Riders react on social media to Tour of Poland stage cancellation due to extreme weather

Teams and riders congratulate Tour of Poland organiser for making decision to cancel Sunday’s stage as torrential rain once again blighted the WorldTour race

Riders React On Social Media To Tour Of Poland Stage Cancellation Due To Extreme Weather

Stage six of the 2016 Tour of Poland1 was abandoned on Sunday due to extremely wet conditions. The riders had completed the first of five laps of a hilly circuit from the Bukovina Resort, but the stage was neutralised and then cancelled on grounds of safety

On Saturday, 85 riders failed to finish stage five after wet and cold conditions, leaving just 100 riders from the original start list2 of 200 in the seven-day WorldTour race. A number of teams are down to just two riders, including Etixx-QuickStep, Astana, Dimension Data and IAM Cycling.

Because of the terrible weather, which surprised riders as well as the organizer, we are sorry to inform the 6th stage has been cancelled.

Lang also made the decision that all of the unpaid Prime prize money from stage six would be donated to charity. Cannondale-Drapac rider Toms Skuji hailed this as good news, saying The Tour of Poland has made two great decisions today .

This is great news! @Tour_de_Pologne has made two great decisions today! Really happy with how this race is run. https://t.co/Yb7OBV1qYQ1516

Belgian Tim Wellens (Lotto-Soudal) won stage five to take the overall race lead by 3-48 over Italian Davide Formolo (Cannondale-Drapac) with Tiesj Bennot (Lotto-Soudal) in third at 4-37. Much better weather is expected for Monday s final time trial stage in Krakow, which covers 25km to decide the overall winner.

British time trial national champion Alex Dowsett18 (Movistar) has targetted the stage, and joked on Twitter Finally, endured six stages of this bunch racing malarkey for a proper race today, TT day. Hoping for good legs.

Alex Dowsett (@alexdowsett) July 18, 201619

The time trial looks to play to Dowsett s strengths, featuring a flat out-and-back route. Dowsett s biggest rivals for the stage win are likely to be team-mate Jonathan Castroviejo (Movistar), Kwiatkowski, Wellens and Manxman Peter Kennaugh (Team Sky).

Team Sky reveal Nicholas Roche’s new Irish national champion’s kit

The British team also revealed the skin suit of new Czech national time trial champion Leopold K nig

Team Sky Reveal Nicholas Roche’s New Irish National Champion’s Kit

Nicholas Roche on stage eighteen of the 2015 Tour of Spain

Not all national champions kits turn out well (just take a look at Tinkoff s current designs for Rafal Majka1 and Roman Kreuziger2), but Team Sky3 have done a pretty decent job over the years of keeping it fairly classy. That s predominantly been through British national champions, from Bradley Wiggins4 and Geraint Thomas5 in 2010 through to Peter Kennaugh s particularly elegant looking kit6 last year. Despite no British champ in this year s roster after Adam Blythe (Tinkoff) took the win in Stockton-on-Tees7 in June, they ve still got Nicolas Roche, who seriously impressed by taking both the national road race and time trial titles of Ireland for 2016/17.

Sky revealed designs of Roche s new Rapha national champs kit on Twitter on Monday, with a generally positive reception. There s no Irish colours around the torso, but a green hoop with a shamrock and the Irish colours on the sleeve.

#TDP2016 kicks off tomorrow and @nicholasroche will debut this beautiful new Irish national champion’s kit! pic.twitter.com/SvXXg00QSm8910

Team Sky (@TeamSky) July 11, 201611

We ll assume there s no white shorts here based on Sky s track record, with the white base of the jersey set to complemented with some black bibs. The team also revealed the colours of their other national champ, Czech time trial champion Leopold K nig.

It s a fairly straightforward design to the skinsuit, with a white top and black bottoms with the Czech national colours.

Team Sky (@TeamSky) July 11, 201615

Roche is set to debut is new colours in the Tour of Poland16, which starts on Tuesday, while K nig will have to wait until the final stage to show off his new skinsuit.
