Nico Denz and Matthew Walls claimed the top two spots for Bora-Hansgrohe in stage 5 of the Tour of Turkey in a dangerously twisting, downhill, bunch sprint finish.
Denz took it on from the front with around two kilometres to go on a series of sweeping curves, crossing the line with Walls tucked in close behind. Cees Bol (Astana Qazaqstan) came up late for third.
A crash late on in the finale left several top sprinters out of the running, with leading favourite Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) reportedly amongst those affected.
Alexey Lutsenko (Astana Qazaqstan) retained the overall for a third straight day.
