The 4th stage of the Tour of Turkey panned out just as most expected it to. The tough climb that came with just 10km to go saw a reduced group arrive over the top and then go on to contest the sprint. Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) was quickest with Daniele Colli (Nippo-Vini Fantini) 2nd and Daniele Ratto (United Healthcare) 3rd. It was Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung’s plan to make the racing hard today and the boys followed the procedure well. After an initial 6 rider move was brought back early on, 5 riders then went away. Once they hit a 45″ lead, Natnael Berhane jumped from.

How did Steve Cummings, Serge Pauwels, Natnael Berhane and Theo Bos get started with cycling? Well, they tell us in this short clip..

The 3rd stage of the Tour of Turkey would be the queen stage of the race with the finish situated at the top of the cat 1 climb to Elmali. Songezo Jim and Youcef Reguigui would both go on the attack before the climb and then Serge Pauwels finished the day off with 5th place on the stage. A great day for our MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung boys and Stiehl Photography captured it all..
