GP Herning (also known as GLS Express Grand Prix i Herning) is a bicycle race held in Herning, Denmark. Since 2005, the race has been organised as a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour.

The race organizers were unable to secure sponsorships for the 2012 edition of the race and were forced to cancel the event.[1] A week after the planned date of the GP, the 2012 Giro d'Italia started in the city of Herning. In 2013 the GP took place again.
