Versatility is in demand at the Deutschland Tour 2022. Prologue, sprint finish, selective finish lap, mountain finish and classic course - the path to overall victory requires a complete racer this year. 710 kilometers and more than 11,000 meters of altitude await the world's best professionals at the end of August. Over five race days, the route will take them from the cultural city of Weimar in the Free State of Thuringia to the capital of Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart.
"The 2022 Deutschland Tour is a board. Of all the previous editions, it certainly has the most difficult program. A great variety is required in the five days and for the first time we are also attracting the riders who are more resistant to the mountains. The mountain finish on the Schauinsland will bring a preliminary decision, but it will remain exciting until the end, because the difficult final stage with the Stuttgart Herdweg can overturn the classification once again. The ideal candidate? An explosive all-rounder who can climb well has the best chances," is the forecast of Fabian Wegmann, Sport Director of the Deutschland Tour.
