Simon Hopes To Not Go 'Mano a Mano' With Adam

Simon Yates Doesn't Want To Go 'Mano a Mano' With Adam

Mar 1, 2021

For the first time in their professional career, Simon and Adam Yates find themselves on different teams.

Adam transferred to Ineos for the 2021 season while Simon remained at Team Bike Exchange.

Simon plans to race both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in 2021, though he will only target the general classification at the Giro.

It is likely that at some point this season, the identical twins and climbing specialists will duke it out on a mountain summit, a scenario Simon is wary of.
