The fourth stage of the Tour de Pologne will be neutralised after the death of Lotto-Soudal's Bjorg Lambrecht.

Former professional rider and chairman of the Professional Riders Association in Polan Jaroslaw Marycz, has explained the way the next stage of the race will develop after the tragic accident of the Belgian rider. "The riders will go from the start to the finish and they will do only one lap. No racing," he commented on Twitter.

"If Lotto-Soudal starts tomorrow, they will cross the finish line in front of the peloton."

The 22-year-old Lambrecht reportedly crashed against a concrete column and received CPR on the spot before being rushed to a hospital in the city of Rybnik, where later on the day he was confirmed to have died.

The fourth stage of the Polish race will take the riders between Jaworzno and Slaskie, Kocierz. The route was supposed to be 173 kilometres long, with a finish in a 38.5-kilometre circuit that the rider will go through only once and not twice as planned.
