Eduard Prades was second and, thanks to bonus seconds, becomes the new leader of the race. Thus, Alexey Lutsenko finishes the race second overall, Nathan Haas closes the top three of the strongest riders of Tour of Turkey 2018.

- This race was not easy. The last two stages were very nervous, there were a lot of attacks, since the gaps were only a few seconds and all the main competitors were very close in the overall standings. Of course, it is pity that I could not win, but the race is a race. Nevertheless, I am pleased with the victory at the hardest and longest mountain stage of the race. This is my last race in this season, and to finish it on the podium is also a good result. In addition, this season was another step towards my development as a leader for the week races with a overall victory at the Tour of Oman at the very beginning of the year and a podium and queen stage victory at the Tour of Turkey at the end, - concluded Alexey Lutsenko after the finish.

Thus, starting his season with a victory in the overall standings at his first race, the Tour of Oman, Alexey makes a great season, winning the stage at the Tour of Austria, Kazakh national championship, two gold medals at the Asian Games and, in conclusion, taking victory at the queen stage and second place in General classification of the Tour of Turkey.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
