Good riddance, really. Turkey was never on the level of even the other 'new' WT races.

I don't agree, there are few other races that can finish in the smack dab centre of one of the worlds largest cities, and in a country with a population that's growing fast compared with most others around it.  Some of that could also apply to the UAE tour but I think it is more probable that sponsors can make a fortune by selling bikes to Turks than to the Arabs, as the climate in general is more hospitable to cycling. There's also nothing wrong with the terrain on offer, just bring the racers and maintain public safety and it should be a sure sell. An opportunity to push the sport into the spotlight that was sadly missed, partly due to terrorism and war in the neighboring countries.
