Kazakh National Champion Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) has taken the victory at the queen stage of the Tour of Turkey and he sits at the top of the General Classification.

Lutsenko stayed with the main group up until the last climb of the day and as the attacks increased in the last kilometre, the rider took his chances and launched a powerful move that nobody could follow.

"It was a really hard and long stage," Lutsenko commented at the end of the stage. "I had good legs and at the top of the final climb, I sprinted for a victory. I’m happy with this victory and for taking the leader jersey at my last race in this season.

"It is important for my team and me. I want to thank all my teammates for a good job for me during the whole day. We have two more important days here in Turkey and we will do our best to keep the leader jersey until the final podium in Istanbul."
