The Cycling Stars of Tomorrow
At the most well-known German junior stage race, the BEMER Youngclassics, young international cyclists compete against each other. The BEMER Youngclassics, the stage race for the U17 age group, form the prelude to the BEMER Cyclassics. A total of 25 teams, each with six riders, will start in the three stages.
Over the years, the BEMER Youngclassics have developed into one of the most important tours in the U17 age group. Many former participants now have a professional contract with one of the 18 UCI WorldTeams, such as the German riders Pascal Ackermann (Team BORA - hansgrohe), Nikias Arndt (Team Sunweb), Nils Politt (Team Israel Start-Up Nation), Jasha Sütterlin (Sunweb), Phil Bauhaus (Team Bahrain McLaren) or the Belgian Jasper Stuyven (Trek - Segafredo).
