“Orange squad” to Tour de Hongrie

Adrian Kurek and Mateusz Taciak will eye the prologue, Paweł Bernas should contest sprints in case of reduced bunch finish, while Frantisek Sisr is the main sprinter of the team for typical battle of the fastest. Leszek Pluciński is looking forward to the queen stage, with a long ascent, that ends 30km from the finish and Kamil Małecki together with Patryk Stosz will play the role of valuable domestiques.
