Problem because they raise the status of a shitty event in Poland to ProTour status ala the Enco Tour.... the race has not had enough years of grounding into the calendar to warrant ProTour status..... the race organisers should have arranged via the consulate to ensure all visas would be fast tracked..... I've spent much time in
Poland and obtaining visas sometimes is very hard work..... the race is a celebration of the country thus they shouldn’t make it so hard……… Its like running a ProTour event in the former soviet socialist republic of Moldova.......!! now Slovenia is a different country... we can all travel freely..... :D
I don`t know what you know about Tour of Poland, but I found that very mocking. This year`s Tour of Poland iz 62nd edition and I think that it`s far from a "shitty" event. It will be very interesting to see what riders think about ToP organisation. I also think that it`s not hard to organise better race than Eneco Tour..just remember, for example, when they missed the right road. That`s a shitty race for me if organisers can`t prevent that and they don`t deserve ProT status.
I would really like to hear from you why ToP is so shitty and I hope that you didn`t consider Vino`s visa.:)
Hehe..don`t compare Poland and Moldova..it`s a big diference..

Ok, I stand corrected. Vino's visa muck up was his fault... he had a Polish visa for a national from Kazakhstan but he brought his French passport ! and so did the other Kazakh’s who live in France..... I also stand corrected because they delayed the start of the race by an hour so Eusktel and Illes could make the start line...... I say shitty as there are many races which didn't make the ProTour which have been around for years and are very prestigious.... However the UCI are trying to open up the ProTour to many countries and not have it based in France, Italy, Spain and Belgium.....

.....before you know it the Coors Classic will be a ProTour event and Kevin Costner might win it ! LOL ! That’s only if he can get those heart problems sorted out…… and if he can beat the Russian with a beard and a football helmet…. ! LOL ! :) :) :)

I'm trying to watch from live streaming and i cant. Is it just me?
You really need a fast connection to see it and it`s not easy. But i-TVP is doing a great job by putting the videos on their page in the evening. Since it`s not so full in the evening it`s easier to see them. One of the videos is always linked on our site:

I think you are right. There are a lot of protour races (Eneco tour, Gent-Wevelgem) who had big problems. The visa problems are ****, but not the fault of the organisation of the Tour of Poland. I will be there (from Friday to Sunday) and will write about my personal experience after i come back. Untill now (the accreditation) my experience with the Lang team, who organized the Tour, is very good! And i think it`s good to make some races more important that are outside the traditional cycling countries and yes why not a protour race in the USA...
