Tour of Turkey organisers look to rescue stage 1 with shortened sprint stage



After initially cancelling stage 1 of the Tour of Turkey due to heavy snowstorms the race organisers have put together a new and shorter route to replace their previous plans for Sunday’s opening stage. 

Weather permitting, the riders will now take part in a 74km stage that starts and finishes in Konya, with a third category climb included in a new-look profile that looks set to finish in a sprint.

All the new plans are still to be rubber-stamped and the weather remains a real concern with a 3° Celsius maximum temperate, as well as further rain and snow forecast overnight. Riders and the teams have been briefed.
