In the last start of CCC Polsat Polkowice, cyclists competed on the race Clasica de Almeria (cat.1 HC). Bartek Marysiak finished high on 7th place.
The “orange” Polkowice riders start in Clasica de Almeria was a very good performance. During the race, the riders rode CCC Polsat Polkowice very active. Orange shirts riders could be seen almost always in the front of the pack. There were a lot of attacks and escapes, which tried to take the team riders ‘orange’. His chances departure attempted to include Jaroslaw Marek Rutkiewicz and Marycz. Very effectively to volatile Grzegorz Stepniak finished bonus.
However, the biggest success of the day was to address by Bartek Matysiak 7.miejsca in a mass finish at the finish line in Roquetas de Mar.
Good thing this race behind me – said after the Bart Matysiak. Before the start of the race with team mates the pressure was enormous … “no Matys, last time you were 5, then today you have to go well.”
Clasica de Almeria this year was a little easier than in previous years. In the middle part of the race, there were three mountain that much gave bonuses to the characters of all cyclists. Battered the peloton a little bit, a little wind blew in the end, he made a small rancik and strongly “pulled” 50-person group. The last 15 km is already driving in a city where there were many dangerous places m.in rondka, narrowing the road, where you had to be “vigilant”. Just before the finish line firmly worked hard to “Rutek”. He dragged me to the very crest of the group and we literally 150 meters later began to finish, it was by chance on a really high place. However, I’m happy with the resulting space for which I thank all colleagues from the team who are very helped me with this.
I think the race went active and is a good omen before the next starts our team – ended Bartek Matysiak.
