Junior men's individual time trial: the route

The junior men's individual time trial is two laps of the Harrogate circuit, which will also be used as part of the route of many other events at the 2019 UCI Road World Championships.

Junior men's individual time trial: the start

West Park, Harrogate

United Reform church & Cathcart House, West Park, Harrogate

The junior men's individual time trial starts at the start/finish point for these Championships, on West Park, in front of the United Reform church.

Junior men's individual time trial: the course

The route takes the competitors along West Park to the Prince of Wales roundabout. Here, they turn right and go up the Otley Road to Harlow Hill (a gradient of about 3.4%). Then it's downhill followed by a flat section on the way to Beckwithshaw.

There's a right turn in Beckwithshaw, down to Oak Beck, then up the other side - a little climb known as Pot Bank. The steepest bit is immediately after crossing the beck, then it eases.

At the roundabout at the top of the road, the competitors turn right on Penny Pot Lane, and descend to cross Oak Beck again. The road bends to the left before the narrow bridge, then bends further left at the other side of the bridge. It will require good skills to keep speed from the descent into the climb.

It's a sharp climb the other side of the beck, on Penny Pot Lane, which turns into Cornwall Road then Harlow Moor Road. Then, there's a left turn down Harlow Moor Drive/Valley Drive, which runs alongside the Valley Gardens, down to the Royal Pump Rooms.

Here, it's a left turn to go back uphill on the other side of the Valley Gardens, on Cornwall Road. Then, the riders will turn right on Hereford Road, taking them into the Duchy estate (which gets its name from the Duchy of Lancaster, because historically the Duke of Lancaster was the landowner here, and in much of the rest of Harrogate).

Kent Road, Harrogate

Kent Road, Harrogate

Kent Road leads the way out of the Duchy estate and to Ripon Road. There, the riders have to turn right towards the town centre, climbing to the crest of the hill, then descending the other side, before swinging right on Swan Road.

They ride past the Swan Hotel and the Mercer Art Gallery, then when they reach the Royal Pump Rooms, they make a sharp left on Crescent Road.

UCI 2019 Harrogate circuit

Parliament Street, Harrogate

The Harrogate circuit is central to the 2019 UCI Road World Championships. The mixed team time trial is exclusively on it, and most of the other races will ride it after a route from elsewhere in Yorkshire. For example, the women's road race does three laps, and the men's road race does seven.
