Grand Prix Herning's history

Grand Prix Herning is a one-day race, held in and around Herning. The race is characterized by being one of the most meaningful one-day races in Denmark.
For years, the race has been a UCI-race (international) with the participation of World Tour teams. In 2014 the race became a part of the Danish Cup series and thus one of the races used for selection for the stage race PostNord Danmark Rundt - Tour of Denmark.

In 2021 the race is once again a UCI-race. The race, with its 196 km is defined by its exhausting and demanding gravel road pavements with a total length of about 30 km, which often creates a big elimination of the peloton. The wind of western Jutland will furthermore influence the race. Because of the many gravel road pavements, the race has gotten the nickname "a spring day on the moors" with a hidden tribute to Paris-Roubaix with the nickname "a spring day in hell"

Winners of the race in the 20 year-long history include Claus Michael Møller, Bjarne Riis, Michael Sandstød, Fréderic Moncassin and latest Mads Würtz Schmidt.
