Tour de France 2017: Simon Yates to contest race after missing 2016 event

Simon Yates

Simon Yates will contest the 2017 Tour de France after missing last year’s race because of a failed drugs test.

The Briton served a four-month ban as a result of the failed test, which was blamed on an administrative error over his use of an asthma inhaler.

The 24-year-old was also expected to miss this year’s race as his Orica-Scott team managed his workload, but that decision has been reversed.
