The 'Jedermann-Rennen' ('Race for everyone') of the Hamburg ProTour one-day race Cyclassics scheduled to take place on August 19, 2007, has announced a new record of entries: 22,000 cyclists will tackle the course inside of the Northern German city this year, compared to 20,000 last season.

Moreover, the speed in which the available spots were taken was impressive: Within 24 hours after the online registration opened, 13,000 slots were already taken, and the total number of possible participants was taken within one week. Three distances will be ridden: 55 km, 100 km and 155 km.

"This proves very nicely how popular this event is amongst cyclists and that the Vattenfall Cyclassics [race] enjoys high importance for the city of Hamburg," said Peter Poppe, communication director of the event's sponsor, Vattenfall Europe Hamburg AG.
