The UCI has confirmed that Yorkshire will host the 2019 World Road Championships, meaning that the sport’s most important championships will return to Britain for the first time since 1982.

The UCI announced Yorkshire as the host for 2019 after a vote by the UCI Management Committee in Qatar at this year’s event. The UCI has already announced that the 2017 World Championships will be held in Bergen, Norway, with Innsbruck in Austria hosting the 2018 races. Hosting the 2019 World Championships is excellent news for British Cycling, that has been hit by a series of scandals in recent weeks and months. 


The UCI also revealed a number of other host locations for future World Championships. Mont-Sainte-Anne in Canada was awarded the 2019 Mountain Bike (and Masters Mountain Bike) World Championships and Heusden-Zolder in Belgium and Houston in the USA will stage the 2019 and 2020 UCI BMX World Championships respectively. The 2020 UCI Track Cycling World Championships will be held in Berlin, Germany.

The UCI also announced that the Junior Track Cycling World Championships will be held at the UCI World Cycling Centre velodrome in Aigle, Switzerland every two years.

“The county has proved it is a fitting host for road cycling’s leading annual event and we are sure there will be world class crowds to match”

Yorkshire celebrates
