Date27 September 1988 — 09:00
StatusOlympic
LocationTongil-ro Circuit, Paju
Participants136 from 54 countries
Format196.8 km. (122.3 miles) mass start race.

The 196.8 km. course was very flat and easy, keeping almost 100 of the 136 starters together for the entire race. The outstanding East German sprinter, Olaf Ludwig, was greatly aided by the flat course. Near the race end, he was joined in a break by a major sprint competitor, “The Tashkent Terror,” Dzhamolidin Abduzhaparov, and Ludwig aborted the attack. He and West German Bernd Gröne got away once more briefly afterwards, and Ludwig won the sprint-out easily. With the fall of Berlin Wall in 1990, he became one the first East German riders to ride professionally. His sprinting abilities allowed him to win many races, and in 1990 he won the green jersey as the Points Leader at the Tour de France. His greatest classics victory was the 1992 Amstel Gold Race. As an amateur, Ludwig twice won the Peace Race and won 36 stages in that Eastern European amateur tour.
