The elite men's individual time trial at the UCI 2019 Yorkshire Worlds follows an arc from Northallerton south to Harrogate. This route through the countryside features a number of dips down to rivers, with a kick up the other side of the bridge each time.

The top-class riders who won't be there (Tom Dumoulin, Chris Froome) are worth noting. It's probably not a course for a pure powerhouse, but for someone who can cope with the disruptions to their rhythm caused by the ups and downs along the way.

Rohan Dennis of Australia is the defending champion. Geraint Thomas was targeting this event, but pulled out on 21st September 2019 - so please no longer vote for him.
