Tour of Turkey ends with neutralization of final stage

28 April 2024

The final stage of the Presidential Tour of Turkey was neutralized after rainy conditions made for slippery wet roads.

The Istanbul stage was meant to be raced over 105.4 kilometres, but in a similar way to 2022, rain made for unsafe conditions and the decision was made for the peloton to ride a procession stage.

Team Novo Nordisk leaves the race with three top ten results and several breakaways.

General Manager, Vassili Davidenko:

“This is a race we have been coming to for a number of years and we always enjoy the hospitality. Once again we’ve managed to inspire the diabetes community and show what’s possible after a top performance from the guys. Matyas picked up 4th and 5th on two stages with Andrea 9th on stage 5.”

“At the same time we got to spend time with employees from Novo Nordisk employees and we always love these collaborations at races and bring the team closer in order to inspire each other. We’re already looking forward to returning here next year.”
