Road World Championships Day 7: Doncaster to Harrogate & Harrogate Circuit


West Park
The Stray


The Junior Women’s race will begin in Doncaster South Yorkshire.  Doncaster can trace its routes back to Roman Britain, but the town we see today was shaped by the Railway industry and the industrial revolution.  The famous steam locomotives Mallard and Flying Scotsman were built in Doncaster.

With a unique profile for the 2019 World Championships this route starts out largely level as it leaves Doncaster and heads north following the River Don, before turning west to Tadcaster.  This will be perfect road for a good breakaway to establish, and those riders who feel ambitious may plan to be part of it

Past the halfway point the road becomes less even and small kickers will start to test the legs. As the route leaves Wetherby and Spofforth there is little more flat and the approach to Harrogate is marked by a rolling terrain that could see a leading group cement their lead.

This race will cross Harrogate from east to west, almost leaving the town before a tight technical turn will bring them back on course for the finish line.

The last 2 km into Harrogate packs in the excitement with tight technical turns, and with no finishing loop in this race it is a straight sprint to the finish line to crown the Women’s Junior World Champion for 2019.

In the afternoon, the men’s Under 23 will set off from Doncaster on the same route as the Womens race earlier in the day until they leave Tadcaster, then they will detour north to take in Ripon and series of challenging climbs in Nidderdale.  This series of challenges will culminate with the classic Tour de Yorkshire climb of Greenhow Hill, a long and draining ascent popular with locals and featuring some seriously steep sections.  The route then rolls out of Nidderdale and back to Harrogate, for three laps of the Harrogate circuit before its 193km comes to an end and the new World Champion is decided.
