The 4th stage of the Tour of Turkey ended in a mass sprint and the winner was yet again, Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma – QuickStep). The Manxman claimed his 3rd stage victory of the race by beating Maximiliano Richeze (Lampre-Merida) to the line. Cavendish’s leadout was executed to such perfection that his final leadout man, Mark Renshaw was able to hold on for 3rd. Kristian Sbaragli from Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung had targeted stage 4 a number of days ago already and the young Italian didn’t disappoint. After some stellar work done by Youcef Reguigui over the final 4km’s, Sbaragli was dropped off in 6th position.
