Michal Kwiatkowski extended his Tour of Poland race lead with an assured ride on the race’s queen stage.
He explained: "We were even more lucky with the break than we could have hoped for. The guys did a great job from the start. We got a good break going and it was a good day to control on the front - on narrow, nervous roads. In the final BMC put some pressure on and they wanted to make it hard. We just had to follow.
"Lukasz (Wisniowski), Yogi (Ian Stannard) and Michal (Golas) did a great job all day and then Salva (Puccio) and Pavel (Sivakov) could finish it off together with Sergio (Henao) on the last climb."
