More than 220 of the country’s most promising young cyclists from 44 clubs across Australia are set to contest the 2018 Junior Road National Championships in WA from September 21.
Clubs from all states and both territories will be represented, with Victorian clubs Carnegie-Caulfield and Bendigo & District to make the long trek with the Championships' biggest teams, while local clubs Midland and X-Speed Australia lead the Western Australian contingent. Queensland's Balmoral and Townsville Cycling Clubs round out the top six clubs.
Presented by CycleSport WA on behalf of Cycling Australia, and supported by the City of Bunbury, the 2018 Junior RoadNats will also be the final event in the inaugural Cycling Australia National Junior Road Series.
The Junior RoadNats begins on Friday with the Individual Time Trials in Bunbury before the field takes to the Dardanup road course on Saturday. The three-day Championships culminate on Sunday with the Criterium.
Situated two hours south of Perth, Bunbury will provide competitors and spectators alike a uniquely Western Australian experience and ideal racing conditions. Located on the coast of the Indian Ocean, it will showcase exceptional scenery, with the course designed to capture the stunning coastline for all three event, the individual time trial, criterium and road races.
