Tour de Berlin - Karl-Marx-Allee Sprint

Cycling is back in Karl-Marx-Allee

The "Tour de Berlin - International Youngsters Race" completed its final stage on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022, on the Berlin Boulevard in Karl-Marx-Allee near Alexanderplatz.

 

For decades, Karl-Marx-Allee was the venue for the opening stages and the final stages of the International Peace Tour. In 2022, cycling has now returned to the historic site with the Tour de Berlin. After the stages on the first two days on the Tempelhofer Feld and at the Olympic Stadium, the final distribution of the classification jerseys took place in front of the Kino International, just like at the great Tour de France or the currently running Vuelta a Espana.

Also for the name "Tour de Berlin" it is a new beginning, was it a stage race for amateurs for many years and THE cycling event in the walled West Berlin as well after 1990 World Cup race of the class U23. One of the few stage races in cycling, which were or are held only IN a major city.

To bring the bike races away from the mega event "VeloCity Berlin" back more into the city center, it is owned by the initiative of a new generation in the organization of Berlin cycling, which stands on the side of by BRV President Claudiu Ciurea. They have experience in professional cycling, such as Olympic championship and national coachs for young cyclists Petra Rossner or ex-Sixdays pro Andreas Müller, or are even still active themselves, such as track sprint ace Robert Förstemann.

Together, new concepts are being developed to make cycling in Berlin modern and attractive for both athletes and spectators. Further support comes from prominent athletes such as Olympic champion Kristina Vogel and ex-professional cyclist Jens Voigt, who have taken on the patronage of the stages of the Berlin Stage Tour 2022. During a flying visit, Berlin's LSB President Thomas Härtel was also very enthusiastic about the new momentum in Berlin's cycling scene.

The Berlin Cycling Association has high hopes that the new Tour de Berlin, which this year is reserved for young cyclists, will become the nucleus of many new racing ideas, also in other cycling disciplines.

However, the next cycling highlight in Berlin is already just around the corner. On September 10, 2022, the third round of the UCI World Cup in bicycle polo will take place in Berlin! Ten international teams from Switzerland, Austria, France, the Czech Republic and Germany will be at the start, including the reigning world champions Bernd and Gerhard Mlady from Germany.
