Welcome to NTS (National Track Series).

Open to U17 through to U23 male and female riders, the three-round series has been developed by Cycling New Zealand to provide a series of track racing opportunities for developing riders in a competitive and supported environment.

The objectives of the series include offering riders the opportunity to develop increased tactical and technical awareness (and bunch skills for Endurance riders) and to provide riders with relevant and practicable educational, coaching and tactical/technical workshops.
 
The series is also designed to provide a platform for coaches to share experience and knowledge and provide opportunities to grow understanding on the skills specific to guiding, coaching and supporting their young riders.

Each round will also host a number of workshops to support the objectives of the series including tactics, race analysis, coaching clinics, application and intent of rules. 

Events will be held over in both the North and South Island.

Round 1: 2 - 4 June 2023, Invercargill

Round 2: 7 - 9 July 2023, Cambridge 

Round 3: 15 - 17 September 2023, Cambridge

 

This series is proudly supported by Celebration Box, Gift Boxes, Flowers & Sweet Treats, delivered nationwide. Celebration Box Living the Values Awards will be presented at each event - read more here.
