Hammer Race

Velon and Infront Sports & Media introduced the Hammer Series in 2017, an innovative and exciting series of pro cycling events, and Stavanger will become the second city to host this revolutionary format.

Tour des Fjords AS is owner and organizer of Hammer Stavanger and Tour des Fjords, which has been running since 2013. From 2018 onwards Tour des Fjords will be split into two races to incorporate the Hammer Series event, guaranteeing the highest-calibre cycling event in Scandinavia.
