Yates to compete at Giro d’Italia

Vuelta a Espana winner Simon Yates has confirmed he is set to bid for more major glory at the Giro d’Italia in May.

“I’m looking forward to returning to the Giro d’Italia next year,” said Yates, who enjoyed three stage wins at this year’s Giro and spent 13 days in the pink jersey.

The Mitchelton-SCOTT rider looked on course to win the Giro until problems on stage 19 saw him run out of steam in losing 40 minutes as Chris Froome ultimately powered to victory.

“It’s a race I have great memories from this year, but it was one which also left a bitter taste in my mouth so I want to go back to try to finish the job off,” he said.

“I’m already working hard to arrive in great shape and I can’t wait for the season to begin.”

The Giro d’Italia gets under way on May 11 and finishes on June 2, less than four weeks before the start of the Tour de France.
