Napier 8-10 January 2016


The Elite National Championships is New Zealand’s premier national road cycling event, attracting New Zealand’s top professional and amateur road cyclists.

The event includes three days of intense racing including time trials and road races for Elite & U23 grades, men & women. The highly anticipated Elite Men's Race is on the final day which culminates in a spectacular finish, which is supported by large crowds of spectators over Napier Hill and finishes on the beach front of Napier’s famous Marine Parade.

The event continues to establish itself as the highlight of the New Zealand road cycling calendar for riders and fans. Each year the event continues to develop into not only a cycling race but a festival of events.
