UCI Road World Championships 2019
In September 2019, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) held their annual Road Cycling World Championships in Yorkshire with Ripon being chosen as a major hub for the event.
As a result, four races passed through the city in as many days with the Women's Elite Time Trial starting from the market square on a very wet Tuesday afternoon.
Unfortunately for all of the riders & spectators (me included), the weather decided to drop an unprecedented period of torrential rain on the event resulting in very soggy riders and drenched spectators.
Despite being almost constantly soaked to the skin, the event was a success and provided me with the opportunity to capture a once in a lifetime event on my doorstep.
The images in this portfolio are a sample selection of those taken that week.
