Tinkoff-Saxo embarks on the seven-stage Tour de Pologne as defending champions. For the 2015 edition, the squad eyes opportunities in the medium mountains of the second half of the World Tour race. Robert Kiserlovski and native talent Pawel Poljanski lead the team into action.
 
“Tour de Pologne is an unpredictable race, however we have to play our cards in the second part, where the road kicks up again and again”. Such is the assessment from Tinkoff-Saxo sports director Bruno Cenghialta, who will direct the squad during the 1076km race.
 
“It’s a good possibility for the guys to claim results, especially on stage 4, 5 and 6 after three days that will suit the sprinters. These stages feature many climbs of around five kilometers each, but if you add them up, we actually face 15-20 kilometers of climbing over the course of a short distance. We line up with Kiserlovski as our team captain flanked by Poljanski and also Jesper Hansen, who is very strong at the moment. We believe that it’s possible for them to do a good GC result”, adds Bruno Cenghialta.

Tinkoff-Saxo lines up Robert Kiserlovski, Pawel Poljanski, Jesper Hansen, Chris Anker Sørensen, Ivan Rovny, Evgeny Petrov and three-time Polish TT champion Maceij Bodnar, who returns to racing after his serious crash in California.
 
“We want to aim for a stage win in the later part of the race and our newly crowned Danish champion Chris Anker is also very motivated riding in his national colors. We will work out the final strategy for the very hilly stages, when we’ve passed the first three days according to who is going well and who holds the biggest chance in the classification keeping in mind the 25k TT on the final day”, tells Cenghialta before adding:
 
“In any case, we need to stay attentive, we will see a lot of attacks and it’s important to stay at the front to seize the opportunities as this is a race, where an aggressive approach can pay off. It will be a fast and unpredictable race and we enter it with a dedicated group, where many of them come fresh out of our Livigno altitude training camp”.

Co-captain Pawel Poljanski lines up at the start in Warsaw to ride the biggest race of his home country for the second time after having supported Rafal Majka to win the race in 2014.
 
“I also did Tour de Pologne last year, when my good friend and teammate Rafal Majka won the race. It’s the race of my country and that motivates me. I’m motivated in all races but I can feel that I’m in good shape so I hope that I can do a top result or help my team to achieve one. After Tour of Austria in July, where I crashed before the deciding stage, I traveled directly to our altitude training camp and now I feel well rested and ready to continue a good streak that we started last year”, says Pawel Poljanski, who adds about the race:

“I remember last year, when we won the race and I have some great memories. We might not have Rafal in the squad this year, as he will be doing the Vuelta, but we have the same objectives. We have two initial leaders in Kiserlovski and me – and we will target the hard stages. We have the same tough terrain as last year and the TT will be decisive in the fight for the GC. If we want to win the race, we must take seconds on stage 4, 5 and 6 to have a margin before the TT in Krakow. We will see during the days, who of us has the biggest chance and then we will give our full support, while others might be able to go for a stage win”, concludes Pawel Poljanski.
