The „orange squad” has named a fast lineup for Visegrad 4 Bicycle Race-GP Slovakia (March 31st, 1.2).
CCC Sprandi Polkowice will take on this event with 6 riders, including 2 sprinters – Alan Banaszek and Paweł Franczak. They are both capable of taking a victory on flat course and it will come down to who feels better and who is in better position coming into the finishing stretch. Outside of that duo, also Frantisek Sisr, Ronde van Drenthe winner, can deliver in the finale.
They can count on solid pace set by team’s top time triallists – Piotr Brożyna, Mateusz Taciak and Kamil Gradek.
Visegrad 4 Bicycle Race-GP Slovakia is held on a 158,7-kilometer route from Bratislava to Orechová Potôň. The finale will take place on a race track, which is around 7-kilometers long. Riders will cover it as many as 5 times.
Last year it was the sprinters who finished on the podium, as Alois Kankovsky won and Franczak got 3rd, but the winner came from a 10-man group, not a big bunch.
Scheduled finish: 16:15
