Ireland's Sam Bennett has retained the leader's blue jersey after day three at the Tour of Turkey.

The Carrick-on-Suir sprinter finished second to Fabio Jakobsen in today's hilly 123-kilometre third stage into Edremie, with Mark Cavendish third.

"Without my teammates this win was impossible," Jakobsen said of his stage win.

"This is a victory for them. Okay I do the sprint but they bring me into position. Max was my last man and he brought me into position with 200 meters tog It was a slightly uphill sprint and even a Turkish flag couldn't stop me . I just happy that I won and can take home the victory."

Bennett now holds a 20-second lead over his Bora–Hansgrohe teammate Felix Grossschartner on the general classification.
