For the next three years, the race leader’s jersey will be sponsored by Energa.
The 79th edition of the Tour de Pologne, which this year will be held under the motto “Race for Peace,” will see riders fight for the yellow leader’s jersey with
the Energa of ORLEN Group logo.
“I am proud that Energa by ORLEN Group is now the main sponsor of the 79th Tour de Pologne UCI World Tour,” comments Czesław Lang, general manager of the race.
The company, which has supported the cycling event since 2020, is now even more connected to the race with the signing of an agreement that will allow it to be the main sponsor of the next three editions.
“ORLEN Group’s Energa will accompany cyclists on the Tour de Pologne route for the third time. The race has a worldwide scope and, as every year, millions of people will follow the spectacle of the riders in action. Therefore, given the international situation, we would like the race to have an even deeper meaning. Sport teaches rivalry in the spirit of fair play, and today we all need these values,” says Adrianna Sikorska, Energa SA Board Vice President for Communications
A competition under the banner of the principles of brotherhood and peace, with the task of conveying an important and most urgent message. Cycling-and sport in general-can play a key role in combating discrimination, bridging differences between countries and integrating society. Taking advantage of its enormous popularity, the 2022 edition of the Tour de Pologne will be run under the motto Race for Peace to draw the public’s attention to this message.
“At this particularly difficult time for the whole world, and especially for our neighbors in Ukraine, we want the competition to be based more than ever according to the principles of brotherhood and peace. Together, we can convey these values to people, because the Tour de Pologne is an event watched by millions of fans along the route, during the race that passes through some 400 cities, and by those who choose to watch it on television and through other media,” Czesław Lang concludes. “By sticking together and continuing to believe in the human potential of cycling, we can accomplish a lot.”
