The Cyclassics in Hamburg, now the only professional cycling race in the highest UCI World Tour category in Germany, features the world's 18 best cycle teams on the starting line.
The Cyclassics in Hamburg is no longer considered a cycle race only intended for ambitious individualists. Recreational and everyday cyclists, who see cycling as an increasingly important aspect of daily mobility, are increasingly shaping the event. There is also more and more encouragement for newcomers. The Youngclassics, a multi-stage race for licensed cyclists in the U17 age group, is an attractive format with the mid-term objective of establishing it as the leading event of this type in Europe.
