Info: Stage 3, June 2nd, Busko Zdrój – Busko Zdrój, 21,3km (ITT)
Individual time trial was quite long, so it was key stage for final general standings. CCC Sprandi Polkowice have named some TT specialists for that race, so the squad could step onto the starting ramp with high hopes.
Mateusz Taciak was the first rider of the orange team, to take on the 21-kilometer course. He clocked 26:11, taking a commanding lead. Another favorite, Kamil Gradek was only 6 seconds off the pace, setting second best time. Things look very promising for CCC Sprandi Polkowice, with 1-2 lead, but then young Filip Maciejuk (Poland) bested Taciak’s result by 0,46s. It turned out to be winning time, which also gave him the yellow jersey.
Taciak and Gradek finished the stage in 2nd and 3rd respectively and they also moved up to top 3 in GC. Szymon Sajnok who got 8th place accepted points jersey on the podium.
