Cycling fans will have the opportunity to watch several world championship medallists competing in an all-important Oceania Track Championships in Cambridge next year.

Australian and New Zealand cyclists and Para-cyclists, who earned over 20 medals at the recent UCI World Championships in Glasgow, will be in line for selection for Oceania Championships as preparation towards next year’s Paris Olympics.

Cycling New Zealand announced today that the championships will return to Cambridge for the first time in seven years, staged at the Grassroots Trust Velodrome from 14-18 February, 2024.

This is part of a two-week international focus on major cycling events in the region, with the UCI BMX World Cup set for Rotorua on 8-10 February.

“We are excited to host the Oceania Track Championships back in Cambridge give fans the opportunity to watch world-class action from world-class riders here at the Grassroots Trust Velodrome,” said Cycling New Zealand Events Director, Chris Christensen.

“Of course there is also that rivalry when Australia and New Zealand athletes compete, both in able-bodied and Para-cycling action, which adds to the excitement.”

As well as Oceania titles, the championship offers all-important qualifying spots for the UCI World Championships, and ultimately Olympic qualification.

It will also be a shakedown for riders ahead of the Olympics, with the event just over five months from the Paris Games.
