Turkey sets new date for Presidential Cycling Tour

The 46th Presidential Cycling Tour in Turkey is set to run between April 11 and 18, 2010, Turkish Cycling Federation said Wednesday.

The race schedule was earlier set for April 21-28.

The federation said details of the race remained unchanged as the tour began in Istanbul in a prologue stage before riders arrived in Izmir by plane. The final stage will take place in Antalya.

The tour will complete 8 stages and 1,247 kilometers and the riders will arrive in Fethiye on 15 April 2010 for stage 5 of the race after a 207km ride starting from Pamukkale near Denizli.

The stage will take the tough mountain road from Denizli via Cameli climbing to over 1,600 metres and then descending via Uzumlu and then into Fethiye for the stage finish.

Riders will then leave Fethiye and head south for the finish in the town of Finike.

The tour will be broadcast live on Turkey's state-run television network, TRT.

Daryl Impey of South Africa won last year's competition ahead of Davide Malacarne of Italy and David Garcia Dapena of Spain.
