Polish Tourism Organization is a partner of the Tour de Pologne Women

The Polish Tourism Organization has joined the group of partners of the Tour de Pologne Women cycling race. The second edition of the competition organized by Lang Team, featuring female cyclists from around the world, will take place from June 28 to June 30, 2024, entirely on the roads of the Lublin Voivodeship. As part of the partnership, the partner’s logo will be placed on items such as race numbers and bicycles of all participants, on advertising materials along the race route, and in outdoor campaigns and social media.

“This collaboration feels completely natural to me. For almost two decades, together with the Polish Tourism Organization, we have been promoting the beautiful regions of our country through which the Tour de Pologne peloton passes. Now, we will be showcasing and praising the tourist attractions, monuments, culture, and natural diversity of Lublin to the world. I am convinced that both parties will successfully leverage the potential of this partnership,” said Czesław Lang.

The Tour de Pologne Women marks the return of women’s cycling in our country after years of absence. The first edition of the race was organized by Lang Team in 2016. Czesław Lang is confident that this fresh start will allow the Polish tour to join the prestigious events of the UCI Women’s World Tour in the near future.

“Women’s cycling is evolving rapidly and is extremely thrilling. Additionally, our female cyclists have long been performing remarkably in major races, proving their reliability. With the aim of further developing Polish women’s cycling, we are reintroducing the idea of organizing the Tour de Pologne Women,” assured the Lang Team president.

The race will commence on June 28 with an individual time trial in Lublin. The distance will be short (4.5 kilometers) but quite demanding and selective, ensuring an early shaping of the ORLEN general classification. The second stage, covering 136 km, will lead from Krasnystaw to Kraśnik, passing through the Szczebrzeszyn Landscape Park along the way. On Sunday, June 30, the peloton will embark on the final stage from Hotel Arche Nałęczów, and after 103 kilometers of riding, the three-day competition will conclude in the picturesque Kazimierz Dolny.

The partnership with the Tour de Pologne Women aligns perfectly with the strategy of the Polish Tourism Organization under the theme “Poland. More than you expected,” aiming to promote the Polish tourist offer by surprising audiences with the diversity and wealth of our country’s less obvious attractions.

“With great joy and full conviction, we accepted Czesław Lang’s invitation to co-create the second edition of the Tour de Pologne Women. The mission of the Polish Tourism Organization includes supporting important sport projects for Polish tourism and the economy, and the events organized by Lang Team certainly fall into this category at the highest level. I am confident that the Tour de Pologne Women has a splendid future ahead and our collaboration will contribute to the excellent promotion of Poland for years to come,” said Rafał Szmytke, President of the Polish Tourism Organization.

Eighteen teams will participate in the Tour de Pologne Women – national teams from Poland, Denmark, and Ukraine, as well as 15 teams from countries with rich cycling traditions such as Belgium, France, and Great Britain. Also noteworthy is the participation of a special team formed under the auspices of the International Cycling Union (UCI) – the World Cycling Center, consisting of talented athletes who lack access to modern training methods and international competitions in their own countries.
