ENTRY LIST

Click here to view the current entry list - at 20 February.

Please email events@cnz.kiwi if you need to make any changes and team managers will need to confirm entries and make changes at confirmation of starters.

 

Individuals will be able to complete their entry through Event Plus. Clubs will each be given a unique entry code which riders will require to allow them to enter the event. The Club will only share the unique code for entry if that rider meets the entry criteria below, and in sharing the code gives their authority for that rider to submit their entry.

 

ENTRY INFORMATION

Riders are representing their Club at these National Championships. Although riders can enter directly online, they won't have access to the entries without the unique code from their club to submit their entry.

The Club is responsible for conducting a suitable selection process to ensure that only riders who are competitive at this level are entered in the National Championships.

For timed events, there are Qualifying times that a rider must be able to achieve. The table below specifies the qualifying times, and when clubs can enter riders who are outside the qualifying time.

For other events, it is a requirement that the riders be “of a National Standard”

POOL SYSTEM

A Pool system will operate for those riders who are unable to represent their Club in the team events (e.g. due to insufficient numbers or where club numbers are greater than the Entry Limit per club) Composite teams will be made up by the Commissaire’s Panel (or their delegated authority) from entries submitted by Club Team Managers, in order to create evenly matched teams.
