Matysiak: ‘Nobody said it would be easy’

Bartłomiej Matysiak (CCC Polsat Polkowice), who achieved the 5th place in the Clasica de Almeria (category: 1.1) has already had 6 starts in this season. The team started the season with the race in Malaysia, but for the obvious reasons that race should be treated as training.

After Malaysia the popular ‘Matys’ went to Portugal, where, as he himself thinks, he took part in a very hard stage race, which was not an easy stage of preparations for the season, but one has to go through such ones too.

His next start in Spain must already be considered successful, and let’s hope that it was just a foretaste of what that talented cyclist of Piotr Wadecki’s group will present in this season. Actually, the results of the other cyclists of CCC Polsat Polkowice showed during that race, that the form is at a high level.

– In Poland my targets are Sobótka, Grody Piastowskie, the Championship of Poland and Tour de Pologne – said Bartłomiej Matysiak. – At present it is hard to say where I will race abroad, everything depends what form I will have. If it is good, I would like to fight in classics.

So far the team has had two training camps in Spain. As Matysiak claims, the cyclists spent them working hard. In the opinion of the 5th cyclist of Clasica de Almeria, also the foreign team-mates have already adjusted well in the new team.

What next? – My next race will be the classic races in Belgium in the second half of March – says Matysiak. – For sure it will be rainy and cold, which I do not like, but nobody said it would be easy – concluded the cyclist smiling.
