Hammer is an innovative new format developed by Velon. Organized by Tour des Fjords AS under the Hammer Series concept, the Stavanger event is part of a global series in which the world's best cycling teams participate. 12 World Tour teams are coming to Hammer Stavanger this year including Team Sky, Mitchelton-Scott, Team Deceuninck-Quick Step, Edvald Boasson Hagen's Team Dimension Data and Alexander Kristoff's UAE Team Emirates. This is giving a new dimension to professional cycling in Norway.
The Hammer concept consists of 3 stages (one per day) in 3 different circuits making it even more intense and audience friendly.
Friday May 24th, 2019 - Hammer Climb:
The first stage consists of a 8.9 km circuit which is to be run 10 times. The start is at Stavanger Forum and the finish line is set on top of Grisabakken.
Saturday May 25th, 2019 - Hammer Sprint:
The sprint stage on the second day consists of an action-packed 9.3-kilometer circuit through the center of Stavanger and Eiganes. The teams will be able to secure points for each time they pass the finish line in the city center of Stavanger. The circuit will be run 10 times, so the audience will have a lot to look forward to.
Sunday May 26th, 2019 - Hammer Chase:
The latest and decisive stage is a team pursuit. The start and finish will be at Stavanger Forum. The riders will pass Hafrsfjord and Gandsfjord 3 times. The starting interval between each team will be determined by the total score from the first two days. The first team with four riders over the finish line will be Hammer Stavanger winner.
Hammer Stavanger brings cycling closer to the fans than any other cycling race in Norway has done before. Both for the spectators along the roads and for the TV audience. Short stages, live cameras, race data from the riders during the race, a cycling festival, a pro-am event, a child ride and a family ride are just some of what Hammer Series offers.

"Hammer is an exciting concept which is also new to me" says Alexander Kristoff. "I know the roads in the area well. All three stages seem to fit me very well. Our team will be fighting for the victory" he assures.
