Vantage Age Group Track National Championships

Following the cancellation of the 2021 Vantage Age Group Track Championships due to Covid-19 back in March, Cycling New Zealand Road & Track (CNZR&T) had been looking for alternative racing opportunities for those impacted riders.
When looking for alternative dates, considerations were given to ensuring a level playing field for all riders across the country to access training facilities to be able to prepare to compete to the national standard and to be able to represent themselves and their centre to their highest level.
CNZR&T are aware that from March each year, access to some outdoor tracks is limited and therefore the window for some of our riders to train to a level to be able to be competitive at a national level is limited.
As facilities become more readily available, any late competition will begin to impact the 2022 Track Season which begins in October/November. As such, CNZR&T have confirmed that the 2021 National Championships will not be rescheduled. We acknowledge and understand that the past year has been highly disruptive (particular for youth and school riders).
CNZR&T would like to extend their thanks to Cycling Southland and the Avantidrome who were able to deliver regional competition opportunities while the country was still in Covid-19 restrictions and look forward to providing national competitions in 2022.
