The cycling classic was postponed to September 19, yet the bike races will not be waived on May 1. The innovation for the cycling festival: Eschborn-Frankfurt will be the digital kick-off of the Rad-Bundesliga. Men, women and junior’s male and female compete in the E-Race for the first Bundesliga leadership jersey of the 2021 season.
The prestigious jerseys can be won in two virtual races, for which all registered riders of the "Müller - Die lila Logistik Rad-Bundesliga" are allowed. On the training platform Rouvy, the 40-kilometer route from Eschborn-Frankfurt will be used on May 1 to identify first the fastest rider among female cyclists (categories: women and U19 women) and then among male cyclists (categories: men and U19 m). In the first real race of the Rad-Bundesliga, the winners will already start in the leadership jersey.

Together with the cities of Eschborn and Frankfurt am Main, the Gesellschaft zur Förderung des Radsports has decided to postpone the anniversary editions of the UCI WorldTour race Eschborn-Frankfurt and the sportive event ŠKODA Velotour to September 19, 2021.
Despite all confidence and an adapted event concept, the implementation on the traditional date, May 1st, cannot be guaranteed. Six weeks ahead of the event, reliable planning is challenging, because major events are still prohibited in Germany due to the pandemic. The new date of the event, September 19th, was determined together with the host cities of Eschborn and Frankfurt am Main. The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) today also confirmed this postponement date.
