Tour of Poland
Stage 6: Wieliczka salt mine - Zakopane - Stage Details

23-year-old Jack Haig took an impressive solo victory today for ORICA-SCOTT on a tough stage six at the Tour of Poland.

The Victorian rider attacked from a reduced front group inside the final 20kilometres and opened up a 50second advantage to claim his first professional victory and the second stage victory this week for ORICA-SCOTT.

The team’s general classification hopeful Adam Yates worked hard to cover the moves in small chasing group behind, eventually crossing the line in ninth place to move up to sixth place overall.

Haig was ecstatic to take the victory today in the WorldTour race on what was a tough and hilly stage.

“I’m super happy to get the win today after trying on stage three and coming relatively close, so to be able to try again and have good enough legs to stay away and pull of the win this time was quite special,” Haig explained. “I think to do it on a stage that was so hard and with so many good guys preparing for the Vuelta, it made it even more special.”
