TeamsEdit

Three UCI WorldTeams, fourteen UCI ProTeams and eight UCI Continental teams participated in the race.[3][4] Of the twenty-five teams, Deceuninck–Quick-Step, Gazprom–RusVelo, and Team SKS Sauerland NRW, with six riders each, were the only ones that did not field the maximum allowed of seven riders.[5] UCI ProTeam Vini Zabù was originally invited to participate, but they imposed a self-suspension on racing after one of their riders received a positive anti-doping test.[6] From the 171 riders that started the race, 139 finished.[7]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ a b Stage 1, originally covering 167.3 kilometres (104.0 mi) from Nevşehir to Ürgüp, was initially cancelled due to heavy snow storms.[8] However, hours later, race officials organized an alternate route for the stage in and around Konya, which then became the host of the first two stages. This new route was essentially a shorter version of the route for stage 2, except the race would turn east onto the D696 highway instead of heading south to take on a longer loop as they would for the second stage.[9]
