Hammer Series is all about the team – there are no individual prizes – with the world’s best pro cycling squads battling to be crowned cycling’s super-team.

Hammer’s dynamic and ground-breaking format made its debut in June 2017 at Hammer Sportzone Limburg, where Team Sky triumphed.

The short format – each race lasting two hours – is perfect for fans at the event, global audiences on TV and social media, not to mention commercial partners and host venues. There are three races on three consecutive days: Hammer Climb, Hammer Sprint and Hammer Chase.


Stavanger will be the base for all three days of racing, with the single location providing an excellent opportunity to maximize impact for partners.


There is much more to Hammer Stavanger than pro racing. ‘Cycling for all’ mass-participation free rides, family rides, and amateur and youth races will create a fun and inclusive three-day festival of cycling.
