Helping His Brother Out TDF19-76
The last road stage it was Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) spreading his arms wide in victory. He is a good bit down on the general classification than his twin brother Adam, so it fell to him to drop back and try and pace the leader of Mitchelton-Scott back into the peloton. The aggressive pace being set on the way up the Col du Soulor had put many a man in difficulty. It appears that the pace would be the end of Adam Yates' dreams of winning the Tour. There is still the climb to the top of the Tourmalet to come in this stage!
