UCI Road World Championships - race information

You can find here all about the UCI Road World Championships.

The Selby district will feature in two events.

Saturday 21 September – Tadcaster hosts a 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 four different locations along the same route – including Tadcaster - and all finish in Harrogate.

The race will comprise four groups of disabled riders (blind and visually impaired, people with cerebral palsy, locomotor disabilities and handcyclists) and a total of 13 classifications for men and women. Riders are placed in the appropriate classification in the light of their functional capacity.

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, before heading through Riccall, Cawood and Ulleskelf.

Friday 27 September – young elite riders pass through Selby district

The women’s junior and men’s under-23 road races will pass through the Selby district, as they make their way from Doncaster to Harrogate.  These races will come into our area at Kellington, before heading to Monk Fryston, Sherburn-in-Elmet and Tadcaster.
