One of the world’s most unique amateur cycling series – Chasing Cancellara from Swiss cycling legend Fabian Cancellara – steps into its fifth season in 2021 with five events, ranging from a 12km time trial against one of the best time trial riders of all time to a mammoth 280km race in the Swiss Alps.

With monumental cobblestones and bergs, Chasing Cancellara Flanders starts the series in May and Cornèrcard Cancellara Challenge in September offers amateurs a chance to close out the season racing against Cancellara in time trial mode.

“With Chasing Cancellara we are looking forward to give many fans the opportunity to meet their idol,” said organizer Armin Meier. “Fabian Cancellara is proud of his event formats. We want to give Chasing Cancellara participants, with many different proficiency levels, a joint experience with a breath-taking race feeling.”
