8-man squad will participate in the upcoming two, one-day events – Memorial Henryka Łasaka and Puchar Uzdrowisk Karpackich.
Fast riders, with solid climbing skills should be the main actors in both of the races. Last year, after a solo move, Maciej Paterski took the win in Memorial Henryka Łasaka. Next day Branislau Samoilau finished fourth. This time, they will not show up at the start line, since at this time they are competing in Tour de Pologne.
Both, sprinters – Bartłomiej Matysiak, Grzegorz Stępniak – and climbers – Sylwester Szmyd, Łukasz Owsian, Adrian Honkisz – are included in the roster. They will be also supported by all rounders, Mateusz Taciak, Tomasz Kiendyś and Leszek Pluciński. Therefore the team should be prepared for every race scenario.
Puchar Uzdrowisk Karpackich is 166 kilometers long and it goes from Jedlicze to Rymanów Zdrój. Its profile is undulating and the finish is located on the flat. 170-kilometer Memoriał Henryka Łasaka, which is held the day before, features more climbing.
Lineup for Memoriał Henryka Łasaka (8.08, 1.2) and Puchar Uzdrowisk Karpackich (9.08, 1.2): Bartłomiej Matysiak, Łukasz Owsian, Sylwester Szmyd, Mateusz Taciak, Adrian Honkisz, Tomasz Kiendyś, Grzegorz Stępniak, Leszek Pluciński.
