I think Jens Voigt won last year and Kim Kirchen the year before that (or in 2006?).

Basso is riding this as training for the Vuelta. Former World Champ Igor Astarloa once said that 'nobody cares about Poland'. If I had my way, it wouldn't be a ProTour race.

auscyclefan94, as a fellow Aussie, I hope I can say this without you taking offence, but I think they care about it more than the Tour Down Under. I've been to the TDU quite a few times, and as it happens I'll be in Poland when the Tour of Poland is on next week, so I can give you my roadside take on it next week.

Official site

You have the choice of Polish, English or French as your languages to view the site in. I have been to Poland, and for some reason, aside from Polish, they like to put everything else in French (like being at the post office). Considering most European countries put local language first and English second :confused:

Sylvester Szmyd said he would like to win this one, and since Basso's aiming at Vuelta, Szmyd might be a leader

Probably true... but tdu would be taken alot more seriously if it was scheduled later in the year.

Why be negative?
Poland is a good interesting race, even if you don't like it.

yeah ok... big riders are going to fly all the way to australia for an average race in the middle of the season? I think not. TDU is in the best postion possible i'd say, as a season warm up - get race fit - race.
