The Elite Cycling Series is back to its full glory with a roster of six rounds across the South Island and is the only team based racing series in New Zealand.

It gives riders the chance to experience riding with support vehicles and a race convoy in a professionally run series. Top domestic riders competing with their teams also attracts good media coverage that helps the profile of the sport and aids sponsorship support.

The series caters for riders keen on pursuing a full time career through to good well performed masters and age group riders who get to compete against the country’s top domestic based cyclists.

In 2014 the series will cater for the following:
  • Open / Senior Men & U23 Men
  • Women U19 & Senior Women & Womens Masters 35 +
  • Masters 35-44 & Masters 45-49 & Masters 50 +
Note: It is intended that the Masters race will have prize money for all 3 age categories as above, this will be calculated on a prorata basis of entrant numbers in each grade.  It is intended that there will be jerseys for all categoryies also but note All Masters start together in a single field. Your teams can be made up of any age groups. Points will be allocated on the first 10 riders in each grade across the finish line.
