Ackermann storms to surprise victory at Tour de Pologne

Pascal Ackermann stormed to victory on stage 4 of the Tour de Pologne from Lesko to Sanok.

Sebastian Molano provided the perfect lead-out to launch Ackermann on the uphill finish as they brought back a late attack from Zdenek Stybar (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) inside the last 150 metres to the line. The German rider was faster than Jordi Meeus and Jonathan Milan.

It’s the 5th career stage win in Poland for Ackermann.

“It’s amazing after the injury I had and I finally feel back and have power in the legs again so it’s really important for the next races and the rest of the season”, said Ackermann.

“The stage was really amazing, we had many climbs but they were not too steep so perfect for myself. I said to myself let’s try today and go and get the victory. I had a brilliant lead-out from Molano and I must thank the team for believing in me today.”
