Harrogate To Host Cycling World Championship

03 July 2017

Read more

Harrogate will take centre stage after Yorkshire won the opportunity to host the 2019 road world championships. Harrogate will be the main competition centre and will host two circuit races while various locations across Yorkshire have been proposed as race locations, such as Beverley, Doncaster, Leeds, Northallerton, Ripon and York, for a nine-day event in September. 

The government has allocated £25 million for the championships, £15 million of this budget will be used to build 27 cycle sports facilities across the UK. 

Yorkshire won the right to host the event in October of last year, after a joint bid effort between Welcome to Yorkshire, British Cycling and UK Sport and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The last time that the World Championships were hosted in the UK was in 1982 when it took place at Goodwood in West Sussex.

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire said, "We are delighted to announce our intention to start the UCI Road World Championship races in 2019 in all corners of Yorkshire making sure the races take in the splendour of this beautiful and diverse county," 

"This is an unprecedented opportunity to showcase Yorkshire to the world and I have no doubt that every town and village on the final routes will be ready with their famous Yorkshire welcome as seen for the Tour de France and now each year for the Tour de Yorkshire."
