Modolo sprints to victory in Tour of Turkey

Free Pass

After an excellent lead-out from Roberto Ferrari, Sacha Modolo jumped from wheel to wheel before launching his sprint perfectly in the fourth stage from Tour of Turkey, easily holding off Daniele Colli (Nippo-Vini Fantini) and Marco Zanotti (Parkhotel Valkenburg). Pello Bilbao (Caja Rural) retained the lead.

Unlike yesterday, there wasn’t much wind on the long journey from the mountains to the coastal city of Alanya where the sprinters have traditionally dominated and after a fast start, it was a controlled affair with Lotto Soudal and Caja Rural keeping a 6-rider break in check.

There were several splits in the finale but Pello Bilbao was always attentive to stay with the best and so he defended his 5-second advantage over teammate Jose Goncalves. He should have another relatively easy day tomorrow in stage 5 which is an almost completely flat run along the coast from Alanya to Kemer. There are no categorized climbs on the menu and unless the wind picks up, it looks like another day for a bunch sprint.
