The UCI World Champs are the most exciting one day races on everyone’s calendar and Yorkshire, widely known as ‘God’s Own County’, is the perfect setting to host these races! After successfully hosting the Tour de France, many teams were so enamored by the fans, the atmosphere and the routes through outstanding countryside, that Yorkshire became successful in hosting the UCI Tour de Yorkshire, which brings crowds out in their thousands every year. Rolling hills, quaint villages, the friendliest folk you will ever meet – Yorkshire is the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow Jersey.
