The fight of the Yates brothers: “It was a dream scenario”

A first stage in the Tour de France to decide the yellow jersey and a fight between brothers. The British twins, born on August 7, 1992, had a situation that they imagined throughout their lives, without leaving aside the rivalry and that each one belongs to a team, although from 2014 to 2020 they were teammates. “I don’t even know what to say. Fighting with Simon here was a dream scenario, ”says Adam, and it is that they are both lovers of the Basque Country. The one from the UAE prevailed during his career in a stage of the Itzulia and in the Clásica de San Sebastián, while Simon Yates also did the same on Basque soil, since he is a double winner in Ordizia.

“At first I didn’t know if I should work with Simon but I asked on the radio and they told me yes, go ahead”, added Adam at the finish line after kissing his partner, who did not take off his mask until then, and it is that the UAE showed that they are very strong. They take care of all the details. In the run-up to the race, the Emirates team placed the first yellow jersey this year as the second trick in case Pogacar was not at 100% of his battered wrist, although the feelings of the Slovenian were good. After a great job from the team, including Adam himself, crowned Pike in first place with Vingegaard at the wheel. After the test, in the descent towards Bilbao they were neutralized by the few meters they had for rent.

“I knew Simon was fine. On the way down I tried to do my best and I saw that my brother was coming from behind. I wish it had been easier because there was a time when I almost gave in.”Adam explained with a smile. Since 2011, with the Schlecks, two brothers had not finished first and second on the Tour. In third place came Pogacar, celebrating as if he had won after the success of his teammate, and it is a warning from the UAE: they are here, and the Jumbo already knows it. There are still 20 games ahead, and although Tadej’s team they continue to give up favoritism to Vingegaard, current champion, they have struck the first blow on the table.
