Colombia's Esteban Chaves victorious in Giro d'Italia's Mount Etna stage

Colombia's rider of team Mitchelton Scott Johan Esteban Chaves smiles in Beer Sheva prior to the start of the 3rd stage of the 101st Giro d'Italia

He came together at the end with Yates, who attacked from the select peloton of overall contenders in the last two kilometres and indicated to Chaves to take the win.

"I said to him (Chaves) as soon as I caught him that he could take the stage". I felt good so I took my chance to ride across.

With Chaves confidently ahead on his own, Yates bided his time amid a series of further skirmishes before pulling away in commanding fashion to join the Colombian in the final kilometre.

"I am happy to have made it through the stage without any major issues and to have been up there with the main GC guys bar Chaves and Yates - who rode an fantastic race today". "This is the best start for the Giro d'Italia.

I didn't really have to do anything, I could sit in the wheels and save energy", Yates said after becoming the first Brit to wear the Maglia Rosa since Mark Cavendish in 2013. The Briton's vicious attack with 1,500 metres remaining saw him put 26 seconds into Chris Froome (Sky), Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) et al., but he granted the stage win to Chaves at the summit. How unbelievable is that? It's a dream to have the stage, pink jersey and blue jersey.
