Tour de Pologne: It’s Not all Just About the Pros…

Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne & Tour de Pologne Amatorow

The Tour de Pologne is ready to deliver plenty of thrills to all cycling fans, young and old. In fact, once again this year the pro race will be associated with the race for kids called Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne (https://minitourdepologne.pl/). Following the wave of success it has enjoyed in its last editions, for six days the race will feature two editions, with the race for kids from 8 to 12 (divided into two groups, 8-10 and 11-12) and the one for kids in the 13-14 club, which this year has been given the name “Puchar Mlodzików” (meaning Youth Cup). This event within the event aims to bring kids closer to cycling and allow them to experience all the excitement of the Tour de Pologne. This is the spirit at the centre of the Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne. The event also enjoys the patronage of the Minister of Sports and Tourism Witold Banka, who on several occasions has underscored the social and educational role of the Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne, an event developed to get kids and their families involved in sport.


“This year the Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne will host its ninth edition. In 2015 more than 2000 kids participated. These are important numbers that we find very satisfying and that spur us to keep working with passion and commitment for this event which, for its numbers and organizational aspects, has become a European role model as a one-of-a-kind event. Of course none of this would be possible without the beneficial and synergetic collaboration with the Tour de Pologne. Ferrero, with its Nutella brand, has been partners with the race for years,” says Enrico Bottero, General Manager for Ferrero Polska.


Every day, all the kids who participate will receive a really nice, “tempting” Nutella kit with the official Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne jersey and lots of fantastic gadgets supplied by the Tour de Pologne and Ferrero. Furthermore, the first 5 classified riders of each stage in the “Puchar Mlodzików”, both boys and girls, will take part in the grand finale in Krakow; the young winners will be awarded trophies designed by the artist from Trento Mirko Demattè, who also designed the trophies which will be received by the men and women who win the TDP. Remember that the spokesman for the event will be 2014 World Champion Michal Kwiatkowski. Kwiato is the talent which best represents the extraordinary growth and development of the Polish cycling movement. His brilliant career got started right here, when he first hit the pedals in what was known as the Mini Tour de Pologne for kids.

“The Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne has become an integral part of the Tour de Pologne. We are very pleased because every year more and more kids participate, and this testifies to the enthusiasm felt for the race and for cycling here in Poland. We sincerely thank Ferrero, whose Nutella brand has supported us with passion and commitment to put together this extraordinary event dedicated to the younger generation, which represents the future of cycling,” underscores Czeslaw Lang, General Director for the TDP.


The Tour de Pologne is for kids but also for amateurs and cycling tourists. Once again this year, the Tour de Pologne Amatorow powered by Tauron offers an event not to be missed, with the race that will bring fans to pedal on the pro circuit in Bukowina Tatrzanska, along with plenty of stars and special guests from the world of sports and entertainment who will be lining up with Czeslaw Lang at the start. For anyone who wants to challenge themselves on the same roads covered by the champions in the Tour de Pologne, the race is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 17th at the BUKOVINA Resort.
