Tour de Pologne Returns

Eight years after its first edition, the Tour de Pologne Women will return  in June 2024, with three fascinating stages promising a real spectacle.

“There is no more rapidly growing sport today than women’s cycling. Watching the ladies in action is pure pleasure and the whole cycling world recognises this,” said Czesław Lang, Olympic medalist and organiser of the race. “We already organised such a race eight years ago and now we are back. This year, we will hold a 3-stage event.”

The Tour de Pologne Women 2024 is listed in the 2.2 category on the UCI Women Calendar and will take place over three stages from 28th to 30th June on a route that is still being finalised.

“I know how to develop the race and make it a platform where the most important is sport, but at the same time the event offers promotional and advertising opportunities. Cycling is ideally suited for this, which we confirm every year on the Tour de Pologne UCI WorldTour. The race has become a showcase for our country around the world”, said Czeslaw Lang.

The first edition of the race took place in 2016, at a time when the calendar was not as full of competitions dedicated to the women’s category as it is today. It was the beginning of a competitive era that has now reached an extremely high level, with increasing media coverage and interest. The protagonist that year was Jolanda Neff, now an established Swiss cyclist and mountain biker who rides for Trek Factory Racing team. A cross-country specialist, she has won the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, an elite world title, three World Cups and four elite European titles.

The great achievements of the women’s category and the determination to fight for gender equality have led Czeslaw Lang and his team to work hard to achieve this and return to an event at the level expected.

“Even then I knew that this was the right direction,” Lang confirmed. “A few years have passed and it is worth returning to this idea. I am convinced that the Tour de Pologne Women will be watched with bated breath by everyone. Especially since our female cyclists, headed by Katarzyna Niewiadoma, have been performing sensationally in recent years!”
