Nico Denz and Matthew Walls claimed the top two spots for Bora-Hansgrohe in  stage 5 of the Tour of Turkey in a dangerously twisting, downhill, bunch sprint finish.

Denz took it on from the front with around two kilometres to go on a series of sweeping curves, crossing the line with Walls tucked in close behind. Cees Bol (Astana Qazaqstan) came up late for third.
