The Men's road race of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships was a cycling event that took place on 29 September 2019 in Yorkshire, England.[2] The race was initially scheduled to be contested over 280 kilometres (170 miles),[3] but due to flooding on the course,[4] the race was reduced to 260.7 kilometres (162.0 miles).[1] The wet weather also meant there was a limited broadcast coverage of the race.

For the first time in the race's history, a Danish rider won the world title as Mads Pedersen out-sprinted two other riders at the finish in Harrogate to take the rainbow jersey.[5] The silver medal went to Italy's Matteo Trentin, while the bronze medal went to Stefan Küng of Switzerland.[6]
