Race information

The Selby district will feature in two events.

Saturday 21 September – Tadcaster hosts a Para-Cycling International race start

For the very first time, a Para-cycling race will take place alongside the UCI Road World Championships. The race itself will be Para-Cycling Road Races (C1 Event) and will welcome entries from every Paralympic road racing classification. The riders will start from different locations along the same route – including Tadcaster at 2pm - and all finish in Harrogate.

The race will comprise groups of disabled riders (blind and visually impaired, people with cerebral palsy, locomotor disabilities and handcyclists). The riders setting off from Tadcaster include competitors using tandem, adapted bikes and handcycles.

Those riders racing the longest distance will start in Beverley and the shorter courses will begin along one continuous route in Tadcaster, Wetherby and Harrogate.  The riders on the longer routes will be coming into the district at North Duffield (12.43-1.03pm), before heading through Riccall (12.53-1.16pm), Cawood (1-1.27pm) and Ulleskelf (1.09-1.38pm), passing through Tadcaster at around 1.17-1.50pm. These riders will enter the town from the A162, turning right along the High Street, over the bridge and then towards Wighill.

The second category of riders leaving from the Tadcaster start point (expected to be around 100 riders) will set off from the bus station on Commercial Street, heading up the hill and out of town the same way - left towards Wetherby, at around 2pm.

Full race timing information is available here.
