Rafael Majka rides his new UCI Gran Fondo in Poland

The first edition of Majka Granfondo in Myslenice in the south of Poland host a UCI Time Trial and Granfondo which were spread on the routes where UAE pro Rafael Majka does his training rides when he's at home. The 3 stage Tour de France winner and teammate of Tadej Pogacar was nearly Olympic champion when caught back just before the finish at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The 20km time trial on Saturday had its start and finish in Dobczyce (15km west of Myslenice where the road races will be held) and went slightly up to a turning point halfway for a total distance of 20km and 140m of elevation, so can be considered as mostly flat for riders with power.
