MEN ELITE ROAD RACE: Sunday 29th September 2019
Riders will wind their way into the Yorkshire Dales before a trio of significant climbs come one after another. Splits could well emerge if the pace is pushed at the head of the peloton. Passing through Skipton, Addingham, Ilkley, Burley-in-Wharfedale & Otley. A battle to regain contact should then develop on the fast approach to Harrogate.
Seven laps of the tough and technical Harrogate circuit will ensure only the strongest survive for a chance to claim the iconic rainbow jersey.
MEN JUNIOR ROAD RACE: Thursday 26th September 2019
The first 37km of this rolling parcours sees the peloton head into the Dales where the first key climb of the day is awaiting them at Kidstones. This early ramp should provide an ideal opportunity for a breakaway to move clear, but the peloton will have ample time to plug that gap on the relatively flat section which follows before Burnsall. The route passes through Threshfield and the historic landmarks of Barden Tower and Bolton Abbey will then be passed before the second main climb of the day comes between Beamsley and Blubberhouses. This drag onto the exposed moorland could catch some riders unaware before they sweep into Harrogate and take on three laps of the circuit before one final sprint for victory along Parliament Street.
WOMEN’S ELITE ROAD RACE: Saturday 28th September 2019
This is a mass start event where Women’s national teams come together in a peloton and compete against each other. The winning rider is the first athlete to cross the finish line at the end of the full race distance.
The Women’s elite peloton will leave Bradford and head north into the Yorkshire Dales, passing through Guiseley, Menston & Otley before they begin the route south to the finish in the spa town of Harrogate where they will do 3 laps of the Harrogate circuit.
