Yates repeats victory in Turin and Carapaz wears pink

MADRID, 21 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The British cyclist Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco) achieved victory this Saturday in the fourteenth stage of the Giro d'Italia, 147 kilometers between Santena and Turin, in which he dealt the final blow to his breakaway companions to be crowned alone, while the Spanish 'Juanpe' López (Trek-Segafredo) said goodbye to the 'pink jersey' in favor of the Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz (INEOS Grenadiers).

Yates, winner of the Budapest time trial, jumped out of the group of escapees, where he was accompanied by Carapaz, the Australian Jai Hindley (Bora-hansgrohe) and the Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana Qazaqstan), with four kilometers to go and managed to win with 15 seconds ahead of the oceanic and the new leader, second and third respectively.

The transalpine round will continue this Sunday with the dispute of the fifteenth stage, an alpine day in Valle d'Aosta with 178 kilometers between Rivarolo Canavese and Cogne. The riders will face three long climbs to three first category passes: Pila, Verrogne and Cogne.
