Giant-Shimano will head into the Tour de Pologne with a young team and a dual approach. While Luka Mezgec will target success in the first fourt sprint stages, the team will try to go for the GC with Georg Preidler, Warren Barguil or Tobias Ludvigsson.

 

The WorldTour stage racing continues this weekend with the seven stage Tour de Pologne.


Team Giant-Shimano head into this race with a strong, young team capable of challenging across many of the different opportunities that the various stages present.

Last year Warren Barguil finished 17th overall and he returns this year following a period of training at high altitude with the team. Also coming to this race from altitude is Nikias Arndt,  Tobias Ludvigsson and Georg Preidler, the last of whom will be hoping for a strong result on GC over a race that suits his capabilities well.

The team is then completed by road captain Johannes Fröhlinger, Thierry Hupond, Luka Mezgec and Ramon Sinkeldam.

"Poland is a nice race to go with a young line-up and get them working well together as a team," said coach Addy Engels.

"We will focus on the sprints in the first half of the week with Luka and then alongside that we will look to ride for a strong GC with one of the guys who can handle the climbs well like Georg.

"The guys are returning from a long period of training without racing, but they have probably four stages to get back into the rhythm before the first real GC test, so there's time to get back up to race speed before this."
