Tour de Pologne
Stage 2: Torun - Warszawa - Stage Details

Multiple grand tour stage winner Michael Matthews has won the bunch sprint for second position on stage two of the Tour of Poland this afternoon.

Reigning champion Pieter Weening also finished in the main peloton to protect his title defence ambitions.

The second place for Matthews, 21 seconds behind solo winner Petr Vakoc (OPQ), confirmed the 23-year-old’s return to form after an injury that saw his last minute withdrawal from the Tour de France. 

“It was probably a little bit of a surprise more than anything,” sport director David McPartland said.

“We knew he was going OK but we didn’t think he had come back to such a high level so quickly."
