Join us in Düsseldorf!

The last time Germany hosted a Tour de France Grand Départ, Stephen Roche was on the way to completing his famous ’87 Triple Crown. To welcome the visit of the world’s biggest race back onto German soil, we will be right at the heart of the action in Düsseldorf with events around the city that you can be a part of! 

10 Years at the Top

We’ve been mixing it at the highest level of our sport for over ten years now. 2007 marked Canyon’s first forays in the pro peloton, and since then, the rate of development and our desire for true innovation has not let up. Neither have the successes of our pro teams and athletes.

Brought together for the first time ever, take a journey through Canyon’s history in the peloton with historic pro bikes, iconic custom designs, and a selection of the best images from the heart of the race selected by Tino Pohlmann, one of the most renowned Tour de France photographers on the scene.

Where:  Galerie Voss, Mühlengasse 3, 40213 Düsseldorf – just 50 metres from the TT course

When: Friday, 30 June – Sunday, 2 July

Canyon.Boat

What better way to experience a Rhineland city than from the Rhine itself? The Canyon.Boat will be moored on the river right next to the TT course all week long for the Grand Départ. Work up a sweat by taking a spin on one of our Canyon Zwift stations while breathing in one of Düsseldorf’s finest views.

Canyon Crew members will be on-hand at all times if you want to talk through any of our bikes, with helpful advice and tips you need. Interested in placing an order? We’ll walk you through it and give you a free goodie bag with some ride essentials to send you on your way.
