Runner up Jay Vine, who just moved to the pro ranks through the Zwift Academy, may quickly become a hot topic on the transfers market given his one-year contact with Alpecin-Fenix but the Tour of Turkey could also well be a springboard for overall winner José Manuel Diaz (Delko).

Three years ago his compatriot Eduard Prades won the race for Euskadi-Murias and then went on to sign with Movistar so Diaz entered the race with a clear picture of what a strong performance could do to help shape his career. That gave the 26-year-old rider one more reason to determinedly defend that one second lead on the overall so he could deliver his first GC victory.
