CareerEdit

Born in Kalisz, Paterski left Cannondale[3] at the end of the 2013 season, and joined CCC–Polsat–Polkowice for the 2014 season.[1] He had quite a successful 2014 season, winning the Tour of Norway and the mountains classification in his native Tour de Pologne. Later that year, he also won the Memoriał Henryka Łasaka. He started the 2015 season in good form, placing 6th at the Vuelta a Murcia and winning the first stage of the Volta a Catalunya. He followed up these promising results with strong placings in some April classics such as the Amstel Gold Race. At the end of April, Paterski dominated the newly organized Tour of Croatia, winning the overall classification, the points classification and the mountains classification plus two stages.[4] In August, he clinched the mountains classification in the Tour de Pologne for the second consecutive year. 2016 proved to be a comparatively lean year with Paterski scoring just one win, stage 6 at the Bałtyk–Karkonosze Tour where he finished second overall. Another highlight was a sixth place at the UCI World Tour event GP Ouest–France. 2017 was a much more successful season for Paterski with overall victories in the Tour of Małopolska, Szlakiem Walk Majora Hubala and the Coupe des Carpathes.
