"Cycling" Tour of Turkey?? If not for the UCI badge, one would take this to be an event designed for the recreational cyclist. At any rate, it's actually a prestigious stage race and word on the street is that it's going to be televised on TRT in 2008. Yours truly is working hard in the coming weeks to establish communications with the Turkish Federation and with the race organizers so that I can compete. I either need to put my own team together or be invited as a guest on another team.
