That's more like it. :cool


Now say what you like about the recent Polish races, in this season of cancelled events I'm sure more than one CT team is grateful that there are any low level stage races going ahead at all.

A quick look at the UCI website, and of the fifteen .2 stage races (I'm not counting the espoir events) in Europe that have been raced, or are pencilled in to be ridden since the lockdown ended, five (!) will have been in Poland. In fact the majority have been in Eastern Europe.

Anyway if you've been paying attention that means there is one more Polish race to come and it starts tomorrow. It's the Tour of Malopolska and yes ICA are racing again.

It's a lot hillier than the other Polish races.

Prologue - 1.3km at 8.5%
Stage 1 - HTF 4.4km at 6%
Stage 2 - only chance for a sprint, but could see some breakaway action
Stage 3 - MTF 10.1km at 7.5%

It's the usual suspects who are lined up - Vosters, CCC Devo, Wibatech, Vino, Tartu etc etc along with ICA. No names yet. The only two I know who are riding are Ovett and Avila.
