Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey
Stage 4: Fethiye to Marmaris - Stage Details

Danish neo-pro Magnus Cort has sprinted to fourth place from a depleted peloton on stage four of the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey.

Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) came from a long way back to claim his first victory of the Tour ahead of Daniele Colli (Nippo – Vini Fantini) and Daniele Ratto (United Healthcare).

ORICA-GreenEDGE began the day in support of Cort, recognising the 22-year-old’s ability to get over the final climb, which despite being unclassified saw many of the pure sprinters including teammate Caleb Ewan and two-time 2015 stage winner Mark Cavendish lose contact.

“We made the right plan today,” sport director Laurenzo Lapage said. “It showed the last climb was hard for the sprinters.”
