Tour de Pologne
Stage 5: Zakopane - Strbske Pleso - Stage Details

Reigning champion Pieter Weening has shown his title defence intentions with a late attack on stage five of the Tour of Poland.

The brave move with one kilometre left to ride was closed down in the final few hundred metres, Weening settling for 14th position on the same time as stage winner Rafa Majka (TSB).

The result, on what was the first mountain stage of the Tour, has moved Weening into 11th position overall, ten seconds behind overall leader Petr Vacok (OPQ).

“Pieter got caught but it could have gone either way,” sport director David McPartland said.
