Grand finale of the Tour de Pologne Women in Kazimierz Dolny!

The time has come for the final act of the Tour de Pologne Women. The final stage will take the cyclists through a challenging and picturesque route from the Arche Nałęczów Hotel to Kazimierz Dolny. Here, the riders will face 5 demanding laps, which will determine who will wear the yellow jersey of the ORLEN general classification on the final podium.

The three days of racing in the Tour de Pologne Women are coming to the end. The individual time trial in Lublin and yesterday’s road stage from Krasnystaw to Kraśnik have identified the group of favorites who will compete today for the overall ORLEN classification win.

The differences at the top are small enough that anything can still happen, promising a thrilling spectacle. The action starts at the Arche Nałęczów Hotel, which has been the base for the Tour de Pologne Women for the past few days. From there, riders cyclists will head towards Kazimierz Dolny, where they will race on 15-kilometer hilly laps. Along the way, two intermediate sprints sponsored by LOTTO will be placed in Skowieszynek and Kazimierz Dolny. The competition will end after covering 103 kilometers – the demanding, interval course combined with the heat will challenge the riders today.

The riders are ready for such challenges, as they demonstrated during yesterday’s stage from Krasnystaw to Kraśnik. We saw many attacks, with the decisive move made 7 kilometers before the finish by Laura Molenaar, the Dutch rider from the VolkerWessels team. She now leads the ORLEN general classification, ahead of her teammate Scarlett Souren.

In third place after two stages is Katarzyna Wilkos from MAT ATOM Developer Wrocław. These two teams – VolkerWessels and the Wrocław-based team – dominated yesterday’s stage and had the most representatives in the breakaway. Riders from these leading teams have promised to fight, so we can be sure that there will be plenty of attacks today as well – especially since the route offers many opportunities to break up the group.

Other teams will also be keen to put on a strong performance, particularly the UAE Development Team. We should also keep an eye on riders like Lithuanian Rasa Leleivyte, Australian Emily Watts, and the Polish national team members – Aurela Nerlo and Karolina Perekitko – who also rode very actively yesterday.

We will most likely know the winner of the ORLEN general classification before 4:00 PM. Laura Molenaar will start the stage in the yellow jersey, and the blue jersey of the LOTTO active riders’ classification will be worn by Czech rider Nikola Bajgerova from MAT ATOM Developer Wrocław.
