2021 AusCycling CX National Series

The 2021 AusCycling CX National Series is a competition which includes a number of key cyclo-cross events which occur throughout the year.  The Series is designed to encourage participation and recognise individual rider achievement.

The results from a riders best 5 results from Series events will be added together to determine an individual’s series points and the overall ranking. 

In 2021, the Series consists of seven (7) rounds and the National Championships.

National Championships 

UPDATE: National Series - Round 5 & 6

Due to COVID travel restrictions, the previously scheduled National Series Rd 5 &6 - Creswick on 3-4 July will proceed as a Victorian CX State Series Round. Riders who have already entered will be automatically re-graded into Victorian CX categories. This will of course, not suit everyone and we remind riders that they can scratch at any time through EntryBoss and receive an immediate refund.

 AusCycling is looking to schedule National Series Rounds 5 & 6 rounds for a later date and will advise as soon as possible.
