Race wrap up

By Daniel Marszalek

This junior race is also called the Lech Cergowski Memorial - who was long-time journalist and cycling expert in Polish main sport-daily "Przeglad Sportowy". Both time trials were won by Mateusz Taciak from the regional team of Wielkopolska, while Russian Michail Ignatiew later took the lead and held it till the last day. But eventually Slovakian Matej Jurco, thanks to 9 seconds advantage over the peloton on the last stage, won overall, also taking three stage wins.
