Sasha Weemaes. “I am very happy to have concluded the team's very hard work in the first stage of the Tour of Turkey. And also very happy with my performance in what was only my 5th day of racing of the season. So I came back in good condition after a start to the season disrupted by an injury that took time to heal. I resumed competition in Bruges-De Panne on March 20. The first stage of the Tour of Turkey was very fast, with a final average of 45 km/h. The goal was to place myself well in the last 20 kilometers. My teammates helped me. There were two turns before the finish, important for positioning yourself. I came out of the last corner in fourth position. I launched my sprint on the right but Jakobsen was already in front, he was the strongest. This 2nd place bodes well for the rest of this Tour of Türkiye. We're going back tomorrow with the same great motivation! »
