Durasek 5th in Selcuk, Conti gave him a super help

Very good feedbacks for Team LAMPRE-MERIDA in the 6th stage on Tour of Turkey, especially for what concerns Durasek and the young Valerio Conti.

Today stage had its topic moment in the summit arrival in Selcuk, 183,1 km from the start in Bodrum: it was probably the last chance to change the overall classification.
LAMPRE-MERIDA’s aim was to support the captain Kristijan Durasek, helping him especially in the approach of the final climb: Palini, Richeze, Bonifazio and Dodi worked perfectly for achieving this target.

On the climb, Croatian rider received the support by the young gun Valerio Conti (photo Franzetti), 21 years old neo-pro that, after a first part of season during which he had to face knee problem, showed in Turkey that his cycling qualities are very good.
Conti helped Durasek just to the fight for the victory, but the Croatian climber was not strong as the opponents: he crossed the finish line in 5th position (+7″ to the winner Yates), a result that makes him climb up to the 7th place in the overall classification (+45″).
