Majka: last month has been a big step forward
rafalmajka-tinkoff Saturday evening, Rafal Majka performed strongly in the finishing flat time trial and secured the overall win in WorldTour race Tour de Pologne after having won two mountainous stage wins. Rafal was obviously pleased with winning the most prestigious race of his home country.



“This is the biggest overall win of my career. The two stage wins in Tour de France was amazing and now I’m standing here as winner of Tour de Pologne after winning two stages in the mountains. My career has almost been turned upside down during the last months. But I know it takes even more dedication to keep the momentum and progress in the long run”, says Rafal Majka.

Tinkoff-Saxo’s shooting star was leading Tour de Pologne before today’s 25-kilometer long and rather flat time trial in and around Krakow. With two stage wins in the pocket, Majka was brimming with confidence but the big question was whether or not it was enough to defend the overall lead. But Rafal finished 13th, which was enough to secure the overall win 8 seconds in front of Movistar rider Ion Izagirre.

“I’m very satisfied with my performance on the time trial and I believe it’s a promising sign for the future stage races. But the main point is that we’ve worked as a team throughout the entire race. We’ve had big ambitions and spent a lot of time in the front of the peloton. My teammates has given me amazing support and I have deep respect for the work they’ve done”, finishes Rafal Majka, who will now focus on getting some rest before the final part of the season.
