East German cyclist Günter Hoffmann was a member of the mixed German 100 km time trial team at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, which finished 14th. In the individual road race he came in 78th. In 1968 at Mexico City he represented East Germany and finished 13th with the 100 km time trial team. This team was really unlucky, as teammate Axel Peschel had tire damage early, after only 8 km.

Hoffmann started his career early and claimed the title of the best junior rider at the 1962 Tour de GDR. Two years later he finished second at the Peace Race, which he rode regularly until 1968. In 1965 and 1967 he earned his two East German titles with the 100 km time trial team of ASK Vorwärts Leipzig.
