Cycling’s performance in benchmark events was in line with expectations in most disciplines, except in para cycling where targets were exceeded. The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will be a highly competitive event for Cycling Australia (CA) providing an opportunity to benchmark performance against quality competition.

CA has made limited progress towards implementing the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. The recent leadership appointments at CA provide increased confidence in the sport’s future administration. Priorities for the coming 12 months include making rapid progress on governance reform by mid-year, further implementation of recommendations from the Wood Review and establishing a stable financial platform for growing the sport.

CA’s focus in participation has been to consolidate its products and create a single entry point for all disciplines, but further work is necessary for this project to progress effectively.
