Austrian rider of Bora-Hansgrohe (Germany), Felix Grossschartner won the 5th stage of the 55th Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey (TOUR 2019).



Although it was scheduled 164.1 kilometers, the finish of the Bursa-Kartepe stage was reduced 4 kilometers due to adverse weather conditions. Grossschartner won first place at this stage with 4 hours 17 minutes and 13 seconds.



Italian Valerio Conti of BAE Emirates (UAE) team came in second and Astana (Kazakhstan) team's Eritrean Merhawi Kudus finished third after riders had to climb the last 12 kilometers of the "Queen Stage" under windy and rainy weather conditions.



After these results, Grossschartner became the leader of the general classification with a duration of 20 hours and 43 minutes and 9 seconds. Being 19 seconds ahead of his closest rival heading into the final stage, 25-year-old Austrian rider thus took over the Turquoise Jersey from his team-mate, Irish Sam Bennett.



Following the fifth stage, Bennett managed to keep the Green Jersey, which is given to the best sprinter. The new leader of the mountains classification was Grossschartner, who also clinched the stage victory. In the Beauties of Turkey classification, national rider Feritcan Şamlı will be keeping to wear the White Jersey.
