He also took Britain's impressive streak of consecutive Grand Tour victories to five; although it won't be lost on British cycling aficionados that it was the first British win outside of Team Sky. Thanks to their multi-million pound budget and ability to attract the best cyclists for specific roles and races, Sky are considered the 'Real Madrid' of the professional peloton.
Sky, who formed on the back of the success enjoyed by Britain's all-conquering world and Olympic track squad, would be forgiven for ignoring Yates' obvious talents. Yates was only 17 years old when Sky formed in with the ambition to "win the Tour de France, clean, with a British rider within five years".
While Bradley Wiggins was on route to achieving that objective within three years, in , Yates was a budding track rider whose efforts earned him a place on British Cycling's Olympic Programme. Yates, Froome's teammate at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, won his first world title on the track three years later, in the points race. The same year, Yates offered a glimpse of his road racing instincts, too. Competing for the Great Britain national squad at the Tour de l'Avenir -- considered a 'mini Tour de France' for riders aged under -- Simon Yates won stage five, ahead of his twin brother Adam, who also rides for Mitchelton.
Yates made sure it was no fluke by winning the next day's stage, on his way to a 10th-place finish overall.
Those successes, ironically, signalled Yates' potential as a Grand Tour winner well ahead of Froome, and Thomas. At the Tour of Britain later that season, Yates took what was his biggest career win when he sprinted clear of a select group of strong climbers which included Wiggins and Colombian Nairo Quintana to claim victory on stage six. With spaces on Team Sky at a premium, Yates joined the Orica-GreenEdge outfit in -- a move that has indirectly led to his most recent successes.
Former Orica sporting director Matt White holds the position at Yates' current team Mitchelton, and has seen the slightly-built Englishman build an impressive portfolio of results in the seasons since.

His family, including foster daughter Lila, adored him, but some blamed him for the accident that killed a young co-worker.
“Shadow in the Sky” is a Pathfinder Adventure Path scenario designed for four 1st-level characters. By the end of Golarion's latest heroes do their job at the climax of Second event that created the Inner Sea 10, years ago and brought. Shadows in the Sky reviews from BBC Springwatch's Chris Packham, BBC re- established Cornish choughs while filming for Coast last year – and I have to.
Vera learns that he was in frequent touch with Hannah, a young runaway, though solely as a platonic helper, but then it transpires that they actually had a very different relationship, and another person in that relationship could well be Owen's killer. Written by don minifie Vera and Aidan walk into a troubled family in "Shadows in the Sky," the last episode of season 5.
A man, Owen, is found, face up, at the bottom of a car park. Did he commit suicide? Or was he pushed? From the way he fell, it looks to Vera like he was pushed. In the investigation that follows, the man had problems at his job. A man died on his watch, after he claimed he had done the required safety checks.
The man's father is seeking damages, but the case has been closed in favor of the company. Owen's family consists of a wife, a son, and a young girl about to be adopted by them after they had fostered her for some time. A murder investigation puts the adoption in danger, but Vera can't leave anyone out of her investigation. His son is convinced that his father was having an affair, and a young woman he was spending time with, Hannah Ferris, is questioned. But it's all more complicated than that.
Really interesting story and not easily figured out. The landscape in this episode is beautiful, but so spare and desolate.
Somehow it matches the show's atmosphere, though I find Vera has lightened up considerably over the years. Enjoy a night in with these popular movies available to stream now with Prime Video.
