Dariusz Batek (CCC Polsat Polkowice) won during the fourth edition of the Cup of Poland Skandia Maraton Lang Team in Gdańsk.
A lot of emotions were stirred by the held in Gdańsk men’s race in the fourth edition of the Cup of Poland Skandia Maraton Lang Team. The pace was tough from the beginning and nobody spared themselves. The first ones to feel it were Krzysztof Krzywy and Przemysław Ebertowski, out of the riders considered to be favourites. After the first lap at the head there was a group of 9 riders, which still melted in the further kilometres.
Undoubtedly, Dariusz Batek was the strongest on that day, breaking away in the final part of the race and confidently arriving in the first place. Behind him two riders from HP-Sferis arrived at the finishing line: the leader of the Cup of Poland Bartosz Banach and Wojciech Halejak.
– I attacked 7 kilometres before the finishing line and I managed to ride away. The route was fine and demanding. I will not deny – I am going to fight for the victory in the general classification, that is why I am going to appear in the further editions for sure – declared Dariusz Batek.
The next edition of the Cup of Poland Skandia Maraton Lang Team will take place on 22 July 2012 in Bytów.
