The Track National Championships (formerly named the Elite & U19 Track National Championships) is New Zealand's premier national track cycling event. Held annually in rotation between Cambridge and Invercargill. The 2022 event will be held at the Grassroots Trust Velodrome in Cambridge from 15 - 19 March.
