In the last, hard-contested mass sprint, the German finished on a place he had not yet landed on in the Tour of Turkey: fourth.
The eighth stage in Turkey unfolded in the same way as pretty much all the other stages: the breakaway didn’t stand a chance and the stage victory was contested by the teams with sprinters.
Throughout the whole stage race, Andre Greipel had been ISN’s team leader, enjoying the full support of his teammates. It resulted in a final spot just outside of the podium.
