Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) led the Vuelta a España for four stages and won the Les Praeres stage today, but does not feel as thought he is dominating the race.

Yates features frequently at the front of these Grand Tours. He had the Giro d'Italia's pink jersey for 13 days this May and in the ongoing Vuelta a España, today racing its 14th stage, he wore the red jersey already for four stages. With his stage win, he is back on top.
