The cycling teams sponsored by ESKOM participate in numerous races in this season attaining successes, achieving notable scores and many a time standing on the podium of winners. We warmly congratulate our cyclists and cheer them on in the upcoming races.
The members of our amateur mountain team may be seen on the road almost every week as they try to participate in several popular MTB and road cycling series as often as possible.
The most important successes in these events include the second place of Sebastian and Ewa Niklewicz, taking part in this year’s North Star, a popular race across difficult terrains of north-eastern Poland, the third place of Artur Niklewicz on the Hobby track in a race organised by Mazovia MTB in Łopuszna near Nowy Targ as well as the result of Gerard Pachuc in the race organised by PolandBike in Wąchock, where he won the firefighters’ competition on July 5.
We invest in the youth and support professionals
The youth training and participating in road cycling races in the ESKOM-BSA Pro Tour team is successful as well. The team could be seen, among others, in this year’s National Championships Poland – Road Race in Sobótka, where they gained valuable experience from that high-ranking event and where three of our talented junior cyclists qualified for national junior championships.
Juniors are also successful in regular events, for example Maciej Noceń, who took the first place during the 5th edition of the Mazovian Road Cycling League. Soon our junior cyclists will participate in Nutella Mini Tour de Pologne (check the programme) – they will cycle for victory in the first week of August.
Professionals from Whistle ESKOM Ziemia Brzeska fight in regular cycling races as well – apart from participating in the championships in Sobótka, they entered a strong team in the international race Baltic Sea-Krkonose and gained points on mountain stage bonuses. Moreover, Piotr Skarżyński took the third place at the opening of the 53th Małopolska Mountain Race (go to the event), which was held in the Kraków square.
We congratulate all cyclists and wish them every success in the future.
