Tom Stewart and Matt Holmes sealed a pair of top-20 positions on general classification on the third and final day of the Tour de Yorkshire, in a performance team manager Dave Povall described as a “happy and proud moment.”

Stewart and Holmes were mixing it with World Tour opposition as the race entered a series of viscious climbs and held their own as the head of the race took shape.

With two first category and two second category climbs in the final 70-kilometers, only the strongest riders would see the front of the race as a multitude of competitors were spread across the hills of Yorkshire – and some were forced to withdraw. With constant attacks from Team Sky, the peloton continued to implode. A very select group of 24 riders made their way south towards Scarborough – Tom Stewart and Matt Holmes remaining at the front.

Furious attacks from the front whittled the group further and Stewart joined the chasing pack as Nicolas Roche (Team Sky) and Thomas Voekler (Direct Energie) broke from the front to take the stage and GC honours. DS Dave Povall was quick to praise the performance across the team, following three days of highly successful racing, during which a Madison Genesis jersey was always in the thick of the action.

“We’re a British based Continental team racing against some of the biggest and strongest teams in the world. Over the course of the last three days we’ve shown we have some young, promising riders taking opportunities and contesting for results and the race itself.”

“It was not just in the breakaways – we had aspirations for the general classification and each day we had a plan to maximise our chances for that, and pretty much, up until the last 30-kilometres it was done exactly how we wanted it. All in all, I’m really happy and proud of everyone with what they’ve achieved.”
