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 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.
