Cycling

Tasmania has a strong history of success in the sport of cycling. The TIS is currently looking for cyclists to compete on the track and on the road.

Track Cycling

Track cycling events fit into two broad categories: endurance and sprint. At an elite level, riders will typically compete in just one of these categories, however junior riders may compete in both.

The main sprint events are:

  • Sprint
  • Team Sprint
  • Time Trial
  • Keirin

The main endurance events are:

  • Individual Pursuit
  • Team Pursuit
  • Scratch Race
  • Points Race
  • Elimination
  • Madison
  • Omnium

Road Cycling

Road cycling events fit into two broad categories: mass start events, where riders start simultaneously (road race, criterium); and time trials, where individual riders and teams race a course alone against the clock.

The main road cycling events are:

  • Time Trial
  • Road Race
  • Criterium

Road cycling races may occur as separate events or as part of a stage race or “tour”, which consist of several mass start or time trial stages ridden over consecutive days.

If you are interested in trying track or road cycling for the first time or are interested in joining a club please contact shellie.wakefield@cycling.org.au

Cycling Tasmania is teaming up with the TIS Dulux Racing Team to present the Novice School Cycling Championships. This novice cycling event will be held Friday 9 November at Symmons Plains Raceway and is an opportunity for schools to encourage their students to try a sport that they may not have participated in before. The TIS Dulux Racing Team riders will be there to share their knowledge and help with some skills sessions in preparation for the renowned Wattbike Challenge.
