25 Years Of Cycling

Since 1996 the EuroEyes Cyclassics are the Hamburg bike race for everyone. For the 25th time, the race in the Elbe metropolis will thrill around 15,000 expected participants. Since the premiere edition, over 400,000 participants have already been part of the race, which has long since achieved cult status in the Hanseatic city. Whether as a rookie or as a participant from the very beginning - the EuroEyes Cyclassics are a "must-do" event for everyone in Hamburg's summer of sport.

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.

Germany's most spectacular UCI World Tour Race

Immediately after you, the best cyclists in the world fight for every second on the same course. The EuroEyes Cyclassics are part of a selected circle of professional cycling races around the world - the UCI World Tour, which also includes the Tour de France amongst others.

Das Starterfeld kann sich sehen lassen. In den letzten Jahren war immer die Weltspitze der Sprinter am Start. Das Profirennen geht über gut 220 km und endet Nachmittags als riesiges Spektakel und vor tausenden Fans. Nachdem der Italiener Elia Viviani in 2019 zum zweiten Mal in Folge den Titel verteidigen konnte, ist die Radsportwelt mehr als gespannt, wem die Krone Hamburgs in 2021 gebühren wird.

Europes biggest cycling festival

The sportive program will kick off on Saturday with the extremely fast and exciting race format of the EuroEyes Cyclassics Battle powered by RAD RACE on the Mönckebergstraße.
