Nobody could promptly react to Yates’ turn with 700m to go on the lofty climb of Les Praeres, with even late counter-assaults from Miguel Angel Lopez and Alejandro Valverde, insufficient to prevent him from taking the win.

The Briton recovered the red jersey with race pioneer Jesus Herrada dropped inside the last 30km of the hilly 171km phase.

Nairo Quintana who had been the most dynamic of the GC contenders on the last climb, seemed to have spent way too much energy. As, he could only finish 5th, seven seconds behind Yates with Thibaut Pinot pipping him to the line.

Yates presently drives the generally rankings by 20 seconds over Valverde in second and 25 seconds over Quintana in third place.
