Paweł Cieślik was born in Poznań, and he lives in Tarnowo Podgórne. This is where he joined his first cycling club, KK Tarnovia Tarnowo Podgórne, at the age of 13. He’s first coach was Piotr Broński.

It all started with PE classes and school running races. Since he liked the competition and had an endurance talent, his teacher convinced him to try out cycling. Early in his career he got a taste of most of cycling disciplines – MTB, CX, track, but he stuck to road, where he felt the strongest.

As he says himself, the biggest success is still yet to come, despite some big results in his resume. He was 14th in GC of World Tour Tour de Suisse, 8th in Tour of Slovenia and 3rd on the mountain stage of Tour of Turkey.

He turned pro in 2009, signing with Mróz-Action, after racing for amateur French teams for few years. Later on he would juggle between Piotr Kosmala’s team, Bank BGŻ and Czech Author squad.
