2019 race calendar

The 2019 programme for domestic teams

This is an overview of the key races in 2019 for British Continental teams.* The calendar will be updated as race calendars and team programmes are finalised [last update: 21 January 2019].

Race programmes for British Continental teams typically include a mix of UCI-classified races (British and international) and top-tier British Cycling-classified races (click here for a race classification explainer).

*WorldTour races are not included as Continental teams are excluded from participating in them.

Domestic calendar

Domestic races that all of the British Continental teams will race (or want to race*). Races below National A category not included.

*The Tour de Yorkshire and Tour of Britain are invitation-only and in recent years have given invitations to some but not all British Continental teams, plus a Great Britain national squad.
