Tour de Pologne-Tour of Poland (World Tour)

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

The Tour of Poland was first run in 1928, the result of a collaboration of a Krakow sports newspaper and the Warsaw Cycling Club. There were only five pre-war editions (the 1939 race ended July 30, a month before the German invasion).

The Tour of Poland wasn't run consistently until 1952. Since then the race has been run every year.

The post-war editions were for amateurs until 1993. 1974, '93 and '95 were "open" races. In 1996 it was classed as a professional race with a 2.5 ranking. In 1998 it was promoted to 2.4 and to 2.3 in 2000. In 2002 it was made a 2.2 competition. In 2005 it was assigned Pro-Tour (now World Tour) status.

The early versions were almost entirely Polish races, the first foreign winners being Italian Francesco Locatelli in 1949 and Belgian Roger Diercken in 1960.
