See you at the Worlds?
With its sprawling network of lonesome roads and brutal hills, stretching across a vast, rugged landscape... Yorkshire has grown a global reputation for road cycling. In 2014, they threw ‘the grandest of Grand Départs’, there's the annual legacy race 'the Tour de Yorkshire' and this September, Yorkshire will be home to the 2019 UCI World Championships.
Nestled in the heart of Yorkshire, Harrogate will be the focal point, hosting the finish of every race over the nine days of competition. For the period of 21 - 29 September, its quaint, cobbled streets will be buzzing with a frenzy of cyclists and cycling fanatics, who'll have travelled from far and wide to witness the excitement surrounding the pinnacle event in the international road cycling calendar.
KATUSHA will be based slap bang in the centre of the action! Our Pop Up opens its doors for the duration and we've organised a packed schedule of events, rides, appearances from special guests and pro riders, and much more...
