Wadecki: ‘We are joining Bartek in his happiness’

Can a cyclist of CCC Polsat Polkowice change the characteristic orange jersey for a pink one? Yes, if it is the best climber’s jersey of the 68th Tour de Pologne, which Bartłomiej Matysiak is going to wear after the second stage. The manager of CCC Polsat Polkowice – Piotr Wadecki – was very satisfied with his cyclist’s performance.

– Adrian Kurek is helping Matysiak at climbs, ‘Matys’ is helping Kurek in the sprint stages. The plan has come out.

It has. This is what we have settled with Piotr Kosmala, when the breakaway started. Actually, the same breakaway as yesterday. Kurek strengthened himself in the leading in the Fiat combativity classification, and Bartek has put on the climber’s jersey.

– Was ‘Matys’ supposed to attack today, or did it happen just like that?

We were to attack and jump away. The race went such a way that the same cyclists appeared. For Bartek it is good that he won the pink jersey of Tauron after yesterday’s stage. As a team we are glad together with him.

– Will the same breakaway go tomorrow?

No, rather not {laughing}. The boys are already tired. They were escaping on two days, and a thing like this leaves some effects.

– You will probably want to defend the jersey. In the third stage there is only one climb.

We should succeed tomorrow. But it is only the beginning of competing. The real mountains are still to come.
