Cycling Tour of Turkey

The cycling Tour of Turkey is on TV on EuroSport at the moment but they are in Alanya at the moment.

Several years ago the race was shown as it came up the road from the mountains leading from the Antalya direction, then riding to the finish line down the main street of Fethiye.

Does anyone know if this will be shown this year?

Have just checked it out on this website http://www.tourofturkey.org/2012/ and the leg Fethiye to Marmaris is on Wednesday 25 April.

They are running the race in the reverse direction this year.

It will be on TV on Eurosport 1pm Monday, 3:15 Tuesday and 1pm Wednesday showing Fethiye.

The views from the helicopter are well worth seeing.

If you are on your bicycle FF and find yourself in a bunch of cyclists, just pull over and don't try to keep up.

Keefee - watched them last year at the end of our street.

Roads closed for 2 hours, 20 minutes of support cars, police and ambulances - then 15 seconds of cyclists - what a let down.

canmom, thanks for the link.

Turkish TV channel TRT is said to be also showing the race.

FF, must be irritating to have roads closed but the aerial shots on TV are great.

Today, just before the finish there was a mass pileup.

Thanks for heads up Keefee.

Hope I can glimpse it this time, as I don't get Eurosport or TRT channels at mo, only Nilsat, Arabic & English!

When I'm out on my bike, don't think I'd be tempted to keep up - besides I'd look out of place as I don't own the trendy Lycra kit !

anyone travelling to or from the dalaman airport on 2012/04/25 should expect some delays along the route and single lane traffic
