The Yates Brothers' Big Weekend
March 12, 2018, 12:00 am

It's the time of spring where the stage racers start showing their stuff at two iconic week-long events. 

After a slew of hot and sunny stages races in the Middle East, the professional peloton spends much of March in the rain and wet of Europe, including tilts at Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico. Two of our favorite riders to watch on Michelton-Scott are the twin brothers from the UK, Adam and Simon Yates. Both have been billed and groomed as future Grand Tour winners, and while both have won the Best Young Rider jersey at the Tour de France, a break-through stage race win has eluded both. 

Until this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, with Simon at Paris-Nice and Adam taking on the mountains of Tirreno-Adratico, the WorldTour saw double on the biggest days of the month's biggest stage race. On Saturday, in a driving rainstorm in France, Simon Yates took the stage win and the leader's jersey with a dramatic attack in the final kilometers of a 16km long climb. He would end up losing Paris-Nice on Sunday by just four seconds after the team spent the entire stage fending off attacks from team after team and rider after rider. 

Unbeknownst to his brother in France, Adam was keeping the Yates name on the winner's list down in what is usually a warm and sunny affair in Italy. Instead of a week of good weather, Stage Five of Tirreno was yet another in a race of rain, wind, and very tough conditions. Perhaps that cold and wet is a recipe for success for the Yates, because Adam spent the day of climbing at the front of a lead group that included some of the best stage racers in the world, including Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas, Mikel Landa, and a host of others. Like his brother, Adam timed his attack perfectly, and while the other GC men looked at each other, he was up the hill and up the road en route to victory. Maybe it was Adam's 30 minute workout with GCN earlier this winter, but both he and Simon are looking ahead to a huge season! 

Michelton-SCOTT usually opt for the featherweight climbing bike at their disposal from Scott, the Addict RC. Draped in Shimano Di2 and plenty of handsome parts, the 2018 edition of this bike is one of the lightest iterations of the rig since the bike was unveiled some years ago. It's a bike that offers plenty of build options to suit any rider's needs, and we always keep one or two on the floor so you can get a feel for one of the most well-rounded bikes available. (One of our favorites is the new Addict Gravel!) 

We're wishing the Yates boys and all the pros better weather for the rest of the month, and make sure you swing by to see the latest road, gravel, and mountain options from Scott right here at City Bike Shop.
