The circuit will likely be brutal, the roads tiny and the weather will be atrocious, sounds like a recipe for a great race!
Would be a recipe for a great race with olympic size teams... give the best nations 9 riders and say France helped by Australia for Matthews will control the race for their 27 year old Alaphilippe to take the prize....

The weather is usually pretty decent in September

I remember some TOB stages in atrocious conditions, the one which went over Honister Pass particularly springs to mind.
 
Yorkshire WC sounds like a good idea. Potential for some really good classic style parcours and what we have seen from the TdF start also with some amazing local support.

Nothing like we will see this year.

A Yorkshire WC would be great, but why try it in the same year as Colombia. i want both :)

Pretty sure Bogota bid for this year's worlds. I'm just going to go and cry a little now.
 
That would probably be the case; is it necessary for it to be a circuit? For Yorkshire I reckon it would work better without a circuit, but I am not sure if this is possible, both logistically and according to the rules
 
2018 will probably have a brutal route for climbers. (They want 5000 meters of altitude gain). Therefore I'd rather have a hilly route like Yorkshire for the worlds 2019 and then maybe Colombia in 2020, which would probably also be for climbers...or they make it pan flat so the dominant sprinter of 2020, Fernando Gaviria can win :D ;)

Be a LBL esque circuit in yorkshire most likely.
