Short but tricky and slippery stage 5 at Tour de Pologne

Although it was short, today’s stage 5 of the Tour de Pologne was very hard and very tricky as the rain and dirt on the roads made the course slippery. The team worked very hard to close the gap, first to the breakaway and then to Tejay Van Garderen when he attacked. Unfortunately, I was boxed in for the sprint but still, I finished third and took the bonus seconds. We are holding on to the yellow jersey with an advantage of 14 seconds now and I feel in good form but we have two more stages ahead of us.

Dnešná piata etapa Okolo Poľska bola náročná, aj keď bola pomerne krátka, pretože začalo pršať a na ceste to dosť kĺzalo. Tím dnes tvrdo pracoval, aby sme dostihli únik, a tiež Tejaya Van Garderena, keď zaútočil. Nanešťastie, v špurte ma zavreli, skončil som tretí a získal som bonusové sekundy. Celkovo však cítim, že mám dobrú formu, stále máme žltý dres s náskokom 14 sekúnd, ale pred nami sú ešte dve etapy, tak uvidíme, čo sa podarí.
