Since then, Sibiu Cycling Tour has become an important and remarkable competition in southeastern Europe, welcoming World Tour, Professional Continental, Continental, and National teams. Held entirely around the city, within Sibiu county, the race normally runs over four days including a prologue on the cobbled streets of the city and two climbing stages, one on the Transfăgărăşan Road to Bâlea Lac and a second to the mountain resort of Păltiniş. The tour is registered as a class 2.1 event and is open to professional athletes – Men Elite and U-23 category. The event is yearly included on the UCI Europe Tour calendar.
