Every year, Cycling NSW selects Under-15, Under-17 and Under-19 state teams to represent NSW in national and international competition.
These representative riders travel and compete together as one team, proudly wearing the sky blue colours and waratah crest.
We send state teams to the following National Championships:
New South Wales has a rich heritage of being one of (if not the) top-performing states in national competition. Our junior athletes are constantly on national podiums and winning Australian champions’ jerseys. Due to the high quality of junior racers in our state, representing NSW is a coveted goal and tremendous honour for any young cyclist.
From 2019, Cycling NSW began sending Under-17 and Under-19 riders to international competition under the banner of the Rauland NSW Development Team. These ad-hoc teams are selected as and when racing opportunities arise. So far, the Rauland NSW Development Team has competed in South Korea, New Zealand and Victoria.
