The World Tour counts just a handful of one-day races which give the sprinters a chance to go for glory, and one of these is the Cyclassics Hamburg (217.7 km), the main event of the German calendar.
Moreno Hofland will lead Team LottoNL-Jumbo in the Euro Eyes Cyclassics in Hamburg. The team believes the Dutch sprinter can survive the climbs in the final part of the race to contest a predicted bunch gallop together with Dylan Groenewegen.
Next Sunday the WorldTour peloton will be racing in Germany at the Hamburg Cyclassics, a race which was organised for the first time twenty years ago. One of the riders on the start list is German champion André Greipel, who won the race last year.
A race that has predominantly favoured the sprinters, the EuroEyes Cyclassics will be a chance for Tinkoff to test some of the team’s fast men against the quickest in the peloton with British champion, Adam Blythe, and Oscar Gatto leading the way for the team.
A strong eight-rider BMC Racing Team squad will line up at the German UCI WorldTour one-day race EuroEyes Cyclassics this Sunday, 21 August.
Heinrich Haussler, who loves the spring classics in Flanders, can find the same thrill and adrenaline rush in Germany in August.
