Having won the best young rider award once again in the Giro d’Italia and then notching up victory in the Luxembourg road race championships, Bob Jungels will return to racing after a month-long break in the Tour de Pologne.
The 25 year old will join QuickStep Floors teammates in the race, which begins on July 29.
“I looked over the parcours and I can say it’s going to be a hard race,” he stated. “But it’s also a nice race that I like and I think it is a good option for us riders who didn’t do the Tour de France to try something over here.
“I am for sure keen to do my best in order to get a good result in my first race after this month’s two-week altitude camp in Livigno.”
The team will be completed by Rémi Cavagna, Laurens De Plus, Maximilian Schachmann, Niki Terpstra and former stage winners Davide Martinelli and Petr Vakoc.
