Course of the Deutschland Tour presented

The Deutschland Tour runs through southwestern Germany from August 23-26 and visits five German states in its first new appearance. The terrain between the start in Koblenz and the finale in Stuttgart is very diverse and inspired the course designers to create a race which will leave the question of the final overall winner open until the final day. Sprinters and aggressive Classics riders will all have their chances on the four stages, which cover more than 740 kilometers. In its comeback, the Deutschland Tour is focusing especially on the fans. In addition to a extensive participatory program, downtown finishes in every stage will provide a great cycling experience to the fans.

Former pro rider Fabian Wegmann, who helped to plan the course, said “This Deutschland Tour would have pleased me as an active rider. The stages are quite varied and will reward the aggressive riders. The sprinters and Classics riders have equal chances, so that things will remain exciting up until the final day. In order to be closer to the fans in the finales and to offer a great experience, we have built a closing circuit into every stage."
