Adam Yates, riding for Tadej Pogacar’s UAE Emirates team, took the first yellow jersey of the 2023 Tour de France after an extraordinary breakaway with his twin brother, Simon, on the hilly 182km circuit based on Bilbao in northern Spain.
Chased by a select group of favourites on the descent of the final climb, the Côte de Pike, Adam Yates was joined by his brother, leader of the Jayco AlUla team, on the approach to the finish, but climbed clear.
