Despite clashing with the Tour de France, the Tour of Poland often serves up an exciting week of racing with plenty of depth to its start list and a challenging parcours. While the 2016 edition was plauged by inclement weather with a stage cancelled due to the rain, Lotto Soudal's Tim Wellens came out on top to claim the overall victory after an entertaining week of racing.

We've put together a gallery from the race with some candid shots of the riders across the week, signing autographs for the fans, signing on for the stage, waiting for the race to start and hitting the roads of Poland.
