We seem to have ignored this event this year. Maybe because it's not come through Alanya, Side, Antalya, etc etc where there are heavier European populations or perhaps it's not had sufficient advertising to catch people's attention?
I don't know, anyway, I enjoy it and have been catching up in...
The tour kicked off yesterday and it was a real treat to watch the 1st stage on Eurosport after I'd got home from a day at the office.

Turkey’s biggest cycling event is ready to hit the road for the 46th time. The Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey, or TUR, as organizers prefer to call it, will start Sunday in Istanbul and head south Monday, ending up in Alanya.
