24 February 2018
The strangest and most complicated stage of the Tour of Antalya was held today. Only 32.5 km up to the 1120 meters of Feslikan, for a final climb of a dozen kilometers. To impose itself was a former professional runner but stayed on foot at the end of 2017: advantage in the plains, Artem Ovechkin managed to resist the attempts to return and thus won a deserved success.

The thirty-one Russian, in the race with the amateur club Marathon-Tula, preceded on the podium of the day the talented Eritrean Awet Habtom (Polartec-Kometa) and the blueEdoardo Zardini (Wilier Triestina-Selle Italy), who started on the right foot the new experience.The Belarusian Ilia Koshevoy (Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia), the Moldovan Cristian Raileanu (Torku Sekerspor), the Belgian Kevin De Jonghe (Tarteletto-Isorex), the Eritrean Michael Habtom (Eritrea), Kazakh Vadim Pronskiy (Astana City) and the Austrian Lukas Schlemmer (Team Felbermayr-Simplon Wels).

Artem Ovechkin (Marathon-Tula Cycling Team) won the third stage of the Tour of Antalya and became the new leader of the race.
The penultimate stage of the Turkish race was quite specific. Initially, the organizers thought about the time trial, but eventually the riders raced on the route of only 33 kilometers.Almost 12 last kilometers have led uphill, and the last 7000 meters have an average slope of 9.7%. 

Despite such a short stage, the peloton released a three-man escape: Christian Albrechtsen (Denmark), Ahmet Örken (Salcano Sakarya) and Maksym Vasilyev (Ukraine). However, as expected, their action ended at the beginning of the driveway.
Artem Ovechkin (Marathon-Tula Cycling Team) decided on a lonely attack  . Experienced Russian with performances in the team of Katusha gradually increased the advantage and did not let themselves be caught up to the finish line. He also became the new leader of the race.
Second was a young Eritrean rider in the team of Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso - Awet Habtom (Polartec-Kometa). The stage podium was completed by Edoardo Zardini ( Wilier Triestina - Selle Italia).
In the ninth place Szymon Rekita (Leopard Pro Cycling) finished today, who is also ninth in the general classification.
