Coming hot on the heels of last Saturday's Strade Bianche in Italy, the return of top class cycling from the coronavirus hiatus continues with the 77th edition of this iconic race across Poland. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of the Tour de Pologne 2020 with our guide below.
The riders took off from the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów on Wednesday, with the five-stage event set to be concluded on Sunday in Kraków.
All 19 UCI WorldTour teams have fielded a squad for this week's race, which covers a gruelling total distance of 911.4km, with the event featuring ProSeries wild cards and Polish national team riders.
While there has been some scintillating race action, including Richard Carapaz's first victory for his new team Ineos with a spellbinding uphill sprint finish on stage 3, the early stages have been somewhat overshadowed by a crash involving Fabio Jakobsen which saw the Deceuninck-QuickStep rider placed in a medically induced coma. The Dutch cyclist has thankfully woken and is currently described as being in a "good" condition.
