and two one day races

I will post small previews of the two one day races but if anyone spots a SA book quoting Tour of Turkey odds please pop it on the board.

Course looks perfectly suited for Alaphillipe but not sure how he will be mentally. He came down last week - only a few scratches but here's the rub. Amazingly it is the first time as a pro cyclist he has ever been down in a race. Still think I will go with him.
Win Only
Alaphillipe @ 3/1
and looking for the other podium places
Top Three
Impey @ 6/1
Clarke @ 12/1
