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.

Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida), Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and André Greipel (Arkéa-Samsic) also line up for the race expected to finish in its usual bunch finish, but here's the complete start list of riders who will roll out of Hamburg.

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. I'm 6'0", 26 years old, have a strong hairline and have an adequate amount of savings for someone my age. I'm very single at the minute so if you know anyone, hit me up.


Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab, reporting about students evacuating their bowels on nightclub dancefloors and consecrating their love on lecture hall floors. 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.
