Short stage with mostly flat route finished with the massive sprint won by Maximiliano Richeze from Argentina.

- It was very short and fast stage, we rode 150 km in 3,5 hours. As it was expected, small group of 5 riders escaped from the start and sprinters teams always controlled the race. The breakaway was caught at 30 km to go and teams started to prepare their trains for the final sprint. Our goal for today was to stay at the front of the peloton and protect our leader from possible crashes and other bad lucks. It was quiet day for us, - said Daniil Fominykh after finish. 

Tomorrow is another flat stage of the race between the most popular for tourists Alanya and Antalya cities with the distance of 154,1 km, which will most likely finish with massive sprint.

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>
