Tour de Pologne - Two GC cards for Bora-hansgrohe

The third stage of the Tour de Pologne was a good day for Bora-hansgrohe. Not only is Peter Sagan back in the Yellow Jersey but teammate Rafal Majka is now in third position of the overall standings.

The stage featured four first category climbs and an uphill finish, but Sagan could hold on until the end. "Stage 3 of the Tour de Pologne was a tough one!" said the rider after finishing second. "I managed to stay in a good position on the first four climbs and I gave my all on the steep and hard final climb.

"Thanks to the squad and Rafal for their excellent work today – it feels good to be back in yellow. As I said yesterday, my form is very good, but the race is long and we will take it day by day."

Majka was also strong during the stage and crossed the finish line in third position. "We are very happy with our performance and result today," he commented. "It was a tough final climb but together with Peter we were in the final group, and were well positioned. Unfortunately, I accelerated a bit late in order to take the win.

"It was the first time I was riding here and I didn't know the climb very well. Still, thanks to his second place, Peter has recovered the yellow jersey and I'm sitting third in the GC, just 12 seconds behind him. We now have two cards to play at the Tour de Pologne and we will take all the opportunities in the following stages."
