Sacha Modolo won the sixth stage of the Tour of Turkey in a bunch sprint finish in Kusadasi.
The Colnago rider beat Australians Matt Goss (GreenEdge) and stage four winner Mark Renshaw (Rabobank) to the line at the end of the 148km trek from Bodrum.
It was a fourth second place finish for Goss in this year's race as Colnago-CSF Inox recorded their second consecutive stage win.
Stage three winner Ivailo Gabrovski (Konya Seker) retained his 1:33 lead on GC with two stages to go.
An attempt by a group including, amongst others, England's Andrew Fenn and stage two winner Andre Greipel was foiled before the lead trio were caught with 8km remaining.
A counter-attack by Enrico Battaglin was neutralised by 500m remaining but his team-mate Modolo was on hand to claim his first victory of the season.
