The Lotto-Soudal riders in the Tour de Pologne will decide their continuation in the race just before the start of the fifth stage.

The fourth stage of the Polish race was neutralised one day after the crash that caused the decease of Bjorg Lambrecht. All the peloton and the organisation of the race paid their respects to the rider and the team and the Polish public also got the chance to do a homage to the Belgian at the side of the road.

It was a deeply emotional stage, which finished with the rest of the Lotto-Soudal riders crossing the finish line ahead of the peloton and under banners that showed Lambrecht's name and his number in the competition.

The Belgian team has mentioned in a tweet that the riders will decide at the start of the fifth stage of the Polish race if they will continue or not. "After intense consultation and deliberation between our riders and staff, and with the external advice of a trauma specialist, who emphasized the importance of the collective mourning process, the riders got the free choice to take the start," the tweet states.

"Most of them want to start in stage 5, but they are free to decide tomorrow morning."
