Cycling New Zealand Schools are excited to announce the 2022 Schools Cycling calendar in partnership with SKODA New Zealand.
2022 will offer 12 exciting Schools Cycling events for a full calendar of schools racing across Road, Track, Mountain Bike and Cyclo-cross
First up, the schools mountain bike events will continue to support the growth in this popular code with the SKODA South Island MTB Championships heading to Queenstown, from 29 – 31 March hosted by Coronet Peak with support from Queenstown MTB Club. During the same week, the SKODA North Island MTB Championship event will be in Rotorua, from 1 – 3 April hosted by Rotorua MTB Club. Later in the year, the SKODA National MTB Championships are heading south to Bluff, from 13 – 16 October hosted by the Southland MTB Club.
The SKODA North Island Road Championships will be held on 9 – 10 July in Cambridge and the SKODA South Island Roads is also on the same weekend in Christchurch, hosted by Canterbury Schools Cycling. The SKODA National Road Championships return to the Manawatu from 1 – 3 October.
SKODA North Island Track Championships will be in Cambridge from 11 – 12 July hosted by Cycling New Zealand, while the SKODA National Track Championships will be combined with SKODA South Island Track Championship event in Invercargill from 11 – 12 October hosted by Cycling Southland.
2022 will once again see two Cyclo Cross events on our schools calendar, after a successful launch of these events in 2021. The provisional date for the SKODA North Island and SKODA South Island Championship events is Sunday 23 July, with locations and host clubs to be announced shortly.
Then the SKODA Southern Tour will be on 27 – 28 August hosted by Cycling Marlborough, with the SKODA Northern Tour on 3 – 4 September hosted by Cycling New Zealand. Covid-19 has unfortunately impacted both of these tours in the past two years, so we really look forward to having these events in 2022.
We extend our thanks to SKODA New Zealand, all our host clubs and organisers and their volunteers who continue to support Schools Cycling to make all of these events possible.
