Strong time trial elevates Cavagna in Tour de Pologne GC

One of the best time trialists at the Tour de Pologne, Rémi Cavagna confirmed his credentials with a solid display of sheer power on the race’s only stage against the clock, held over a tough 11.8km uphill course between Nowy Targ and Wierch Rusinski.

The penultimate Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl to leave the start house, the Frenchman put together a really nice ITT despite the gradient which stiffened by the kilometer, averaging over 39km/h and stopping the clock after precisely 18 minutes. This saw Cavagna slot into fourth place, where he eventually finished, making some huge gains in the general classification.

“I wanted to go for more today, but I didn’t find the right rhythm from the beginning, the one I wanted to have, and I missed a bit of punch to be able to increase the speed at the end. I could produce the same power and watts, but the power I needed in the first and last kilometers just wasn’t there. But at the end of the day, it’s not a bad result, as I moved up almost twenty places in the standings, which is good with one stage to go”, said Rémi, who is sixth overall now.
