It’s time for the opening stage of the 2018 Tour de Pologne – UCI World Tour, featuring 7 fractions from August 4 to 10. It all starts from the famous “Rynek Glówny”, which is the main market square in Krakow. Traditionally the first day features a predominantly flat stage, which therefore favors the fast tires in the pack. The stage will feature two mountain primes (category IV), which will assign the first Tauron magenta jersey, and two intermediate primes. After the first in-line part, before the first final sprint in this inaugural stage, the riders will take three laps around the four kilometer city circuit in Krakow.
The classifications for the 2018 Tour de Pologne:
Carrefour yellow jersey (general classification)
Tauron magenta jersey (best climber)
Hyundai white jersey (best sprinter)
Lotto blue jersey (most active rider in the group)
Lotos – Classification for best Polish rider
