EuroEyes Hamburg Cyclassics (Pro Tour)

Winners, Podium, Distance, Average speed

Held in Hamburg, the Hamburg Cyclassic (formerly HEW Cyclassic) was round 6 in the old World Cup competition. In 1998, it became a World Cup race, replacing England's Rochester Classic. It is now part of the Pro Tour competition.

The race is held after the Tour de France. It has been run as late as late as September but currently (2009) it is held in mid-August.

The race is sponsored by Hamburg's power supplier, Vattenfall Europe Hamburg. This firm was originally called HEW, but changed its name in 2006, hence the 2006 name change to Vattenfall for the race as well.

The roughly 250-kilometer race is run in and around Hamburg, Germany. The organizers find enough hills in the area to break up the field. The Hamburg Cyclassics rarely ends in a mass sprint.

In 2016 the race got a new sponsor, EuroEyes.
