Renat Khamidulin, general director of Gazprom-RusVelo, explains: «We have very good memories of previous participation in the Tour de Pologne-2014 and we are very happy to take part in it again. This is a very important race for us, because of many reasons. First of all it is a great opportunity to gain experience at the highest levels for our riders. Then it is the only race of the World Tour in eastern Europe, which is a great interest area for us. The team will be led by our sporting director Sergey Ivanov, which won the Tour de Pologne in 1998 and has familiarity with those roads».

«The invitation is also very important for our technical partner Colnago», Renat Khamidulin adds. «Ernesto Colnago celebrated with us the invitation to the Giro d’Italia and now is delighted to return to Poland, because of his brotherly relationship with the race director Czeslaw Lang».
