The 2019 UCI Road World Championships will take place at the end of this month in Yorkshire, in the UK, and give not only locals but the whole world the opportunity to see the sport’s very best riders in action at junior, under-23 and elite level, in both time trials and road races.
The likes of French Tour de France hero Julian Alaphilippe will go up against Slovakia’s three-time world champion Peter Sagan in the 284.5km elite men’s road race, where young pretenders Mathieu van der Poel, of the Netherlands, and Remco Evenepoel (Belgium) will look to upset the apple cart and delight their legions of fans.
Meanwhile, in the women’s race, it’ll be hard to look past the powerful Dutch squad for the winner, which features defending champion Anna van der Breggen, three-time world champion Marianne Vos and this year’s Giro Rosa winner, Annemiek van Vleuten – and last year’s silver medallist, Amanda Spratt, and her strong Australian team, will be trying to give them a run for their money.
You won’t want to miss a moment, and Cyclingnews will have full coverage of the racing right here on the site, besides the viewing options below.
