Yates does enough in final time trial to secure overall victory,

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) produced a great performance in the Time Trial, enough to hold off Geraint Thomas (Ineos), who only managed to regain 22 of the 39 seconds needed to beat Yates as overall winner.

Yates, who specializes in climbing, finished 17th on the final 10km time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto.

Posting the fourth fastest time on the stage, Thomas overhauled Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) to finish second overall and Majka third.
