Not long after Zwift announced their plan to add the UCI World Championships course in Yorkshire, Zwift released an update today with the new UCI World Championships course. The UCI World Championships will take place September 22-29th. This will be the third UCI World Championship course in Zwift.
The Harrogate circuit will be featured in many of the events mostly towards the end of races. The mixed relay team time trial, men junior and women junior time trial will take place exclusively on the Harrogate circuit.
The Yorkshire course will be part of Zwift main course rotation, meaning you will see it in the calendar along with other Zwift’s Worlds going forward.
