Schulze gets his win

Andre Schulze (PSK Whirlpool-Author) won the afternoon's stage of Course de Solidarnosc et des Champions Olympiques and took over the leader's jersey. German beat his compatriot Tino Meier (LKT Team Brandenburg) and Frenchman Denis Flahaut (ISD Continental).

"It was very chaotic finish," Schulze said."I was in a great position, and I timed my sprint perfectly. I feel that I'm in a good shape I am glad that today things came together so well for me. In the morning, I took second, and in the evening, I managed to win and claim the leader's jersey."

The 78-kilometer long stage was held under ideal weather conditions and at a very fast pace. Many riders tried to break off the front, but only one was able to build a substantial gap. It was Wojciech Ziolkowski (DHL Author) who jumped away from the bunch at 46-kilometer mark. He built a 1:30 lead but was caught on the second of three five-kilometer laps in Belchatow. Before he was reeled in by the bunch, he was joined by Jurij Agarkow (ISD Continental).

CCC Polsat Polkowice controlled the field in final part of stage and tried to lead out their sprinter Krzysztof Jezowski but the former Polish champion could not deliver as he was passed by the winner Schulze, Tino Meier (LKT Team Brandenburg) and Denis Flahaut (ISD Continental).

It was the third win of the season for Schulze, and all three of them have been achieved in Poland. In the overall classification, the German now has a four-second lead over Adam Wadecki, with Steffen Radochla third, five seconds down.
