British cyclist Adam Yates will ride in the 2018 Tour de France, team Orica-Scott have announced.
The 25-year-old finished fourth in the 2016 race and was the white jersey winner for the best young rider.

The Bury-born cyclist said: "It feels good to be going back to the Tour de France and I am very excited about the challenges it will bring.
"The Tour will always be a special race for me having watched it growing up through to getting the opportunity to race it for the first time in 2015."
Simon Yates, Adam's twin brother, will double-up and focus on the Giro d'Italia and La Vuelta Espana along with Colombian Esteban Chaves.
