Watch Road World Championships

Spectators watch the Tour de France in the Yorkshire Dales in 2014

Yorkshire staged the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire has since become a popular part of the international cycling calendar

Yorkshire hosts the first UCI Road World Championships to be held in Britain since 1982 and the BBC will be showing live coverage from 22-29 September.

The pinnacle event in the international road cycling calendar includes a range of men’s and women’s races, plus the inaugural team time trial mixed relay event, starting in different towns and cities throughout Yorkshire, but each finishing in the main competition town of Harrogate.

There will be live coverage of each race across BBC Two, the Red Button and iPlayer, as well as the BBC Sport website and app, where there will also be live text commentary and regular reports, reaction and social media.

Each race discipline – time trial and road – will be covered across all age groups, from junior to elite, in individual and team events.

Clare Balding will lead the coverage on BBC Two and the commentary for all elite races will be Simon Brotherton, Chris Boardman and Rochelle Gilmore.
