Eleven UCI WorldTour Teams, three Pro Continental Teams and the Hong Kong National Team raced all-out in Hammer Hong Kong, the first and only Asian leg of the revolutionary international professional Hammer Series, a Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Asia Tour Class 1.1 Road Race.

Hammer Series 2018, which kicked off in Stavanger, Norway in May and continued in Limburg, Netherlands in June, presented the finale in Hong Kong. Mitchelton-Scott, secured its first-ever finale victory, and was crowned Hammer Series Winner 2018.

Earlier in the day, thousands of amateur cyclists from Hong Kong and around the world participated in the equally exciting 50km or 30km rides, and enjoyed the breathtaking ride through the diverse cityscape against Hong Kong’s world-famous skyline and fantastic view from three spectacular Hong Kong landmarks: Tsing Ma Bridge, Ting Kau Bridge and Stonecutters Bridge.
