This weekend sees the start of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships which will run from 22nd – 29th September. The World Championships sees some of the world’s best cyclists competing alongside each other and we are thrilled that not one, but two, OVs have been selected to compete for Great Britain!
Hayley Simmonds (Cr 99-06) will compete in the Elite Women’s Time Trial and Lizzy Banks (Ch 02-09) in the Elite Women’s Road Race.
The Championships are taking place in Yorkshire, seeing Britain hosting the UCI World Road Championships for the first time since 1982. The races will all start across different towns and cities across Yorkshire, with every race finishing in Harrogate. Lizzy currently cycles for the UCI team ‘Bigla Pro Cycling’ based in Switzerland and Hayley for ‘BTC City Ljubljana’ in Slovenia. Good luck Hayley and Lizzy!
