Szymon Sajnok showed his great potential in his debut season at the WorldTour level in 2019. Sajnok performed well at La Vuelta a España, which was his first Grand Tour, and finished in the top ten on five occasions, including an impressive third place on the last stage in Madrid.
Sajnok is also double Polish champion in the U-23 category having won the title in both the individual time trial and in the road race. The former Omnium World Champion uses his track skills on the road and has showed his diversity with a fast finish and solid time trialing skills. Sajnok continues to gain more experience on the tough terrain of the Classics, sprinting to fourth place at Bredene Koksijde Classic in 2019.
I knew I wanted to be a professional cyclist when…
After graduating from middle school I went to sports high school. I started achieving some good results and it was a fulfilling feeling.
My greatest racing memory is…
Every time when I get to talk to Polish riders in international races it’s special. One moment that stands out comes from the Presidential Tour of Turkey, which was a farewell race for Przemysław Niemiec. After the last stage we could celebrate with him as he moved on to cycling retirement. I also enjoyed Junior Paris-Roubaix.
The race I dream of winning is…
I would love to take a solo win in Paris-Roubaix. I’m always impressed with the atmosphere there and fans. It also ends on a track.
If I wasn’t a professional cyclist, I would be…
I think I would go to the military, preferably to Operational-Maneuver Response Group.
