Bukowina Tatrzanska, August 9th– Stage 7 – Bukovina Resort – Bukowina Tatrzanska – 153km
A big solo victory of Matej Mohorič at the final stage of Tour de Pologne 2019.
The final stage of Tour de Pologne 2019 started today in Bukovina Resort and went all to way back to the close Bukowina Tatrzanska.
It was a very tough one with heartland circled around the Sciana Harnas climb, where the race had its decisive moments.
Matej Mohorič, succeeded to go into the breakaway at 10th kilometre with 11 more riders. How the race unfolded, the Slovenian rider managed to give a harder tempo to his opponents. At the point of 57 km to the finish, Mohorič has stolen a march on the rest of the break by swooping down the descent into Szaflary. He decided to put his head down and kept ongoing. The decisive point was at 20 km to the finish where Matej’s advantage melted from almost 2 minutes up to 30 seconds. But he found all the energy to give another hard push and keep the average advantage of 50 seconds until the finish.
Such a great solo victory of Matej Mohorič !
“We came here with GC ambition, both for me and Pozzovivo. Unfortunately yesterday I didn’t feel well and I dropped. I had only today’s stage in my mind. I faced it with all the left energy after Tour de France and at the start, I was thinking that I wanted to try to take my chance for a stage win if only I could manage to enter the day’s breakaway. I felt good and I tried also to anticipate, attacking with about 60km to go. It was the right move and I managed to take this beautiful win, that I want to dedicate to Bjorg”.
