With 500 days to go until the start of the 2019 UCI World Championships in Yorkshire, Yorkshire 2019 Ltd (the company responsible for the delivery of the event) launched its official logo yesterday.

The logo was created in Leeds by design agency Elmwood. It is centred around the Yorkshire 'Y', and is intended to convey an impression of an approaching peloton, and the rush of bicycle wheels. It incorporates the UCI's rainbow colours.

UCI World Championships 2019 Yorkshire: first details emerge

The first details of the 2019 UCI World Championships in Yorkshire are emerging, following the UCI decision on 12th October 2016 to award the event to the White Rose county.

According to a Press Association report in the Guardian, the routes for 2019 are '90% mapped out, and all the races will finish in Harrogate, with starts spread out across all four corners of the county.'

Sir Gary Verity says that every Tour de Yorkshire between now and 2019 will be a dress rehearsal for the World Championship races. 'When those routes are formally announced for 2019, if you look back at what we had for the Tour de France and what we've had for the different editions of the Tour de Yorkshire, you'll understand what we were doing. We're still testing some stuff to see if it will all work, and what we need to do slightly better.'

As well as Harrogate, it appears that Scarborough will feature strongly in the Tour de Yorkshire and World Championships. Verity: 'I would love to go there every year. Obviously that's for the powers that be in Scarborough to think about, but it's a great location, an iconic location, and whether we do a start or a finish, it's a fantastic backdrop which lends itself to a great bike race. We have to fit in the landmarks, Scarborough is one, and we have to make sure that becomes part of our DNA for this race.'
