Finally ! After finishing second the day before yesterday, Frenchman Arnaud Démare ended his week victoriously by winning the seventh and final stage of the Tour of Poland in a sprint. He was one bike ahead of Dutchman Olav Kooij (Jumbo-Visma) and German Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain-Victorius) on the line. Double blow for the Picard who also leaves with the jersey of best sprinter. In a predictable scenario with a 1st category climb located more than 130 kilometers from the finish, the big thighs of the peloton had plenty of time to come back to the breakaways of the day. Alessandro De Marchi (Israel Premier Tech) and the Frenchman Nans Peters (AG2R Citroën Team), who joined him 10 kilometers from the par line, were the last to abdicate. It will therefore have been necessary to wait for the last stage to see a sprint on a wide and straight road allowing the sprinters to let their power do the talking rather than avoiding falls. In this game, Arnaud Démare, despite the absence of a train to take him, stuck well in the aspiration of his opponents to arrive in overspeed in the last 150 meters and raise his arms on the line. In the final general classification, Ethan Hayter, the 23-year-old British prodigy won this Tour of Poland thanks in particular to his excellent time trial on Thursday. He precedes the Dutchman Thymen Arensman (DSM), winner of the time trial, and the Spaniard Pello Bilbao (Bahrain-Victorius). The first French Remi Cavagna (Quick Step Alpha-Vinyl) finished 6th in the event.
