Vantage Age Group Track National Championships

After the unfortunate cancellation of the Vantage Age Group Track National Championships, Cycling New Zealand, the Avantidrome and Cycling Southland are collaborating on planning South Island and North Island carnivals. This initiative acknowledges that riders have trained to race and are naturally incredibly disappointed they won’t have this opportunity as planned next week. With support from both Cycling Southland and the Avantidrome, this gives riders the opportunity to race ‘locally’ and the best chance of being able to race in the still uncertain Covid-19 levels in venues that supports easier travel and logistics with the ability to manage numbers.
ILT Stadium Southland will be hosting the South Island Age Group Track Carnival from Thursday 11th – Saturday 13th March for all Age Group riders from the South Island, and the Avantidrome in Cambridge will be hosting the North Island Age Group Track Carnival across the same dates for all Age Group riders from the North Island. These events are being run by the Avantidrome and Cycling Southland with support from Cycling New Zealand.
Both venues will be considering their responsibilities under the different Covid-19 Alert Levels and restrictions on numbers may apply. To assist with providing the most riders with these opportunities to support both organisers, if you are interested in participating then you must register your interest in the island of your residence.
Due to the likely restrictions on participating numbers, only U15/U17 and Masters will be permitted.
More details from the respective venues will follow in the coming days around entry and costs.
