Tour of Poland 2020 start list

Mark Cavendish, Remco Evenepoel and Dylan Groenewegen are some of the big names lining up at the Stadion Slaski

The Tour of Poland is the second portion of WorldTour racing served up to us since the Covid-19 lockdown and it proves to be as exciting as ever, with a star-studded lineup and plenty of inflatables.

The race will start on August 5, exactly one year after the tragic death of young Belgian cyclist, Bjorg Lambrecht and the number he wore, 143, has been retired from the race.

The first two and final days are for the sprinters, with Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma), Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) and Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) being three of the big names expected to compete for stage wins, with Mark Cavendish (Bahrain-McLaren) set to face them in an attempt to get into his team’s Tour de France squad.
