– I am very happy and touched by this unique initiative. The Tour de Pologne is an event that attracts millions of fans in Poland, it is a brand recognizable outside the country, where we effectively promote our homeland through the sport. The postage stamp with the anniversary logo of the race is another opportunity to promote the race and to celebrate the 95th birthday of the event, which was held for the first time in 1928, but above all, it is really a very special distinction,” said Czeslaw Lang, organizer of the Tour de Pologne.
