25 Years Of Cycling

Since 1996, the BEMER Cyclassics have been Hamburg's cycling race for professionals and everyone. For the 25th time, the race in the Elbe metropolis will inspire around 15,000 expected participants. Over 400,000 participants have already been part of the race since the premiere edition, which has long since gained cult status in the Hanseatic city. Whether you are a rookie or a participant from the very beginning - the BEMER Cyclassics are a "must-do" event in Hamburg's sports summer for everyone.

After the cycling classic could not take place in 2020 due to the worldwide corona crisis, we look hopefully into the future and want to do our part on the way back to normality together with you, the city of Hamburg and the communities in Schleswig-Holstein when we celebrate the belated 25th anniversary in 2021. Let’s race again!

Impressive routes over 60, 100 or 160 kilometres, unforgettable experiences and a spectacular pro race with the stars of the Tour de France await you. With our three distances, we make sure that exactly the right challenge is waiting for you. All courses lead through the Elbe metropolis and its green surroundings on roads that are completely closed to public traffic. The sporting highlight is the goosebumps finish in the heart of Hamburg's city centre, cheered on by thousands of spectators. Compete with your fellow riders, race against the clock or with the aim of crossing the finish line with fun and enjoyment.

The Cycling Classic for everyone

The three fantastic routes that end in the centre of Hamburg have been conquered, tested and enjoyed thousands of times. You can start on your road bike, mountain bike or even city bike. Completely closed roads ensure maximum safety and thanks to our sophisticated registration system you start with riders of the same performance level.

You only live once. And it's up to you to make something special out of it. The BEMER Cyclassics offer you the opportunity to prove yourself. The feeling afterwards will last for eternity.

Germany's most spectacular UCI World Tour Race

Right after you, the best cyclists in the world will fight for every second on the same course. The BEMER Cyclassics are part of a select group of professional cycling races around the world - the UCI World Tour. The Tour de France, for example, also falls into this category.

The starting field is impressive. In recent years, the world's top sprinters were always at the start. The professional race goes over 220 km and ends in the afternoon as a huge spectacle and in front of thousands of fans. After the Italian Elia Viviani was able to defend the title in 2019 for the second time in a row, the cycling world is more as eager to see who will take as the crown of Hamburg in 2021.

Europes biggest cycling festival

Das sportliche Programm wird bereits am Samstag durch das extra schnelle Rennformat des BEMER Cyclassics Battle powered by RAD RACE Formation auf der Mönckebergstraße ergänzt. An den Vortagen misst sich auch der internationale Radsportnachwuchs bei den BEMER Youngclassics auf mehreren Etappen. Ein hochwertiges Messe- und Rahmenprogramm auf Rathausmarkt und Jungfernstieg, mit über 80 Ausstellern der Lifestyle- und Outdoorbranche sowie Information, Entertainment und Mitmach-Aktionen runden die Veranstaltung ab.
