The hardest stage of the race around Świecie started pretty slow if we compare it to the previous one. Despite many attacks it took almost twenty kilometers before we saw first successful breakaway. Richard Bannausch from Rsc Cottbus attacked with three more riders and once they were caught he managed to jump again together with Dawid Czubak (KTK Kalisz). Two leaders managed to work pretty well together and reached first intermediate sprint  in Świecie where Czubak won with almost 30 seconds gap.

Mathias Norsgaard drops Alex Mangoulas

The leading duo were caught around 50 kilometers of racing. After another try from Bastian Flicke (Rsc Cottbus) and Dusan Rajovic the peleton splitted on the crosswinds. Team Monkeytown together with BDC and Kel-berg Roskilde put a hammer down on the front and group of around 25 guys rode away from the peleton. Max Kanter was there as well together with most of the favorites.

Norsgaard celebrates solo win

The leaders were keeping a small gap over the chasing peleton. On of the the short hills Mathias Norsgaard tried to ride away and only Alex Mangoulas managed to join him. The duo worked well together before Norsgaard attacked again with just 3 kilometers to go. Mangoulas didn't manage to respond and young Dane could celebrate his second stage win in La Coupe du Président de la Ville de Grudziadz after winning stage 1b last year.

Max Kanter impressed once again. He's really doing great in defending his leader's jersey every day. He was up there on first stage when small group rode away in first kilometers and he was also there today when Dutchies tried to drop him in crosswinds. Tommorow shouldn't be a problem for him to seal overall victory. His biggest rival, and probably the strongest rider in the race, Mathias Norsgaard missed the move on first stage and is currently 50" down on Kanter in gc.
