Voeckler claims final stage and overall win in Tour de Yorkshire

Free Pass

Thomas Voeckler (Direct Energie) proved that he is not ready for retirement yet as he claimed a magnificent stage win and the overall victory on the final day of the Tour de Yorkshire.

Having rejoined Nicolas Roche (Sky) on the descent from the final climb, he stayed calm in the finale to beat his rival in the two-rider sprint, with Adam Yates (Orica-GreenEDGE) winning the sprint for third.

As most of the contenders had started the stage equal on time, Voeckler also took the overall victory with a 6-second advantage over Roche, with Turgis benefiting from bonus seconds in the stage to take third, 7 seconds further adrift. Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) won the points jersey and Nathan Haas (Dimension Data) was the best climber.
