It was a fast downhill finish and the 23-year-old Philipsen won by a clear bike length from the chasing pair of 38-year-old Greipel and Cavendish, who is 35.

Strong winds caused breaks in the peloton with the more powerful riders faring better on the open plains, but Greipel’s Israel Start Up Nation team did most to reel the escapees in just two kilometers from home. Spain’s Jose Manuel Diaz remains overall race leader, but only by one second from Australian Jay Vine who took four bonus seconds in the intermediate sprints ahead of the final stage between the coastal resorts of Bodrum and Kusadasi.
