The fall season kicks off for real today with the Vattenfall Cyclassic. This 216 km former World Cup race is raced on two loops starting and finishing in the city-centre of Hamburg. Not an easy course by any means but still a race that offers a chance for the sprinters.
The startlist is pretty much an all-star cast as Chris mentioned before. A lot of riders a gearing up for the Vuelta and the World Championships. Should be a great race.
Probable starting time for live video at 15:15 CEST (09:15 AM US EDT, 23:15 AUS EST)
