CCC Sprandi Polkowice riders were active during Turkish one-day race, Grand Prix Alanya and Paweł Franczak finished the competition in 5th place.
Info: February 18th, Alanya – Alanya, 175km
Grand Prix Alanya was a very lively and filled with multiple attacks race. “Riders in orange” made sure that they are well represented in every move though and when a big group, of around 30 men broke clear, CCC Sprandi Polkowice had four riders in that escape – Paweł Bernas, Paweł Franczak, Leszek Pluciński and Piotr Brożyna.
After another attempts to rip the breakaway apart, new 13-man group was formed and this time Bernas and Franczak made it into it.
With 30km to go Kirill Pozdnyakov (Baku Cycling) launched a solo move. He held on to take a win, while Franczak finished in 5th place (1:20 behind the winner). Bernas was 12th.
