Today marks 100 days to the start of the UCI 2019 Yorkshire
Worlds. For the occasion, Harrogate High School pupils created a
human artwork, and Yorkshire 2019 CEO Andy Hindley presented
official Yorkshire 2019 flags.
There's been a change to the route of the elite women's
individual time trial at the Yorkshire Worlds.
The original route was straight down the A61 from Ripon to
Harrogate, followed by one lap of the Harrogate circuit. The new
route forks off the A61 at Ripley, and takes in Bedlam, Clint,
Birstwith, and Hampsthwaite.
The change may have been made to minimise disruption to traffic,
but the result is a more challenging, technical, and interesting
time trial course.
