Movistar Team has unveiled its team for the Tour de Pologne, which will be raced between Saturday, July 29 and Friday, August 4. The main novelty in the Spanish team is the return of Fernando Gaviria, who has not raced on the road (he has been competing on the track in Colombia preparing for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games) since the last Giro d'Italia.
We'll see what the Colombian sprinter is capable of achieving, who disappointed in the Giro (he barely managed four top 10s and a fifth place as best result in a race with many opportunities for sprinters). This season he has accumulated 2 victories, one at the start of the Vuelta a San Juan and another at the end of April in Romandie. In Poland he will be looking for his third against rivals like Sam Bennett, Tim Merlier and Olav Kooij.
