It’s national road championships week in several European nations, and two CCC Team riders, Kamil Gradek of Poland and Josef Černy of the Czech Republic, won gold medals riding their CADEX Aero WheelSystems.
Gradek improved on his silver medal finish at the 2019 Polish Time Trial Championship, scoring the win on a 44km course. The 29-year-old was able to build up his form at the Vuelta a Burgos and Tour of Poland stage races in recent weeks, and with his aero setup he clocked a winning average speed of 52 kph.
The 27-year-old Černy was coming off a hard effort at the Tour de Wallonie, where he rode in support of teammate Greg van Avermaet who finished second there. Černy had won the Czech TT title in 2018 and was focused on regaining the national champion’s jersey this year.
