    The Peloton team in Turkey faced off with a ride of about 160 kilometers on Friday, which took riders from the seaside resort of Kusadasi to Manisa. The focus of the sixth stage was on the final, with an ascent of about 14 kilometers with an average gradient of 7 percent.

    He was our compatriot Jonas Rickart, recovering after suffering a broken collarbone, and two companions from an earlier trip, were the first to begin the difficult final climb.

    The road soon turned out to be too steep for Ricart, and the Ethiopian Abreha continued much longer. This made him a springboard for teammate Filippo Conca, who opened the debates with just over 10km to go. The Italian will not succeed either

    Perhaps the most active contestant in the final was Paul Double. With his motivation, the attack of Ecuadorian Harald Martin Lopez was nipped in the bud and an elite group of 3 riders was formed, including Eritrean Merhawi Kudus and Dutchman Frank van den Broek.

    The latter turns out to be the smartest and, above all, the strongest in the speed race of the three. Double immediately exploded and Kudus also had to quickly sit down again. Van den Broek thus achieved a double victory, with the stage win and the leader's jersey.
