Oceania Road Championships (5 April)  - Postponed

https://oceaniacycling.org/postponement-of-2020-oceania-road-championships-and-2020-oceania-bmx-championships/

  • The late change of date for the 2020 Oceania Road Championships now has the dates clashing with the Te Awamutu Junior Tour. While we are looking to raise the standard of our domestic age group competitions, we strongly suggest that you support the domestic events and in this case the Te Awamutu Tour. For those of you who have made plans to attend or are looking to attend, Oceania Championships as a U19 event for road and time trial will be considered, alongside other domestic events in making selections for key 2020 campaigns. However, Cycling New Zealand will no longer be able to send U19 National Teams. Please feel free to enter as an independent rider if you would still like to attend for your own development:

Cycling New Zealand is planning two road development campaigns. Current plans are for a May 2020 for Women Development Road project in Europe (Belgium, Switzerland and Germany) and possibly July-August 2020 for Men Development Road project (exact location and dates TBC).

These are projects self-funded by the riders, organised by volunteer managers (appointed by CNZ) and supported by CNZ (selection support, administration and planning support domestically, logistical support in Europe).
