AusCycling is excited to confirm the dates and locations for all 2023 AusCycling National Championship events, with four different states and one territory hosting events in BMX, mountain bike, cyclo-cross, gravel, road, track, para-cycling and trials.

Thredbo Mountain Bike Park, in the heart of Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales’ Snowy Mountains, returns to host AusCycling’s Mountain Bike National Championships for the first time since 2002.

Cross-country, downhill, trials and pump track national titles will be fought out at the world-class summer and winter alpine resort from February 9-18 and will run in conjunction with the iconic Cannonball MTB Festival.

The rapidly growing Gravity Enduro National Championships will be split over two weekends to accommodate larger fields in 2023, with junior categories first to hit Victoria’s Red Hill from October 7-8, followed by elite, U21 and masters categories from October 14-15.

National titles for BMX Freestyle will be decided from March 24-25 at the Gold Coast Sports Precinct.

Shepparton will play host to the BMX Racing Championships from October 31-November 5 as AusCycling’s curtain closer to the 2023 National Championships calendar.

The 2023 AusCycling Elite, J19 and Para Track National Championships return as a standalone event and will run from March 15-19. The 2023 Junior (J17/15) Track National Championships will take place from April 11-14, and the 2023 Masters Track National Championships from April 13-16.

The Sharp EIT Junior Track Series will integrate two National Championships (Madison: Melbourne, Omnium: Adelaide) for J17 riders.
