Re: Turul României

The Turul României finished with a 100k city criterium in Bucharest yesterday - so with no pictures of sheeps, cows and landscape to be shown this time, but another good ~two hours of racing.

#teamtr Onur Balkan had looked like the quickest sprinter in the race over the past days already, and yesterday his Turkish National Team played it perfectly. With Ahmet Örken (together with team mate Nazim Bakirci) they put another quick guy in the breakaway to avoid having to keep the peloton together all day...

...and when the early break was caught due to the work of the Romanian teams and #friuli Cycling Team Friuli with three laps to go, they went to the front and Balkan easily took the win in the end.

Due to the bonus seconds #teamtr Balkan also moved up to Second in GC ahead of #voster Mateusz Grabis, but couldn't prevent #teamro Sergey Tvetcov from celebrating a fantastic home victory in the 51st edition of the Turul României anymore.
