Great Britain's Simon Yates made it back-to-back wins at the Tour de l’Avenir with victory on stage six in Châtel.

The 21-year-old followed Thursday’s win in Morzine, where he finished ahead of twin brother Adam, with another exceptional ride on the 125.5-kilometre parcours.

In the closing stages, Yates was clear of the peloton with Bakhtiyar Kozhatayev (Kazakhstan), Matej Mohoric (Slovenia) and Clement Chevrier (France) and proved the strongest of the quartet to the line with Mohoric second and Chevrier third.

It takes the Bury-born rider's Tour de l'Avenir stage win tally to three, having won stage six in 2011.

Brother Adam remains in second place in the general classification behind Spain’s Ruben Fernandez.
