Marcin Mrożek will join CCC Sprandi Polkowice on a 2-year deal. He is the fifth new rider to sign with the “orange squad”.
We have been watching him following his development for a long time – Piotr Wadecki, sporting director of CCC Sprandi Polkowice, says. – He is a rider who feels comfortable in the hard terrain. After many years spent in Italy and racing in demanding, hilly races, we believe he is ready for professional cycling. Maybe he is not well known among the Polish fans, but he has a big potential and we think he will quickly showcase his great talent to the bigger audience – he adds.
25-year old Mrożek has been racing mostly for the Italian teams. This season was his third on the team Vejus – TMF – Cicli Magnum. In the second part of 2014 he was a trainee at Androni Giocattoli – Venezuela and participated in few one-day, 1.1 and 1.HC events.
Before joining Vejus – TMF – Cicli Magnum Mrożek was representing another Italian squad, U.S. Fracor. While he was still competing in Poland, he was wearing TC Chrobry Felt Głogów colors and was selected to the Polish National Team in youth categories on few occasions. He started his cycling career at KS Sokół Kęty.
His biggest achievements include victories in hard, hilly one-day events, such as Coppa Bologna Montallese (2015) or Giro delle Valli Aretine (2014). He would often finish races held in Italy in the top 10 and made the podium in Giro delle Valli Cunees and Gran Premio Valdaso, among others.
