The Hammer Series
When it comes to the Hammer Series it’s not about the rider: it’s about the team; in order to find who’s the greatest, you need the best. Hammer Series Races will invite the world’s top professional race teams – up to 18 in total – to pick up the gauntlet and hammer it all out: up to 12-13 WorldTour and up to 5-6 Pro-Continental teams. Each team will field a squad of 7 riders for each Hammer Series Race, including their best sprinters, climbers, and time-trialists with any 5 riders competing in each of the 3 challenges.
The reaction to the Hammer Series from riders and team principals has been universally positive: watch the riders reaction in the below video.
