Yorkshire Road World Championships 2019: Elite women’s road race start list

List of starters for the elite women's road race at the 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire on Saturday September 28

The elite women’s road race at the 2019 UCI World Championships takes place in Yorkshire on Saturday, September 23.

Riders will fight for the coveted rainbow jersey of world champion over 149.5 kilometres, with a 105km lead up to three laps of a Harrogate town centre finishing circuit.

Defending women’s champion Anna van der Breggen (Netherlands) returns and will wear the number one plate.

The Dutch team contains several very serious contenders: the dominant Annemiek van Vleuten, winner of the 2019 Giro Rosa, Strade Bianche and Liège–Bastogne–Liège, reigning champion Van der Breggen as well as Marianne Vos, who has proved formidable in several uphill sprints this year – winning stages two, three, seven and 10 of the Giro Rosa.

Great Britain is backing Yorkshire raised Lizzie Deignan. The 30-year-old last wore the stripes after winning in 2015, and has set the home World Championships as a major goal since returning to competition after the birth of her first child. She’s joined by National road race champion, Alice Barnes plus former champion and sister Hannah Barnes, Lizzy Banks, Nikki Juniper and Anna Henderson.
