Twin brother of Simon, Adam Yates has excelled in his first season as a pro. A solid start to the season hit a peak when he won the mountainous Tour of Turkey in a fashion that defied his age.

He then went on to register one of the greatest rides by a neo pro in the last ten years with sixth place at the Critérium du Dauphiné that included all the Tour de France favourites.

Adam was then rested by his team while his twin brother Simon tackled the Tour de France in his debut season. Adam went on to ride and finish his first Grand Tour at the 2014 Vuelta a España.

Major results: 2014 Tour of Turkey
