Paris - British climber Adam Yates pulverised the opposition on the tough, final ascent of stage three of the UAE Tour, winning by over a minute and taking the overall race lead on Tuesday.

"I attacked maybe a little too early, but in the end I felt good," said Yates, whose win gives him a 1min 07sec lead in the overall.

"Also tomorrow I heard a rumour there are going to be crosswinds, so we'll see."

Yates came fourth at the 2016 Tour de France and is targeting the Grand Boucle this summer where he will lead the Australian team ahead of his brother Simon.
