The Briton Simon Yates (BikeExchange) took the 14th stage of the Giro alone on Saturday, very intense and eventful in the heat of Turin. The Olympic champion, the Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz (Ineos), donned the leader’s pink jersey after this tense 147-kilometre stage which caused significant gaps. Yates, already winner of the second stage time trial in Hungary, achieved his sixth stage success in the Giro. The Briton (29) lost his footing in the standings last Sunday in the Blockhaus. The 2018 Vuelta winner then focused on stage wins. On the line, Yates beat a trio of counter-attackers by about fifteen seconds. Australian Jai Hindley took second place ahead of Carapaz and Italian veteran Vincenzo Nibali (37). The Spaniard Juan Pedro Lopez, at the top of the classification since the 4th stage at Etna, lost more than four minutes.
