Mateusz Taciak has became this year’s a winner of the final classification ProLigi BGZ cycle. Summary of the 2013 season is told by Mateusz in the interview granted to the procycling.org.
2013 cycling season is over. As with your prospects look like this time ?
Season this year was very exhausting. This year for me is very long , because it takes from February to the end of October , and it’s a lot. Overall, I include it as successful as it was able to maintain a good disposition throughout this period , which in this sport is very, very difficult. I have satisfactory results , but I think that alone is not enough victories . This year the race amongst the BGZ ProLigi was significantly more than in previous years . Due to losses abroad for at least one third race in Poland had to let go. Despite this, I managed to win the overall score ProLigi of which I am very happy . The competition was extremely interesting and intense.
BGZ jersey ProLigi took over from his colleague Marek Rutkiewicz , we can say that the green table. This is of some significance for you ?
Yes, that’s right. Shirt took over from Mark . I do not like to compete with his team-mates , so a little bad about it felt . The only thing that is comforting is the fact that this year we brought her into the hands of another team .
Which of this year’s race will remember most and why?
I think the most important race for me was the Baltic- Giant . It is an important event in Poland , but I could start the final stage as a leader, dressed all in yellow. It was important to me . The next event , which is certainly long remember the Tour de Pologne . This year, organizers have marked out extremely hard route . The first two stages in Italy were played in great heat and caused me great difficulty .
This year, the CCC joined Davide Rebellin . How does this affect you player and colleagues ?
Davide presence in our team certainly brought something . For example, at the races in which he could fight , each of us trying to keep as long as possible in the lead . Sometimes we were able to ride along with him to the end. It happened that we had to catch up to Davide able to escape to fight . This meant that continually raised the level of his .
What’s now in front of you ? What are your plans for the next few weeks?
I have just returned home after a successful start in the Tour of Hainan. It was a good season extension , so that winter break is not too long . November it will be a period of rest , I’ll roztrenowanie and sit at home with the family. In December, slowly begin to prepare for the new season .
Perhaps it is too early , but thinking about next year already starts, you are betting against each other objectives?
In fact, I did not focus more on the new season. Calmly wait until the old finish and have a rest from the bike. I think in my calendar will not occur any specific changes. Definitely will be important for me Piast Castles . I also fought for the Polish championship medal and the order to start and do well in the Tour de Pologne . They will of course be for me BGZ ProLiga . I wanted there to acknowledge this year’s achievements.
And what you want to achieve in the whole cycling career? What are your dreams?
As a young , promising rider dreamed of one day racing in the team of licensed World Tour . In 2006 he went to France. There raced three seasons in the amateur team . I won a lot of events . Unfortunately, in France, the Pole ‘s hard to sign professional terms . I made a good result at the Polish Championship in the elite and got offered a job in the team of Frost from Peter Kosmala . This is what I came back to Polish . I think it will be ridden once in the team World Tour . For the rider’s most important is health. If it will be the rest will follow. Today, I’m not such a young player . The teams with the highest shelves looking for young talents. In fact, now stepped in the best age of the rider , and so there may yet be something from me . Maybe the dream will come true in the current team , because the team ‘s ambitions and our sponsor Mr Dariusz Milka are big.
In what colors you’ll be driving in the 2014 season ?
Next season will be the team of CCC. In Poland, I would not have anywhere better to prosecute and development. I am very glad , for which I thank the sponsor .
