The second edition of Majka Granfondo grew a lot compared to last year with more than 1000 participants at the start, but the weather conditions were not in favour of the riders as rain showers on both days made it a challenging event.
The 20km time trial on Saturday was won by former pro rider Marcin Karbowy (POL) in a time of just below 25 minutes and an average speed of 48 km/h on the mainly flat course with only a climb in the start. Girts Gevers (LAT) finished second, 1m03 behind Karbowy while Peter Nowacki (POL) got overall third at 1m07.
Kimberly Miller (GER) won the female time trial in a time of 28m28 and an average speed of 42km/h, 32 seconds ahead of Lisanne Immerzeel (NED) and Karolina Ruta-Korytowska (POL).
On Sunday, the 105km granfondo with Rafal Majka at the start was challenging with roads always going up and down for a total elevation of 1400m. Peter Nowacki (POL) outsprinted two compatriots to win in an average speed of 38.5km/h with Daniel Packi and Kacper Kistowski as second and third. The three got away after 10km on the first climb.
Karolina Kolkowicz (POL) was the first female in an average speed of 34.1km/h, four minutes ahead of Sonia Cieciel (POL) while Diana Huczkowska (POL) took overall third 11 minutes behind the winner.
The 72km mediofondo was won by Bartlomiej Borsuk and Marianne Hald.
