The girls and boys were able to experience the flair of a small Tour de France with the stage ride and Jens Voigt, Germany's successful ex-professional and Eurosport commentator, personally sent them out onto the tracks at the Olympic Stadium. The Olympic Stadium is virtually on Jens Voigt's doorstep. The tour was also made possible by numerous members of Berlin's cycling clubs and partners from various companies. Former world champion Robert Förstemann and world championship medal winner Andreas Müller were among those involved in the organization team. With the Tour de Berlin - International Youngsters Race, the Berlin Cycling Association is the first project in Germany to be sponsored by the Rapha Foundation. It was founded in 2019 with the mission of building a better future for cycling and cyclists.


The next generation of cyclists could now be cheered on in Berlin at the weekend. The kids battled for trophies, medals and the yellow jersey for the overall winner, just like the adults. Perhaps there was a future Tadej Pogacar here, who also took part in the Tour in Berlin as a schoolboy.
