Tour of Turkey – 2nd victory for Andre Greipel

Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) was the second stage victory in this year’s Tour of Turkey. Adrian Kurek, who rode in the first group of riders try to fight for the best place at the finish.

The fifth stage of the Tour of Turkey with a length of 183 km, ran from Marmaris to Bodrum. The route of this stage was highly variable, ranging from very easy (8% slope), the first driveway on the premium category 1 climbs up to the last one, a 60-kilometer stretch where the road was heavily hilly.

The peloton hit the road race from the promenade in Marmaris and just after leaving the city began the first hill. The 25 kilometer route peloton rode together. When I first started to climb the mountain started strong premium selection of the pack, which eventually ended up dividing it into two parts.
