YORKSHIRE SPORTIF

Dear Riders As a global top 15 law practice, providing legal advice and solutions to a global client base, the Eversheds Sutherland Leeds office is excited for the eyes of the world to be focused on Yorkshire in September 2019. The world’s best cyclists - along with the sport’s global entourage and each nation’s most avid cycling fans - will descend on Yorkshire for the 2019 UCI Road World Championship. If FIFA did cycling, this would be their World Cup! The event includes over a week of cycling action, during which the best of the best will battle it out for the coveted rainbow stripes. So, we’ve invited our clients and colleagues from across the country to discover why Yorkshire has been chosen to host this prestigous event. We’re pleased you can join us for the inaugural Eversheds Sutherland Yorkshire Sportif. We’ll take in some of the best cycling roads featuring the best landscapes in the Yorkshire Dales. We’ll also tackle some of the featured climbs of the UCI Road World Championships. What’s more, we’ve partnered with the Official UCI Cycling Tour Guides, Struggle Events, to deliver the day. In this Road Book you’ll find the information you need to join us for a day out of the office in God’s Own County. Thanks for joining us and supporting us!
