Thomas, Alaphilippe and Nibali among strong start list for Deutschland Tour 2019

The Deutschland Tour 2019 takes place from August 29 to September 1

Upcoming events

The Deutschland Tour is a four-day race with the 2019 edition boasting a number of high-profile riders.

Geraint Thomas (Ineos) and Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) and Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) are the biggest names set to race in Germany.

This will be the Thomas’ and Nibali’s first race back after the 2019 Tour de France, with Alaphilippe lining up for the Clásica San Sebastián but abandoning soon into the race.

Representing the home nation, will be Bora-Hansgrohe’s Emanuel Buchmann and Pascal Ackermann, with Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal), Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) and André Greipel (Arkéa-Samsic) also expected to contest the sprints.

The race takes place over four stages with the hardest stages defined by short climbs that may not lend themselves to the pure climbers. Overall gaps are likely to be small in a closely fought race with last year’s winner Matej Mohorič (Bahrain-Merida) winning by just six seconds over Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin).
