Olav Kooij sprints to victory on first stage of Tour de Pologne


Olav Kooij won the opening stage of the Tour de Pologne on Saturday, a 218.8km run between Kielce and Lublin.

The Jumbo-Visma rider came out on top in a sprint finish ahead of Phil Bauhaus and Jordi Meeus.

Behind them, many riders in the peloton were caught up in a crash just one kilometre from the finish.

“There are a lot of good sprinters here at the start line and it’s also WorldTour level so I would say this is the biggest win this year,” Kooij said. “And we were aiming for a stage win this week, so it’s always nice when you get it.”
