Participating teamsEdit

As the Tour de Pologne is a UCI World Tour event, all eighteen UCI Pro Teams were invited automatically and obliged to enter a team into the race. Along with Team Poland – the Polish national team – six other squads were given wildcard places into the race,[2][3] and as such, formed the event's 25-team peloton. The number of riders allowed per squad will be eight, therefore the start list will contain a total of 200 riders.
