One month to go before 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire

Ground-Breaking Publicity Caravan Announced with One Month to go to the 2019 UCI Road World Championships

One month to go before 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire

To celebrate one month to go until the opening ceremony of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships, Yorkshire 2019 have announced there will be a publicity caravan for the very first time in the event’s 98-year history. Publicity caravans are a popular feature in cycling and involve a wacky and colourful convoy of vehicles travelling ahead of the races handing out freebies and keepsakes at various locations along the route.

The caravan will feature on the Women’s and Men’s Elite Road Races which take place on Saturday 28 September and Sunday 29 September respectively. The flotilla will travel the full route of the women’s race, which sees the riders roll out of Bradford at 11:40am, and pick up the men’s race in Reeth given the relatively early start time of 08:40am in Leeds. Reeth was chosen especially as a way of recognising the resolve and sprit shown in the wake of the severe floods which ravaged parts of Yorkshire last month.

The racing starts on Saturday 21st September with Para-cycling events before the first UCI World Champions are crowned the following day with the maiden Team Time Trial Mixed Relay. This event will replace the separate men’s and women’s trade team time trials, and will be contested by national teams consisting of three male riders and three female riders. The male athletes will ride first and the women will replace them on the road as soon as the second male rider has crossed the finish line. Final timings will be taken when the second female rider crosses the finish line, with the fastest team announced the winner.

The Yorkshire 2019 programme will continue through until Sunday 29th September with Individual Time Trials and Road Races for Junior (Under 18), Under 23 and Elite male and female riders.

Harrogate will serve as the destination town for every race, with start locations across the county to ensure the Championships reach as many people as possible.
