The Wolfpack, who have already won 11 stages in the past, still hope to increase their total. Five of the eight stages seem to be promised to sprinters. It is in this perspective that the team also counts in its ranks Mark Cavendish, 3rd in the Scheldt GP on Wednesday, but also Shane Archbold, Alvaro Hodeg, Stijn Steels and Iljo Keisse. Back in the foreground, Cavendish hopes to clinch a success behind which he runs in February 2018. ‘Manxman’ has already claimed 7 stage victories in Turkey.
“This 56th Tour of Turkey offers a lot of stages that should end in a sprint and we can’t wait to compete in them. There will be opportunities for our fast men, who can trust a strong team, able to control the race and take them well.“, added the sporting director.
