Tour of Turkey 2021

Tour of Turkey 2021 will be held 11-18 April 2021.

Last year the UCI decided to downgrade the Tour of Turkey, also called the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey, from UCI world tour to their UCI ProSeries. Due to their world tour status the starting field in 2019 was very solid as a lot of world tour teams decided to send a delegation but this all changed after the downgrade.

In Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey 2021 there are only 3 World Tour teams who have confirmed their participation; Astana, Israel Start-Up Nation and Deceuninck Quickstep.
The most interesting non-world tour teams are Alpecin-Fenix who started this year amazingly by wins from Mathieu Van Der Poel and Tim Merlier and team Nippo Provence-PTS Conti.

This means that the last winner Felix Großschartner will probably not win again as Bora-Hansgrohe won’t participate this season. This opens up some possibilities for the last third place finisher Merhawi Kudus.
Merhawi Kudus is a 27-year old Eritrean climber who rides for Astana. He has had limited success in his career but in this depleted playing field he could be a name to watch. Especially as he has already had some top 10 finished in 1 week races in the Middle East. On top of that his experience could come in to play.

Our next candidate is Gianni Vermeersch. This 28 year-old Belgian is currently riding for Alpecin-Fenix. In Van Der Poel’s and Merlier’s shadow he has quietly started this season very well.

Although Vermeersch could also be a very solid helper for Tim Merlier. The Presidential Cycling Tour has a lot of sprinting stage’s which would be ideal for Merlier. This lighter tour could be great to see how he reacts in longer tour’s and how is sprinting evolves throughout a week.

If they decide not-to start Merlier his compatriot Jasper Philipsen could be a  great option to win some of the sprinting stages. This young Belgian has flown a bit under the radar this season but he has proven his sprinting capabilities last year by winning a stage in the Binckbank Tour (now rebranded as Benelux Tour) and even in the Vuelta.

But one of their main competitors could be one of the most legendary sprinters of all time. Mark Cavendish is nearing his retirement but he still believes he can compete with the best of the world. Quickstep’s B-team is as good as most other team’s A-team which could set him up for his first win this season in Turkey. He knows how to keep himself fresh throughout a Tour which would give him an advantage over some of the less experienced sprinters that will be starting.
Another interesting Quickstep rider is a young Belgian climber. Of course everyone’s first thought is Remco Evenepoel but Turkey will probably still be a little bit too soon for him as he is still coming back from the injury he suffered last season in Il Lombardia.

But Quickstep has another amazing prospect. Mauri Vansevenant became a professional rider for Quickstep in 2020 after an amazing youth career.

After a weird opening season due to Corona he has started his second season of in a surprisingly good fashion. He became eight in the Tour de la Provence, third in the Trofeo Laigueglia, a one-day race in Italy, and even won the GP Industria & Artigianato! In this win he beat some of the biggest names in cycling such as Nairo Quintana, Alejandro Valverde, Bauke Mollema and Mikel Landa.

If Quickstep pulls the card of Vansevenant who is still only 21 years old he could very well be the winner of the Presidential Cycling Tour.
