Doncaster hosted the UCI Road World Championships 2019, with two stage starts from The Dome on Friday 27th September 2019.
When the UCI Road World Championships came to Doncaster
A major event in the world cycling calendar, the UCI Road World Championships ran from 21-29 September 2019. Over the nine days of exhilarating racing action, the world’s elite road cyclists competed across a number of disciplines, including a range of men’s and women’s races, across age groups from junior to elite, starting in different towns and cities throughout Yorkshire and each finishing in the main competition town of Harrogate.
The event was a huge success with residents and visitors enjoying the start at the new Cycle Track near The Dome and communities lining the route to watch the competitors zoom past.
Doncaster Council would like to say a big thank you to all the Communities / Schools / Businesses and Volunteers who delivered events, decorated along the route, promoted the event and much more which ensured Doncaster once again stood out as getting in the spirit for this massive international Sporting event.
Feedback form those involved in the planning including Yorkshire 2019, UCI, British Cycling, Sport England and Welcome to Yorkshire was extremely positive, highlighting our approach to engaging communities and schools as best practice and in particular our approach to rider sign on at the start, now setting the bench mark for all other cycling events.
Despite the weather we are sure those riders who set out from Doncaster will have fond memories of their ride across the Borough that will hopefully live with them for a long time.
