of racing saw the Australian outfit top the team classification over the first few stages before Yates won the white jersey on stage seven and held it all the way to the finish in Paris.

“We came here not really riding for the overall,” said a smiling Yates in Paris. “It just kind of happened and the whole team have been incredible in their support, all the riders and the staff who have worked so hard everyday.”

“The future is ahead of me and I’m sure I will be back fighting for a podium place or even challenging for the yellow jersey. I will try my best, you never what will happen, but I’m going to continue working hard and do everything possible to improve.”
