As the season ticks down, opportunities for victory become increasingly slim. At the EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg, Elia Viviani is the two-time defending champion and lines up to defend his title and attempt to make it a hat-trick of wins in Germany.

2016's winner Caleb Ewan leads the line for Lotto-Soudal, while Pascal Ackermann and Peter Sagan feature for Bora-Hansgrohe, the German team looking to take a win on home soil.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
