The 2019 UCI Road World Championships are scheduled to be held between 22 and 29 September 2019 in Yorkshire, United Kingdom. It will be the 92nd UCI Road World Championships and the fourth to be held in the United Kingdom. The championships are traditionally hosted by a single town or city but, while each event in 2019 will finish in the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate, the whole county of Yorkshire is the official host.

Race locations[edit]

2019 UCI Road World Championships host locations.

In July 2017, it was announced that Harrogate would host two circuit races and the other races were to start in locations across the county of Yorkshire, including Beverley, Doncaster, Leeds, Northallerton, Ripon and York.[1]

At the 2018 UCI Road World Championships in September 2018, further details for the championships were announced.[2] Harrogate will host the finishes for all eleven races during the eight days of racing,[3] including the new-for-2019 mixed team time trial relay; three of these races will be contested entirely within a circuit of 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) in and around Harrogate. Ripon was announced to hold the start of two time trials, while the men's time trial will start in Northallerton.[4] For the road races, Richmond was announced as the start location for the men's junior road race, while Doncaster would hold the start for the two remaining age-group races.[4] The elite races were announced to be starting in Bradford (women) and Leeds (men) respectively.[2]

The Men's and Women's Elite road races will follow separate routes before entering a 14.1km circuit in and around the town of Harrogate. The Men's Elite Road Race will integrate the route from Stage One of the 2014 Tour de France for the first 185km before completing 7 laps of the final circuit, for a total distance of 296.4km and total elevation 3970m [5]

Legacy[edit]

The legacy of the Worlds event has been reported with £15 million worth of funding to go towards the construction of 27 off-road racing venues around the country, "to ensure that every part of Britain has close access to a closed road circuit, velodrome, BMX track or mountain bike trail".[15]
