Chance for sprinters? ORLEN Nations Grand Prix enters Poland

ORLEN Nations Grand Prix is entering its decisive phase. Just like last year, the final two stages will be held in southern Poland. Today riders will tackle the longest stage, the only one that might end with a sprint finish. However this does not mean that the route from BUKOVINA Resort, Niedzica to Jasło will be flat…

Tired after three days of intense racing, the ORLEN Nations Grand Prix peloton is now in Poland, where the fourth stage of this year’s event will take place. The competition will unfold on a route rich in climbs from BUKOVINA Resort, Niedzica to Jasło.

One thing is certain: there will be plenty to admire along the way. The race will start in the breathtaking Niedzica, and along the route, the cyclists will tackle numerous climbs amidst beautiful scenery. The route once again includes two mountain prizes (Kamienica, Popradowa Niżna) – the leader in this classification is the Italian Pietro Mattio, who has been wearing the green jersey for two days and has a significant lead.

Despite the many climbs, it’s not out of the question that we might see a spectacular sprint finish in Jasło. Today’s stage will be the only opportunity for sprinters to fight for a victory. The British team will certainly be highly motivated, as they have yet to win a stage despite their active riding. Polish fans can cheer for Radosław Frątczak from the national team, who finished 2nd in last year’s Tour de l’Avenir stage 2!

The general classification leader after yesterday’s stage remains the Frenchman Mathys Rondel.

An exciting 175 kilometers of racing, with battles on the climbs and many twists and turns, awaits us. The ORLEN Nations Grand Prix 2024 has already accustomed us to this!

Today’s stage will be broadcasted in various TVs such as TVP Sport, CT Sport+ and Eurosport Player from 14:45.
