Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) showed his class by edging out Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) and Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) in the final 500m to claim stage six of the 2019 Tour of Turkey.

Bennett looked to win a third stage victory as he tried to distance the bunch with 1km to go. However, Ewan and Jakobsen countered, catching Bennett with 500m left and Ewan sprinted clear around the final corner to claim his second stage victory of the week.
