Eschborn-Frankfurt – Rund um den Finanzplatz 2017 odds
After the drivers from Germany have always been able to celebrate great successes in recent years, there is now also more and more positive news to announce on the part of the organizers. The UCI officially announced that the race around the Eschborn-Frankfurt financial center will be part of WorldTour next season.
Eschborn-Frankfurt is in the list of the most important cycling races of the season thanks to an expansion of the dates. Ten new competitions have been added to the program by the UCI: the stages of the Amgen Tour of California, the Tour of Turkey and the one-day races Dwars door Vlaanderen, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, Prudential Ride London , Eschborn-Frankfurt and Stradebianche.
The inclusion in the WorldTour calendar of the traditional spring classics is already the third positive news for the Germans this year. Previously, the future of the Cyclassics could be secured in Hamburg, which means that from 2017 on, two German WorldTour races will take place. Furthermore, the ASO and the BDR were already announced at the beginning of July that from the year 2018, the tour of Germany should be carried out again. This event will initially be limited to four stages and will not be part of the WorldTour, but an expansion of the tour will take place in the coming years.
The Race Around the financial center Eschborn-Frankfurt has been carried out since 1962 and was called around the Henninger Turm. Here, drivers such as Eddy Merckx, Walter Godefroot, Rudi Altig, Johan Bruyneel, Erik Zabel, Davide Rebellin and John Degenkolb celebrated the crossover. The last two races in the years 2014 and 2016 went to the Norwegian Alexander Kristoff from the team Katusha. In addition to the professional race, there is also a U23 event as well as an all-around race. Since 2007, an inline skating competition has been carried out on a similar course.
Riders get in and around Frankfurt presented a hilly course. The circulation appeared in the past, yet not hard enough to throw overboard all sprinters. The start is given in the city of Eschborn, after which the riders make a tour of 206.8 kilometers towards the neighboring Frankfurt. During the journey, have to be overcome 2160 altimeters. The toughest of the eight climbs the Mammolshain. This is four times recorded in the match, twice in the last fifty kilometers. The last climb of the Mammolshain is scheduled just over 30 kilometers from the finish. This is often made the difference by the punchers, but the sprinters teams still have time to bring everything together. The finish line in the center of Frankfurt is completely flat.
Eschborn-Frankfurt is thus one of only ten races, which the UCI has included in their calendar. "The release of the new calendar is an important step in the development of professional cycling. In addition to prestigious events that have already proved their worth, the UCI WorldTour is now enriched by some really fantastic races across the globe. I am pleased to see this development, "said UCI President Brian Cookson.
