Team Bahrain Victorious

Bahrain-Victorious' Phil Bauhaus has taken the General Classification lead in the Tour de Pologne after winning the first stage.

The Bahraini team made sure to control the pace in the peloton throughout the stage and after the second breakaway was caught, the stage was sentenced to a bunch sprint. Alvaro Hodeg was the first rider to make a move, but the German rider of Bahrain Victorious was the strongest and crossed the finish line in the first position, also taking the lead of the General Classification.

"I was super confident with our sprinting group to do a super good result today," said Bauhaus. "We’ve had an amazing season so far and we prepared really good for this race. The race was pretty controlled, with three guys in the beginning. It was a long stage, but we took control of it with Kevin. Then 15km to go it started to be a little nervous, but we were together as a team, and the guys did amazing in the final circuit.

"I did a massive pull to get to the front where Haussler was. I was a bit nervous as I was on Gaviria’s wheel and he left a gap to the Quickstep guys 300m to go, so I had to chase it, and it was a bit uphill. I saved a bit of energy for the last 150 meters, had another kick. I was focused to catch Hodeg from Quickstep, and I made it."
