Antalya - Elmali 153.5 km
General classification day in Turkey with an uphill finish. It's the same finish to Elmali that produced brilliant racing last year albeit with a crappy aftertaste. Hopefully we get the excitement without the morons today.
Bosporus Bet: Rory Sutherland
The list of people with even decent uphill capabilities in this race is roughly as long as the list of brilliant Pat McQuaid UCI decisions. Even so there are a few capable spaniards and clombians plus one or two others. You would assume this is the kind of jobs Saxo brought in Sutherland for though. Hopefully his form is better than his Ardennes results indicate.
