Tour of Turkey. Stage 2. Riccardo Minali reaches the podium

At the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey has been held the second and the longest stage of the race – 205 km from Kumlica to Fethyie.

Despite a few climbs during the way from start to finish, the stage ended with a massive sprint, won by Irish rider Sam Bennett. Astana’s rider Riccardo Minali did a very good sprint, taking a nice 3rd podium place. This is his fourth podium place in this season.

- It was a long stage with a very fast final. This is my first ever podium in a WorldTour race, so I am very happy with it. That’s a good result for me. I would like to thank my team, the guys did a great job to support and help me during this day. Tomorrow, we will try again, and I hope to fight for a win, - said Riccardo Minali.

Unfortunately, Astana rider Sergei Chernetckii crashed out badly during today stage. He was forced to abandon the race. Immediately after the crash, he was moved to the hospital for a medical checking. A few stitches were applied to his chin. Tomorrow, Chernetckii will go home for further recovery.
