Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck-QuickStep) won the stage 6 individual time trial at the Tour de Pologne, taking the second victory in a race against the clock this season.
The French rider clocked 22:10 on the 19-kilometer course around Katowice, enough to beat his teammate and the race leader João Almeida by 12 seconds and Polish champion Maciej Bodnar (Bora-hansgrohe) by 16 seconds.
Almeida maintained his grip on the general classification and will seal the overall victory tomorrow on a sprint stage in Kraków. The young Portuguese rider, winner of stages 2 and 4, managed to extend his lead over Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious) to 20 seconds and hold off Michał Kwiatkowski (Ineos Grenadiers), who moved up to third overall after clocking 5th time on the day.
“I am really happy with the victory, it was my objective at the Tour de Pologne. A time trial is something I like. It was a perfect distance for me. 20 kilometres is not too long, not too short, you can really make the difference. We are really happy with the team because we finished 1-2,” Cavagna said in an interview.
