Recently I hadd the opportunity of shooting 47 th Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey , which has the prolouge stage in Istanbul , starting from Europan side and finising on the Asian coast of the city.
Italy’s Andrea Guardini (Farnese Vini-Neri) has won the prolouge stage of historical bike race bridging two continents, Europe and Asia, held for the first time from the historical Sultanhamet to Kadiköy on the Asian seaside of Istanbul.
President Abdullah Gül joined the first three racers (Andrea Guardini Tyler Farrar and Kenny van Hummel )
at the pedestal during the ceremony.
Tour will end at 1 May with the final stage of Side to Antalya with a route with 158 kms.
