Adam Yates stormed to a stunning solo victory in sodden conditions to take the overall lead at Deutschland Tour.

Yates attacked on the early part of the final climb to pressure the other general classification contenders after fine pacing work by his teammates. 

The Grenadier held a strong pace and was able to reduce the lead group until he was the solo leader with 6,5km to go. 

Despite attacks coming from the group behind, Yates continued to push on to win in Schauinsland and take a 30 second GC advantage into the final stage.
