Virtual Track National Challenge
|De Track National Challenge is een innovatieve baancompetitie op nationaal niveau die door heel Australië zal plaatsvinden in het weekend (3 en 4 oktober) dat oorspronkelijk gepland was voor de Cycling Australia 2020 Track National Championships in Brisbane.|
|Cycling Australia is excited to announce the launch of the ‘Virtual Track National Challenge’, an initiative which will see riders across Australia battle against each other in a series of challenges.
To be contested over the first two weekends of October, the inaugural Challenge will see riders contest timed track events at their primary Indoor Velodrome in their home state or territory. Challenges will be open amon other things J19 and Elite categories. Races will be held in the flying 200 meter – individual pursuit, time trial – team sprint and team pursuit, with times recorded at each velodrome across Australia to be standardised using an approach developed by the Australian Cycling Team.
The event will also provide a key preparation opportunity for teams and riders as they build towards the 2020 Track National Championships in Brisbane from 16-20 December.
“In these uncertain times, we are pleased to be able to offer an innovative way for riders to target an event where they can measure themselves against the best in the country.”
