Tour de Pologne
Stage 6: Bukavino Terma Hotel Spa - Bukowina Tatrzanska - Stage Details

The final classified climb of a brutal stage six has ended the chances of a title defence for Pieter Weening at the Tour of Poland today.

Sitting with the general classification contenders for the first seven climbs of the 174km penultimate day, Weening fell victim to the fierce pace set by stage winner Rafal Majka (TSB) on the final climb that featured a maximum incline of 22%. 

Weening crossed the line in 39th position, 6minutes 43seconds behind Majka.

“When the attacks were coming on the steep climb he just didn’t have anything in the legs,” sport director David McPartland said.
