The Masters Track National Championships (formerly named the Age Group Track National Championships) is New Zealand's premier national track cycling event for masters riders. Held annually in rotation between Cambridge and Invercargill. The 2022 event will be held at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome in Invercargill from 3 - 5 March.

From 2022, U15 and U17 riders will now be competing at the Track National Championships alongside the U19's, Elites and Para Cyclists. The separation of the Masters event provides the opportunity to include an individual sprint competition which has been advocated for a number of years since its demonstrated popularity at the World Masters Games in 2017.

 

Cycling New Zealand are committed to providing the safest environment for all our cycling community who participate, support and engage with our sport at a national championship level. To enable the best chance for the events to go ahead, Cycling New Zealand will be operating all the 2022 National Championship events as “My Vaccine Pass” events.
