Tour de Pologne
Stage 7: Wieliczka - Kraków - Stage Details

Multiple grand tour stage winner Michael Matthews has closed out the 2014 Tour of Poland with a top ten finish on the final time trial stage this afternoon.

Matthews finished 38seconds behind stage winner Kristof Vandewalle (TFR). Rafal Majka (TCS) won the overall Tour.

The result, together with two podiums earlier in the week, was a positive finish for Matthews who proves to be in solid form despite returning for a crash that kept him out of his first Tour de France.

“He is classy, it is not a surprise that Bling (Matthews) finished with a top ten performance today,” sport director David McPartland said.
