Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano) claimed his third victory of the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey with an impressive sprint in Istanbul. In a grandstand finish, the German saw off the challenge of Andrea Guardini (Astana) and Andrew Fenn (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) to take the win.

There was no change in the final general classification, as Mustafa Sayar (Torku Sekerspor) sealed overall victory. The Turk finished the race 41 seconds ahead of Eritrea’s Natnael Berhane (Europcar) and 44 seconds clear of Yoann Bagot (Cofidis).

Kittel was pleased to rebound from a less than ideal start to the race to take home a hat-trick of victories.

“It was quite a heavy week with the heavy crash on stage 2. I was even not sure if I could start the next day, but fortunately I was able to carry on and look back now on good week with three wins," Kittel said.

“We stayed in front coming into the finish and the boys were in a good position. We were maybe a little too early but we are at a level now that we can deal with these kind of situations. I am really proud of this week.

“The team as a whole have made big improvements from last year, and I feel that I’ve made a step myself too, but all the riders became stronger and it showed in the way that we handle situations. This is what this team is about and it is great to see it happen."

Overall race winner Sayar was proud to deliver the final victory to a home team. "First of all I m very happy for myself and for my team that we won the biggest Tour organized in Turkey. Thanks to everybody, my teammates and everyone coming here to support us, my team and myself. This Tour was very hard. On the other hand, we were lucky that the profile of some stages were adequate, suited us and favoured us. Overall, I'm very happy."

Will there be a new winner by the end of May, or will Sayer be signed up by a top team for the tour ???
Edd O Mara More than 1 year ago
If the testing procedures produce a positive test on Sayer which I hope they will, he is looking at a two year ban minimum. Then again I would not be the least bit surprised if he does not fail a test as these guys are pretty good at cheating the system. They know what they are doing. They are nearly always one step ahead of the testers. We will see what happens from that respect. If he ever ends up signing for a top pro tour team it will definitely not be Team Argos-Shimano. In order to continue to cycle at the level he has reached in a short space of time albeit through doping he would have to continue to dope in order to produce results at a top pro tour team.
wigvelo More than 1 year ago
Why do you hope they produce a positive test? My hope could not be futher from yours. I hope he is clean and a non doper. Unfortunatley my gut feeling may be similar in that, his M.O. is similar to other past dopers, ie come from no where in a team that seems to be happy to get results and not ask too many questions. I dont understand posters who wish for a guilty verdict knowing next to nothing about the facts first. While you may be correct in the end, I will not cast him as being guilty until its proven he is.

Saxo Tinkoff 17th!!!??????
igamogam More than 1 year ago
Is it just me or does Sayar look a like Floyd Landis in some shots. I hope the resemblance is only skin deep.
PJK1972 More than 1 year ago
Turning that big gear and just riding away from everyone else on the queen stage was very impressive. I am disappointed (but not surprised) people want to go straight to doping allegations. Why shouldn't Turkey produce a good stage racer? I'm with Wiqvelo on this one.
