Tour of Turkey Stage 3: Natnael Berhane Climbs To Victory
The Tour of Turkey turned out a fantastic stage of cycling yesterday as riders tackled the Queen Stage and it's difficult summit finish. If it's aggressive riding, steep slopes and out of the saddle attacks reminiscent of the 'old days' that you long for then this stage had it all including Eritrea's Natnael Berhane (Europcar) sprinting to the first victory by a sub-Saharan African cyclist in a Hors Categorie event on the UCI calendar. Here's the lung busting final 3km to get your juices flowing... enjoy.
