2012

The 2011 Tour of Beijing was the inaugural running of the Tour of Beijing cycling stage race. It started with an individual time trial around the Beijing Olympic Village on 5 October and finished at the Bird's Nest on 9 October.

The race covered 614.3 kilometres (381.7 mi) across Beijing over five stages, and was the first race to be owned by Global Cycling's governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale, a move which raised some controversy.[2] It was the 25th race of the UCI World Tour season.[3]

The race was won by HTC-Highroad rider Tony Martin, after winning the opening time trial stage and maintaining his advantage to the end of the race.[4] Martin's winning margin over runner-up David Millar of Garmin-Cervélo was 17 seconds, and Team Sky's Chris Froome completed the podium, 9 seconds behind Millar and 26 seconds down on Martin. In the race's other classifications, Denis Galimzyanov of Team Katusha won the points classification, Euskaltel-Euskadi's Igor Antón won the mountains classification, Ben King finished on top of the young rider classification, with Team Sky topping the teams classification.
