WITH just under four months to go until the 2019 UCI Road World Championships the race start and finish times have been announced.

Organisers Yorkshire 2019 expect millions of spectators to line the routes over the nine days of action, with the Yorkshire 2019 Para-Cycling International taking place on Saturday September 21 before the Championships themselves run between Sunday 22 and Sunday 29.

Individual rider/nation start times for the time trial events will be announced in the weeks before the Championships.

Andy Hindley, of Yorkshire 2019, said: “It’s exciting to share these timings as spectators can now plan exactly where and when they want to watch the action.

“That opening weekend with the Yorkshire 2019 Para-Cycling International and inaugural Team Time Trial Mixed Relay is going to start things off with a bang and we’re also arranging a host of family friendly activities across those two days that will be appealing to spectators old and young.

“Once those are done and dusted it’s on to the longest-standing races on the programme – the individual time trials and road race events. Those always prove spectacular occasions with really dramatic racing. We can’t wait for this global celebration of cycling to commence and we look forward to making more exciting announcements in the months to come.”
