Tour de Pologne
The Tour de Pologne has travelled to Argentina, with General Director Czeslaw Lang paying a visit to the Tour de San Luis. The South American stage race that took place from January 18th to the 25th did, in fact, officially open cycling’s big season in tandem with the Tour Down Under in Australia.
The Tour de Pologne is enjoying increased prestige and expanding popularity in Europe. More and more countries want to co-organize part of the Polish stage race included in the UCI World Tour calendar.
Today was a special day for the Tour de Pologne. The new World Champion Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma - Quick-Step) paid a visit to the Lang Team headquarters in Warsaw to be welcomed and embraced by Czeslaw Lang and the entire staff at the Tour de Pologne.
Rafal Majka from Saxo-Tinkoff group was placed on the list for the 71st Tour de Pologne-UCI World Tour. A year ago, the rider took fourth place in the Polish stage race. This time he will try to fight for the podium, and maybe even an overall win.
“I remember it perfectly; the Tour de Pologne was my first major victory among the pros.”
