Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) says he has "good legs" and now "just needs a bit of luck" in order to claim victory in Sunday's Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

The 26-year-old crashed out of La Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday, a race he had said he was "high in confidence" for. His 2019 season so far has seen him achieve two overall second place finishes at Tirreno-Adriatico and Volta a Catalunya as well as picking up a stage win in the Tour of the Basque Country.
