Mareczko beats Greipel in Tour of Turkey’s fifth stage

Jakub Mareczko timed his sprint perfectly in the fifth stage from Tour of Turkey, to get the jump on Andre Greipel who failed to make up much ground and had to settle for second, with Manuel Belletti making it two Southeast riders on the podium. Pello Bilbao (Caja Rural) retained the lead on the eve of the queen stage.

Pello Bilbao finished safely in the bunch and so retained his 5-second advantage over his teammate Jose Goncalves. He now faces the biggest test in the short, intense queen stage which has a flat start and a big category 1 climb in the early part before the riders reach a potentially windy plateau. In the end, they will tackle the tough summit finish in Elmali where they face the climb known as the Turkish Alpe d’Huez.
