Britain’s Adam Yates finished second on his Ineos debut at the UAE Tour despite crashing heavily during today’s final stage in Abu Dhabi.

Yates finished 35 seconds behind overall winner Tadej Pogacar after his rivals slowed up to allow him to be treated for cuts to his face.

There appeared to be a tangle between the Ineos riders in the peloton with about 40km to go with Yates landing face-first on the tarmac.

The collision happened on a straight stretch of road as Yates and several of his teammates and riders from other teams fell around him.
