Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey
Stage 2: Alanya to Antalya - Stage Details

Danish neo-pro Magnus Cort was ORICA-GreenEDGE’s top finisher in another bunch sprint on stage two of the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey.

The Australian outfit contributed to the control of an early breakaway, largely courtesy of the pulling power of Canadian Christian Meier, before preparing for the sprint only to lose their way in a technical final.

Cort finished in 30th position behind winner Mark Cavendish (Etixx Quick-Step) who claimed his second stage. Caleb Ewan rolled through on group time in 119th.

“After two easy days, the end is always quite difficult because there are a lot of riders still fresh so it’s really hectic,” sport director Laurenzo Lapage said.
