Which State should I enter?

What if the velodrome isn’t open or I am not allowed to travel to it?

CA will work with each state should any travel or venue restrictions be in place.  In this case a flexible date arrangement may be made with the affected state. Your host state will confirm directly with you closer to the date.

How are the times standardised?

The Australian Cycling Team has evaluated each of the velodromes based on past performances and the calculation will take into account the barometric pressure and temperatures in each velodrome.

We acknowledge that these are unlikely to be perfectly aligned in each instance however it does provide a great opportunity for riders to race each other within the current environment.

How will results be published?

We will be using a live timing app that will centralise the results as they happen throughout the country.

How can I enter the team events?

The team events will be determined by the individual state.  Further information will come from your individual state on this.

Why are there different costs with each state?

Each state has set their costs to cover the cost of using the venue or Commissaires on the day.  All fees are returned to the individual state.
