The Virtual Track National Challenge was an innovative event, which saw riders from across Australia battle each other in a series of challenges taking place in each state.
Challenges were open to Para-cyclists, J15, J17, J19, and Elite categories. Race events were held in the Flying 200M, Individual Pursuit, Time Trial, Team Sprint and Team Pursuit, with times recorded at each velodrome across Australia and was then standardised using an approach developed by the Australian Cycling Team.
Tasmania was the final state to compete in this event and we saw some outstanding performances from our members.
