Tour de Pologne 2015: The Route
The Tour de Pologne brings a mix of sprinter's chances, hilly stages and then the riders are off to the High Tatra Mountains. The last stage in an ITT in Krakow. Home-rider Rafal Majka is title holder.
Stage 1 in the Tour de Pologne is a 122 kilometres criterium in the Polish capital of Warsaw on a course that should fancy the sprinters. The same story for stage 2 – 146 kilometres and almost completely flat. Then the terrain begins to chance slightly as stage 3 is on rolling roads, still it will be the sprinters who are eyeing up this one.
In the 4th day of the Tour de Pologne the first hills loom in a 220 kilometres ride, while the first real mountains are on offer in stage 5. The decor are the High Tatra Mountains and it is here Rafal Majka took control in the 2014 edition. The mountain king in that year’s Tour de France won the last two stages and in doing so he took the overall.
The route of stage 6 is a copy of last year’s, when Majka soloed to victory in the leader’s jersey. One of the challenges is the Wall of Bukovina, with a steepest section at 22%, while the closing climb to Tatrzanska is 1.5 kilometres at 11% on average.
As per usual, the Tour de Pologne closes with an individual time trial in Krakow. Edition 2015 brings a 25 kilometres course with long straight lines from start to finish, so high speeds will be guaranteed.
