Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Poland) - Press Release: Rémi Cavagna won the time trial in Katowice, while João Almeida bolstered his lead in the GC.
Since turning pro in 2017, Rémi Cavagna raced four times the Tour de Pologne and every year he was on the hunt for a stage win, joining the breakaways, going all-out, and once even coming close to getting that victory, only to be caught by a ruthless peloton just a few kilometers from home. This year, the Frenchman came back at the start, and with him, also the individual time trial returned at Poland’s sole World Tour event, adding to the motivation of the “TGV of Clermont-Ferrand” to finally put his name on the winners’ list here.
One of the favourites at the start of stage 6, taking place over a rolling 19.1km course around Katowice, Cavagna amply confirmed his TT prowess, putting in a flying ride which saw him record the fastest time at the finish by a mile. Rémi, who earlier this week celebrated his 26th birthday, remained in the hot seat until the end of the stage, notching up his third victory of the year, after the ones at the Tour de Romandie and the French Championships.
