The Southland Track Cycling Championships will take place from Friday 4 December to Sunday 6 December 2020.
Please note that as this is a 2021 event, riders will be racing in their 2021 age groups. However, 2020 licences are still valid until 31 December 2020, so can be used at this event. Riders taking part in the non-championship Novice events (wheel race, scratch race) do not require a racing licence. However, those taking part in any of the championship events (including U13 Time Trial, Points Race, and Derby) need to hold a full Cycling New Zealand racing licence.
The event is open to riders from other centres holding a valid Cycling New Zealand racing licence, but they may not be eligible for medals.
Southland riders wishing to be eligble to represent Southland at the National Track Championships are required to take part in the Southland Track Championships. Special consideration can be given by the selectors in cases where riders were unable to participate, but this is at the discretion of the selectors.
