For Neyivadom, the Olympics has been the most important goal of the season. In Tokyo, her long-time friend Anna Plechta rode in the run, Niewiadoma was in the main group and attacked several times, but in the end the others turned out to be better. In the end, it took a disappointing 14th place. Now, in Italy, he can count on a better position, and not just because competitors from Europe will start. After all, there are not so many better strengths in the world from other continents.
The women’s race track, scheduled for Saturday 11 September, is 107 kilometers long and consists of 8 laps, the most difficult of which will be the ascent to Bovo (with a length of 3.6 kilometers, with an average slope of 4.7% of the road). However, the finish line was located on a flat 4km stretch of Piazza Duomo. A day later, the guys will cover the same number of laps, but the loop access section will be longer and the entire route is 179 kilometers.
Compared to the Olympics, the races have to be more organized and controlled by strong national teams. In Tokyo, the lineups were small, which helped Anna Kissenhofer to win the gold medal after a long distance. Now the Austrian has not started and a repeat of her performance by another cyclist seems unreal. Six teams (Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Great Britain and Belgium) would place 8 players each, Poland and four others were entitled to 6. Due to the fact that some places were not used by other white and red countries, they were given an additional place. Apart from Niewiadoma and Plichta, Marta Lach, Karolina Karasiewicz, Aurela Nerlo, Małgorzata Jasińska and Dorota Przęzak will travel.
Niewiadoma, who was built a year ago, is in good condition, a few days ago, Spain’s Ceratizit Challenge from La Vuelta finished sixth, which was won by Dutchman Animek van Vuelten. Among the more serious candidates for European Championship medals are other Dutch women with Marianne Voss, Italians with Elisa Longo Borghini, Belgians with Lotte Kubicki, and Swiss with Marilyn Rosser. Eugenia Pujak, who was born in Poland, will move to the Slovenia national team.
In the men’s race, Michau Kwiatkowski and Rafai Majka will miss the men’s race, and most of the riders are riders with no experience in strong foreign groups. The leader must be Maciej Batyrski, who celebrates his 35th birthday on race day. In addition, Michal Gochak, Jakub Kachmarek, Przemyslav Kasperkevich, Marcin Budzinsky and Szymon Turkez will start. The first ten results will be very good, because the field is very strong.
The starting list includes, among others, the Slovenian Tadej Bogar, Matej Mohorc, the Belgians Remko Evenbeuil, Dylan Tones, the French Romain Bardet, Benoit Cozenfroy, the Italians Sonny Colbrelli, Diego Ulisse of Spain David de la Cruz, Mikel Landa, the Swiss Gino Mader, Marc Audi Hershey, Portuguese or Norwegian Joao Almeida.
