Eduard Prades claimed overall victory of the Tour of Turkey after pushing Andrey Lutseno into second place in the final stage.

Prades (Euskadi Murias) won thanks to a six-second time bonus and superior placings over the six-day competition.

Lutseknko (Astana) finished tied on time but Padres' second-place finish on day six edged out Lutsenko, who could only manage 13th place.

In third was Katusha-Alpecin's Nathan Haas, four seconds back, just ahead of Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) was fourth.
