The 22-year-old, who placed third overall in this year’s Tour of Austria, added that he was excited to be competing in the seven-day event with his “highly experienced” teammates.
“With every race I’m developing and I try to build on what I’m learning,” said De Bod, who signed with the WorldTour set-up in August last year.
“I’m also very excited to see what we as a team can achieve in the coming week.”
The first three stages will most likely end in sprint finishes, which will provide opportunities for Cavendish.
The race then heads into the hills, where O’Connor and Gasparotto will look to ride strongly.
“Tour of Poland is always one of those exciting races with short stages, fast sprints and steep explosive racing where positioning is crucial on the narrow roads,” said O’Connor.
“We have men for every stage, so I see no reason why we can’t fight for stage wins this week.”
