Western Australia’s capital city Perth will be home to the Australian National Championships for the next three years.
The news broke just after noon on Monday with AusCycling issuing a statement that reads –
‘Following an exhaustive search for a venue that would both excite fans and challenge some of the world’s best riders, AusCycling has chosen to partner with the WA Government, through Tourism WA and the City of Perth to take the Championships to the City of Light between 2025–2027.
While the event will include multiple competitions across juniors, para-cycling, mass-participation and elite, the highlight will be the arrival of high-octane racing in the iconic Kings Park.
“We are thrilled to present some of the best athletes in the world to some of the best sports fans in the world in the heart of Perth,” AusCycling CEO Marne Fechner said.
“Running the road races through such an iconic location is a privilege and a perfect way to showcase this beautiful city to the rest of Australia and a huge international broadcast audience.
“We thank Tourism WA, the City of Perth and the WA Government for making this new chapter possible.”
