RusVelo in its first ever UCI World Tour race
logo rusvelo RusVelo has arrived to Poland where it will take its debut as a wildcard holder in a World Tour race, the 71st Tour de Pologne. Ivan Balykin, Sergey Firsanov, Tomofey Kritskiy, Sergey Lagutin, Roman Maikin, Artem Ovechkin, Anrey Solomennikov and Ilnur Zakarin compose the line-up; Sergey Honchar leads the squad as a sports director.

RusVelo team general manager Renat Khamidulin said:
“It’s a milestone in the history of the team; and it’s a great honor for us to get this invitation. We see it as a confirmation of the fact that RusVelo has entered a new stage of its evolution. Sure enough, to play also-runs or rookies hanging on for dear life is not what we come here for. We have a complete squad made up of riders capable of getting high in general standings as well as stage-hunters. Just one recent illustration: less than a week ago, Roman Maikin stood on the podium of Giro della Toscana side by side with Peter Weening, last year’s Tour de Pologne GC winner. This season all the links – riders, staff and the sports directors, form a well-linked chain. We would also like to use the occasion for expressing our gratitude to the team’s sponsors and partners whose constant and reliable support makes it all possible”.
