Majka takes Tour of Poland victory

Young Polish star Rafal Majka wrapped up overall victory at the Tour of Poland following Saturday's 25km timetrial around Krakow, won by Belgian Kristof Vandewalle.

The 24-year-old Majka took an 18sec lead over Benat Intxausti and 22sec ahead of Jon Izaguirre, both Spaniards riding for Movistar, into the seventh and final stage.

Although Izaguirre finished 14sec ahead of Majka, the Pole did enough to hold on, finishing 13th in the timetrial at 43sec off the winner.

Izaguirre finished second overall at 8sec while Intxausti dropped to third at 22sec.

Majka continued his fine form this year having finished sixth overall at May's Giro d'Italia and won two mountain stages at last month's Tour de France.

Last year's winner Pieter Weening had a disappointing race, ending 37th overall at 10min 52sec.
