Are you wondering where would be the best place to watch one or more
of the events at the UCI 2019 Yorkshire Worlds?
It's often better to pick a spot where the competitors are going
uphill; and in Harrogate, there are places where the riders will come
past multiple times, not just once.
HedgehogCycling has suggestions for where to watch each of the UCI
2019 Yorkshire Worlds events.
2019 Yorkshire Worlds in Harrogate will be our town's moment in
the sun. Not just 'a little sunshine' of the kind Nicole brought here
in 1982 at the Eurovision Song Contest, but lots of it.
There's to be a cultural programme as part of Harrogate Welcomes the
World, and Cycle Expo Yorkshire to coincide with the UCI sportive.
All the races finish in Harrogate, and many of them use the UCI 2019

Tour de Yorkshire sportive
On Sunday 22nd September 2019 there's an (open road) official UCI
sportive, starting and finishing in Harrogate. It is open to 5,000
people (and maybe more places will be made available).
There are 3 routes - 72km, 98km, and 145km. From the map, it looks as
though it finishes at the Yorkshire Showground (also where Cycle Expo

Studley Hotel, Harrogate
Harrogate will be thronged with visitors during the UCI 2019
Yorkshire road World Championships. Many hotels and apartments will be

Some local people are renting out private houses, and there's still

be pop-up campsites for the event.

UCI 2019 Yorkshire Worlds road closures
Road closure, Harrogate
Yorkshire County Council page has details of road closures for
the UCI 2019 Yorkshire Worlds.
There are to be fixed road closures on the Harrogate circuit, for the
Yorkshire 2019 Para-Cycling International, and for the time trials.
These road closures will be 'amber' for a time before and after the
racers pass, with crossing and access points open. When the race is
on, they will be 'red'.
Road races only require rolling road closures, similar to those for
the Tour de Yorkshire.
NYCC page has details of
all the road closures by location and by race day. Some schools
have made changes to their opening hours, and that information is also
on the NYCC page.

France, by Département des Yvelines, Licence CC BY-ND 2.0
Too hard for out-and-out sprinters, and not mountainous enough for
climbers, the Yorkshire road race course will favour those riders who
do well in the Spring Classics.
That could mean Peter Sagan, who is used to wearing the World
Champion's rainbow stripes (albeit not just now).
Other contenders include Belgians Philippe Gilbert and Greg van
Avermaet, and Dutchman Mathieu van der Poel.
If he has still got any zing left in his legs after a long season,
Julian Alaphilippe could become World Champion.
