Cycling Australia’s high performance program is rated on track for both Olympic and Paralympic disciplines. Results at the 2015 World Track Championships were particularly encouraging with Australia on top of the overall medal tally with 11 medals (four gold, four silver and three bronze). Six of these medals were in Olympic events. For the second year in a row, Australia secured a silver medal in the World Championships Men’s Road Race.

The BMX program continued its history of success at world championships securing a silver medal in extremely challenging conditions. The para-cycling squad also had some encouraging performances in both road and track disciplines securing five gold medals in Olympic discipline events.

Cycling Australia’s high performance unit continues to operate an effective track program out of Adelaide. Adelaide Superdrome renovations have enhanced interaction among coaching and performance support staff, and improved training facilities for athletes. Coaching and performance staff are continually seeking performance gains through innovative programs and research projects that can help deliver future success.

The large scope of the sport, Cycling Australia’s own financial challenges and a reliance on commercial sponsorships are being effectively managed but remain risk factors for the high performance program beyond 2016.


Cycling Australia is progressing with its governance reform and has been working to make the necessary changes in line with the MSGP. The organisation has established a new nominations committee which uses an appropriate skills matrix to identify board needs. This has led to two new appointed directors joining the Cycling Australia board. The sport plans to roll out its strategic plan through 2016.
