Tour of Poland to be shortened

Czeslaw Lang, the man behind the Tour de Pologne said during Saturday's Giro Di Lombardia coverage on Eurosport that 2006 TdP will take place from September 4-10 from Warsaw and will last seven days. However, instead of including a time trial like in previous years, the ProTour event will feature just one stage on the final day, and no time trial at all. This year, the race was seven days and eight stages long.

In 2006, the 63rd Tour de Pologne will start in Warsaw (Warszawa), with probable stage finishes in Torun and Poznan on the earlier, flatter part of the race.
