From 22nd to 29th September 2019, the best cyclists in the world will flock to Yorkshire for eight days of speed, stamina and suspense. It’s set to be an incredible event and you can watch it from the sidelines as the cyclists zip past on their way to finish, but wouldn’t you rather get closer to the action?

As the official fundraising partner of the UCI Road World Championships, Leeds Cares is giving one lucky winner the chance to see the event from the back seat of the official race car. You’ll follow the riders on a lap of the championship course, giving you a unique perspective on the race that money simply can’t buy – and you can bring two friends!

This incredible prize will put you right at the heart of the action at the Men’s U23 race on Friday 27th September 2019. After 90 kilometres of flat terrain, they’ll take on a testing finale across the hills and dales of Yorkshire, culminating in three laps of the tough and technical Harrogate circuit – which is where you’ll join them. Ahead of your ride, you can enjoy the lively atmosphere at the Harrogate Fanzone, but ultimately, you’ll have the best seats in the house as you whizz past crowds and landmarks on a circuit of the course itself.

As a lasting reminder of your day, you’ll also get an official Leeds Cares Santini shirt with Lizzie Deignan’s signature.
