Tour of Turkey
Stage 5: Marmaris - Turgutreis - Stage Details

It was another low profile day for ORICA-GreenEDGE on stage five of the Tour of Turkey as the peloton raced the tour’s longest and surprisingly tough stage from Marmaris to Turgutreis. In past editions of the Turkish tour, both escapees and strong sprinters have won this lumpy stage. Today the sprinters had their way as Elia Viviani (Cannondale) crossed the line triumphantly ahead of Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step).

Adam Yates finished safely in the bunch thanks to the work done by his teammates. The overall classification remains unchanged as Rein Taaramäe (Cofidis) continues to sit 6” ahead of the British neo-pro. Romain Hardy (Cofidis) is in third overall at 38”.

“The guys did a good job of looking after Adam today. Tomorrow we are going to race more aggressively to help Adam before the final three kilometre climb. We are looking forward to seeing how the stage unfolds.” - Assistant Sport Director Julian Dean
