Pavel Sivakov (Team Ineos) has taken the overall victory at the 2019 Tour de Pologne by only two seconds over Sunweb's Jai Hindley.

The 22-year-old and his team did a good job on the sixth and seven stages of the race, staying at the group of the favourites at all times. After the work on the day before -when Sivakov managed to take some time over the other contenders- he only had to remain with the GC group and be aware of the movements of the rest and that is what he did.

Sivakov crossed the finish line at a bit more than two minutes from the stage winner Matej Mohoric and took the title of the Polish race. "This yellow jersey was a victory that started yesterday," said the Russian. "Yesterday was chaos and today was much more controlled. Of course, the victory was built yesterday and today was more about controlling that and trying to drop the leader and take the jersey and this is what happened. The team was amazing once more. Today (Tao) Geoghegan was super impressive. He was along with me in the final and maybe he was even stronger than me in this race, and he dedicated himself as my wingman, so I want to thank all the guys for that.

"We have a really young, strong squad, there is a good atmosphere among us and I would say the future is looking pretty good. Now my next objective is to try to do something at the World Championships. I won’t be going to the Vuelta so I will try to do something there."
