British National Road Race Championships 2019

The British National Road Race Championships 2019 is on Sunday 30th June and will see the best British cyclists battle it out to be crowned the British road champion in Norwich city centre. Hosted in the Norfolk region, the race is the crowning event of the Great British Cycling Festival.

The current British champion is Connor Swift (Team Madison Genesis), who soloed away with 12 km left of the race to win the 2018 title in Stamfordham, Northumberland. Adam Blythe (Team Lotto Soudal), who won the race in 2016, and Owain Doull (Team INEOS) rounded off the podium.

Swift’s decisive attack took the breakaway group including Doull, Blythe, Ben Hetherington (Team Memil CCN Pro Cycling), Fred Wright (Team 100% Me) and Robert Scott (Team Wiggins) by surprise, and despite Blythe trying to close the gap, Swift’s lead was too big.

The road race is the last event of the cycling festival, coming after the time trials, which were won last year by Geraint Thomas (Team INEOS) just three weeks before his remarkable victory in the Tour de France.

The 2019 race route profile

The 2019 race will take the British riders on a 125-mile loop, starting and finishing in Norwich. The route heads through Wroxham, on to Cromer and then back via Foulsham and Booton.

Regarding this year's race, Jonathan Rigby, British Cycling’s Commercial Director, said: “We’re delighted to be able to confirm these routes. The list of previous winners of the road race or time trial titles – including the likes of Laura Kenny, Mark Cavendish, Lizzie Deignan and Geraint Thomas – gives some indication of the prestige of these titles, and to see them contested in Norfolk’s truly stunning surroundings will be a wonderful spectacle.

We have worked closely with Golazo, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council and Active Norfolk to ensure that we have routes which provide the very best experience for riders and spectators, and we’re very confident that this year’s HSBC UK | National Road Championships will showcase the county and our sport in a fantastic way.”

A host of British cycling greats have previously won the title. Since 2010, Geraint Thomas, Sir Bradley Wiggins (retired), Ian Stannard (Team INEOS), Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data), Peter Kennaugh (Team BORA - hansgrohe) and Steve Cummings (Team Dimension Data) have won the title.
