Cycling Australia’s clubs will have their chance to battle for the coveted green & gold national champion’s jersey at the 2019 Club Team Time Trial and Criterium National Championships in Ballarat.
To be held as part of the 2019 FedUni RoadNats, the Club Championships will offer teams of three or four club racers the opportunity to race on the famous courses just hours before Australia's elite.
The Club Team Criterium will be one of the first national championships awarded in the new year, with the clubs to take over the Ballarat CBD criterium course on the afternoon of Friday 4 January.
On Tuesday 8 January, the FedUni RoadNats Championships will sign off for 2019 with the afternoon Club Team Time Trial on the challenging Buninyong course.
In 2018, 20 teams representing 15 Australian clubs took part in the inaugural Championships, with each category won by a different club.
The Club Team Championships provide the perfect long weekend away of racing, riding and watching at the 2019 FedUni RoadNats Championships. Teams will be able to catch all the spectacular action of the elite and para-cycling races, take on the club teams, ride the MS Gran Fondo, while also enjoying the hospitality and amenities that the famous Ballarat region has to offer.
Cycling Australia CEO Steve Drake and Chair Duncan Murray are both confirmed starters for the Club Championships.
“The Club Championships provides a great chance for our members to challenge and immerse themselves during the FedUni RoadNats week,” said Drake. “I will also be riding the MS National Fondo on Saturday, so I look forward to a great weekend of riding, racing and watching.”
The FedUni Road National Championships will run 4-8 January 2019 in Ballarat and Buninyong. Australia’s best under 19, under 23, elite, para and club cyclists, will battle for the coveted green and gold national champions jerseys in the criterium, road race and time trial.
A host of participation and community events will also feature at the 2019 FedUni RoadNats, highlighted by the MS National Fondo.
