Simon Yates strengthens Giro d'Italia hand with stage 11 victory

Simon Yates celebrates winning stage 11 of the Giro d'Italia Simon Yates is only the second British rider after Mark Cavendish to win multiples stages in the same Giro

Nelson cyclist George Bennett has finished 12th on the latest stage of the Giro d'Italia to maintain his sixth place overall.

"I was going to go for the bonus sprint because I need to gain time on Dumoulin but, when I saw Pinot getting a lead out, I went past him", Yates said.

Yates does not carry a calculator, but he will be doing the math when he is racing.

The riders knew the stage would be decided in the last 5km, and after an undulating day they attacked the finish with ferocity.

He won his second stage and celebrated his second victory in four days in the pink leader's jersey.

A late attack in the final couple of kilometres of stage 11 enabled Mitchelton-Scott's Simon Yates of Britain to claim his second stage win of the Giro d'Italia. Tom Dumoulin (Netherlands, Sunweb) - 0,023. He underscored his intentions to win a second consecutive Giro.

While it would be extremely premature to extrapolate too much from the skirmish in the final 1,500 metres or so of stage 11, it would also be remiss to dismiss its relevance for the harsher tests still to come, not least because the afternoon also appeared to confirm the downward trajectory of some of the pre-race favourites, with Chris Froome (Team Sky) conceding another 40 seconds. "I could lose a lot of time".

"I'm not 100 per cent obviously after all the issues I've had on the right, but I'm getting there and I'm optimistic I'm going to come right".

Direct previous time trial comparisons are hard to come by. I'm not scared of the third week; I'm scared of the time trial.

"It was the most aggressive stage I've seen for a while", said Yates. "But first, there's this weekend".

"Chaves just had a bad moment on the first climb of the day".

The four-time Tour de France victor now trails his fellow Briton by three minutes and 20 seconds as his hopes of winning the race continue to fade.

"It's not a two-way battle, because there are four to five guys who are still close".

The Dutch rider, who is reigning world time trial champion, will have an opportunity to take time from Yates on next Tuesday's 32.4 kilometre test against the clock on next Tuesday's Stage 16.
