At the starting line of Wyścig Dookoła Mazowsza there were cyclists of the leading Polish groups, and also foreign teams from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Holland, Germany and Belarus. In the race three cyclists from the CCC Polsat Polkowice group took part, preparing themselves for the start in Tour de Pologne. The leader of BGŻ Proliga Łukasz Bodnar as well as Mateusz Taciak and Błażej Janiaczyk rode two stages after which they withdrew to have some rest before the starting on Sunday race Around Poland.

The first leader was the German Andre Schulze from the group of CCC Polsat Polkowice, who won the prologue starting the race. The best of Poles, Marcin Sapa (Team BDC), took the third place. Even the first stage resulted in a selection, the finishing line was reached by the riding along Slovak Matej Jurco from the team of Dukla Trentin, who defeated the German Rudiger Selig (Jenatec) finishing in front of a six-person group, and Robert Radosz (Team BDC). The second stage ended with a field sprint, in which Poles presented themselves well. Robert Radosz, in a great form, won before Krzysztof Jeżowski (Team BGŻ) and Błażej Janiaczyk (CCC Polsat Polkowice). The next stage was a bold and effective attack of two young men. Jarosław Kowalczyk (Wielkopolska) achieved a victory, overtaking Piotr Kirpsza (Mostostal Puławy) in the final stretch. Four second after the leader Krzysztof Jeżowski brought the peloton.

The fourth, last stage was won by Mateusz Komar from the group of BDC after a solitary breakaway, the second place was taken by Wojciech Skarżyński from the representation of the Polish Army, and the peloton was brought by Robert Radosz in the third place, who became the winner of the race. The cyclist of the BDC group overtook the German Rudiger Selig by a mere second, and Krzysztof Jeżowski by three seconds.
