CyclingNZ Road and Track Canterbury Centre Track Selection Policy

3 December 2020

This policy exists to set guidelines for selectors and riders in relation to the selection of all Centre representative teams to compete in the National Track Cycling Championships

Selection Committee

Nigel Donnelly (Convenor)

Hamish Ferguson

Terry Gyde

David Lipp

Russell Ownsworth

Key Components of Selection

The following will be considered by the selection committee when selecting representative teams:

  • Rider’s ability to meet qualification time standards
  • Centre Track Championship results
  • Positions available in the team
  • National/ International results

Note: All riders wishing to be selected for the Canterbury Team must compete in the events they wish to be considered for at the NZ Championships. Riders in National Training Programmes, and in Trade Teams will be given dispensation if they live out of Canterbury, or have racing, programme or team commitments the date of Canterbury Championships. Riders prevented from competing due to illness or injury must provide a medical certificate to be considered for selection.

Team Announcement

The Centre team to compete at the National Track Cycling Champs will be named at the conclusion of the Centre Track Championships or as soon as practicable after.

Appeal Process

A rider who has not been selected in the Centre team may lodge a request to the selectors to be reconsidered within 48 hours of the official team being released by the selectors.

The only basis of appeal is on the rider’s ability to be competitive in a national field and must be supported by times/ results at national and international events.

Selection Criteria/ Qualification Times

Listed below are the maximum number of riders the Centre can enter per event, together with Time Qualification standards where appropriate.

Selections for the Scratch and Points Race across the Age Groups are not limited but riders will need to demonstrate at the Centre championships that they are at a level of ability to be competitive at the National Championships. Other contested events eg; Keirin, where there are limited spots available will be selected by rider placing at the Centre Track Championships, with the top riders gaining entry sequentially up to the permitted number of places.

Qualifying times that are recorded outside of the Centre Championships should be posted within the previous six months and signed off by a Cycling New Zealand official, eg; Commissaire

*Junior U17 Events

In the MU17 and WU17 500 time trial, all riders who have ridden under the respective qualifying times, are eligible to be selected for their Centre.

If a Centre has no time qualifiers, a maximum of 4 non-qualifiers may be entered.

If a Centre has two riders who have met the qualifying time, a further two non-qualifiers may be added to make a maximum of 4 riders.

If more than 4 have met the qualifying time, all are eligible for Centre selection but no non-qualifiers can obviously be entered.

This applies for the Junior Time Trial only and does not apply to Masters Events.

The same applies to the Individual Pursuits, with all riders who have met the agreed qualifying times, being eligible for selection.

In the event of only one or two time qualifiers, a further non qualifier can be added to make a maximum of three selections.

Masters Events

In the Master’s events, a maximum of 6 riders per event is permitted

Team Pursuit

A squad of up to six (6) riders per team will generally be selected from those qualified for other events. The final team will be decided/ announced at Track Nationals based off National
