Simon Yates will not take on the Tour de France in 2020, instead choosing to prioritise the Giro d’Italia and the Olympics.

“I’m excited to go back [to the Giro],” Yates added.

“It’s a great race. I enjoy being there. The style of racing suits me as well. I’ll have another crack.

“Of course it was my main goal last year and I didn’t pull it off, so I’d like to go there and give what I’ve got.

“The Giro is a race with a lot of charm and character – fans are passionate, the parcours are amazing and it always produces exciting aggressive racing which I enjoy.

“The 2020 route is a very traditional course with a lot of time trailing kilometers, and many high altitude mountain passes.

“We will have to prepare for anything to happen.”
