Yeah the route was changed due to flooded and impassable roads in the hilly loop they were initially going to do. Antalya was a bit wet last year as well I remember. Not the weather they want to show the area off as a possible training location for teams.

Spring weather in this part of the world is rainy, and it can rain a lot in a short time. It is not like the pictures you see in  tourist brochures. The "tour of Rhodes", another early-season-warmup race,  is also affected by the occasional torrential rainfall. Rule of thumb is to wait till after easter for the better weather, but it is give or take a week or two. I think once these races get a few years running, northern europe conti- and pro-conti team will see the western mediterranean as a better area for early season races and training.
