After tests carried out on rider Manuel Belletti by the medical staff of the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team at the hospital in the Republic of Kemer following a crash on yesterday’s stage, he was diagnosed with a contusion to his right chest and right arm, as well as some abrasions to his hip. Pending evolutions. The rider did not start today’s stage. The staff would like to thank the Tour of Turkey organisation and the hospital staff for their organisation, speed and professionalism in the care they received.

Stefano Zanatta: “I’m sorry for the fall, but he managed to make some good sprints and yesterday he had the opportunity to place well. I’m very sorry for the fall, but it’s part of the game: sprints are like that, especially in races like these where there are no big teams that keep the group aligned. The most important thing is that the guy didn’t suffer any major consequences and hopefully he’ll be back in ten days or so”.
