Pavel Sivakov (INEOS) takes the overall at the Tour de Pologne

Matej Mohorič (Bahrain Merida) wrapped up the seven stage Tour of Poland with a solo win on the final stage, 55 seconds ahead of American Neilson Powless (Team Jumbo-Visma) with Gianluca Brambilla (Trek – Segafredo) third at 1’07” with another four breakaway riders further back still.

The gaps mirrored a roller coaster stage that saw the peloton heavily fragmented with finishers stretched out over nearly 20 minutes. The result played into the hands of Sivakov who started the day second overall but moved into top spot after finishing comfortably in the first big group, 2’15” down while overnight leader Jonas Vingegaard (Team Jumbo-Visma) who had rocketed up the GC 58 places after beating Sivakov and Hindley in a three way sprint on Stage 6, plummeted 25 places after finishing 14’30” down on the day’s winner.

Rounding out the rest of the GC podium were Aussie Hindley (Team Sunweb) at just 2″ back and Italy’s Diego Ulissi (UAE-Team Emirates) at 12″.
