CYCLASSICS Pro

The Hamburg Cyclassics debuted in 1996 - with a pro race already consisting of 100 professional cyclists, among them sprint ace Erik Zabel who went ahead and won the race in 2001. But it was Jan Ullrich who initially gave cycling an enormous boost in popularity in Germany in 1997 after achieving his "double": winning both the Tour de France and the Hamburg Cyclassics. The race reached a milestone in 1998 when it obtained World Cup status.

Since 2005, the pro race has been a part of the sport’s peak competition, the UCI World Tour (former ProTour). For this reason, the event is considered to be one of the sport’s major one-day cycling races world-wide. That it is deservedly part of the ProTour despite its comparatively short history is well illustrated by race director Roland Hofer, who emphasises: “Although the race profile may appear more suitable for the sprinters, it can ultimately be won by all types of cyclists and it’s exactly these kind of races that are needed for a well-balanced World Tour.”
