The Astana rider had too much speed for Lampre's Italian veteran Alessandro Petacchi at the end of the 181km stage from Kusadasi.

Ella Favilli was a distant third with Garmin speedster Tyler Farrar fading to sixth after losing out to Andrea Guardini in Sunday's opening stage.

The 30-year-old Kazakh takes the overall lead as Guardini relinquished the turquoise jersey after finishing more than four minutes down.

The 47th Tour of Turkey continues Tuesday with the 166km third stage from Bodrum to Marmaris in what should be another chance for the sprinters.
