SZYMON GODZIEK jumped over the peloton at the Tour of Pologne!
Szymon Godziek, the best Polish freestyle mountain biker, during the last stage of the 74th edition of the Tour de Pologne performed for the first time in history a backflip over the peloton speeding through Bukovina Tatra. And unbelievably for this occasion Simon switched from his mountain bike to a classic Italian road bike. To give the jump a true cycling style.
“The difference between my dirt jumper and the road bike is very big. Tires are thinner, the bars are much narrower, frame geometry is completely different, and comparatively no weight. The road bike is so much lighter and behaves totally differently in the air. The biggest challenge for me was to become familiar with the specifics of riding a bike of this type. I hit the setup many times before and it was not difficult for me, and on the bike I felt very good quickly. The fact that I made such a jump as the first in the world for me is very important. I am glad that it is happening in Poland and on the final stretch of the Tour de Pologne. ” said Szymon Godziek.
