Danish neo-pro Magnus Cort has rounded up the top ten on the eighth and final stage of the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey in Istanbul.
The result gives ORICA-GreenEDGE four top ten results from the eight days racing, including three for Cort and a second place on stage one for fellow neo-pro Caleb Ewan.
Canadian Christian Meier finished as the Australian outfits top rider on general classification in 17th position, despite committing to a support role each day.
“We tried in the sprints and we came twice really close with a young team,” Lapage said.
“For the overall it’s a bit disappointing but without a designated leader like Adam (Yates) last year, we knew it would not have been easy.”
