6-man roster will take part in the one-day race – Velothon Stockholm, which will be held on September 13th.
182-kilometer course, with start and the finish in the center of Stockholm, is flat and fast. A bunch sprint finish is expected and that’s why the roster for the race is based mostly on riders who are at their best in the sprinters or slightly undulating terrain.
Our main man for the sprint will be Grzegorz Stępniak. He will be supported by fast Bartłomiej Matysiak, and very good lead-out riders, such as Adrian Kurek, Jarosław Marycz or Tomasz Kiendyś. For Maciej Paterski it will be the prep-race before the world championship in Richmond – Piotr Wadecki, sporting director of CCC Sprandi Polkowice explains.
Velothon Stockholm, which debuts in the cycling calendar this year, is included in the Velothon Majors series (alongside Garming Velothon Berlin and Velothon Wales). 21 teams – ProContinental, Continental and National – are expected at the start line.
Lineup for Velothon Stockholm (1.1, 13.09): Grzegorz Stępniak, Jarosław Marycz, Bartłomiej Matysiak, Maciej Paterski, Adrian Kurek, Tomasz Kiendyś
