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.

Entries for the Masters Track National Championships are accepted through Cycling New Zealand Road and Track Centres only. Please contact your centre to apply for entry. The Centre is responsible for conducting an appropriate Selection process for all events to ensure that only riders who are competitive at this level are entered in the National Championships.
