CN at their best.
eg. Astana - 11 LUTSENKO Alexey, 12 BIZHIGITOV Zhandos, 13 FOMINYKH Daniil, 16 MOSER Moreno and 17 TLEUBAYEV Ruslan - 5 riders who are enjoying the Tour of Turkey at the moment.


Oh for God’s sake.

Does anyone have an accurate start list? Are there any actually good sprinters taking part?

mmm ... not really. Sonny COLBRELLI and Sacha MODOLO are probably the best of the riders that are supposedly there.

is still only provisional, but will be updated as soon as they can.

The Turkey sprint was accidentally recorded before Milan Torino, so I watched it again. Postlberger took a monster turn from 1.5 km to 500 meters.

if CN want to publish start lists they should at least try to be accurate. The list says

The Tour of Turkey started on October 9, so no excuse for Astana.
Movistar published their team on October 9, so no excuse there.

Not a mod anymore, I can be critical, although I was never asked to sing a song. Mistakes happen. Kirby has a job. At least we get honest people, not perfect, giving news. Please reach out if you think you can contribute.

Procycling Stats have a startlist which seems more "realistic" :)

Some more startlist talk.
I'm assuming the - somewhat odd - numbering for the Chrono des Nations is simply the starting order backwards.
And love how several of these riders are one-man teams.

as the name suggests, this is not really about which teams they ride for
see
http://www.chronodesnations.com/liste-des-engages
for all teams/nations and start times

for the Hommes / Junior, what will be the time gap between Remco and the runner-up ? (26.45km)

5 Lotto Soudal riders (Tim Wellens, Tiesj Benoot, Thomas De Gendt, Jens Keukeleire and Maxime Monfort),in a break of 11! Team work! :)

The "Wellens in the rain" move has been neutralized. There is no break actually with some 70km to go.

Turkey stage three. The last climb saw action and splits in the peloton, but Bennett was near the front throughout. He won again, Richeze second, Degenkolb third. Hodeg got dropped on the climb. Degenkolb is either improving or he just likes the harder stages more. Bennett went a bit early and Richeze played it well, getting on his wheel and trying to come around but just didn’t have the speed. It’s a pity Gaviria isn’t there.

Tomorrow is the GC day and even “climby” sprinters like Bennett are going to be long dropped by the end, so there will be a new leader.

A very small peloton with 7 km to go in Gran Piemonte.

Long sprint from Colbrelli. He almost drifted off the front without trying before he really started to sprint. Easy win.

Nice to see Colbrelli win. He’s a good rider who profits when things get tough. It should be said though that he’d have won there even on a clown’s miniature tricycle. I think you’d have to go back to some edition of Catalonia to find a sprint race/stage with so many WT teams and so few sprinters.

It’s a bit weird in retrospect that QS sent both Hodeg and Gaviria to Turkey with Richeze rather than sending one here.
