Who's behind the Race Around Poland

Thoughts about race have been in my mind for a long time. I knew there was room for such a party in our part of the world. But two heads are better than one. The concept began to materialize when during a family sushi trip Mateusz suggested the idea of organizing a cycling race. It was the end of December 2019.

All January I was thinking about the concept. Shortly before the winter holidays I called Mateusz reminding him of our conversation. A few days later we were sitting in a pub and working on the plan to prepare Race Around Poland. 

From that moment on, the work got faster and before the end of March we were ready to announce the details of the race. Today we decided to introduce ourselves and by the way wish you all Healthy and Happy Easter!
