Greipel centimetres away from first win for Israel Start-Up Nation at Tour of Turkey



André Greipel came as close as it’s possible to get to a stage victory on stage 6 of the Tour of Turkey in Marmaris on Friday afternoon, missing out by a centimetre margin to Alpecin-Fenix’s Jasper Philipsen.

The German veteran took advantage of a stellar lead-out from his Israel Start-Up Nation team in the final kilometre of the stage, the fifth sprint of the race so far. After launching at 150 metres to go with five other sprinters poised to jump from behind, Greipel fell just short of taking his team’s fourth win of 2021.
