The dangerous sprint that Jakobsen won with a flag attached to the handlebar

The Dutch Deceuninck broke Bennett's streak in the third stage of the Tour of Turkey despite the problems he had on the finish line.

Fabio Jakobsen won the third stage of the Tour of Turkey after being the fastest in a very dangerous sprint. Because the Dutch Deceuninck, in full effort on the arrival line, was hooked one of the flags of Turkey that rippled the spectators in many cases, as it was found, too close to the runners.

The incident did not stop Jakobsen from imposing his speed point and breaking St. Bennett's winning streak in the first two stages. Crossed the goal with the flag on the handlebar and lifted it, and then throw it to the ground perhaps as a reaction after realizing that it could have caused a dangerous fall at high speed. More calm on the podium, waved the flag of Turkey in a clear gesture that he did not want to disregard the symbol of the country.

Bennett is now leader of the general with 20 "advantage over the Austrian Felix Grossshartner and 22 over the Colombian Jhonatan Restrepo, while Gonzalo Serrano (Caja Rural) is the best Spanish in the fifth place.
