This is also an event in the Cycling Australia National Para-cycling Series. The National Para-Cycling Series (NPS) is an initiative of Cycling Australia and has the support of local state and club organisers. This event will feature 15 events across 6 states and territories of Australia.
The NPS works on the introduction of Para-cycling to the FedUni Road National Championships schedule. This one has seen para-cycling athletes battle for the green and gold jersey alongside the elite, the under 23 and under the 19 categories for the first time.
In this event, riders will score points in individual time trials which are based on the Multi-Class Formula. This is a configuration of racing which is especially for para-cyclists and allows the athletes from different para-cycling classes to compete in the same field of events.
In this one, the top three scores in each event, as well as the Time Trial National Championships in Ballarat, will count towards a rider's efforts in the series.
Both male and female champions will be awarded an official Santini leader's jersey. They will be recognised at the 2020 FedUni Road National Championships.
In May 2016, Matt Burton got around the 20km course in 25:05 minutes, which amounted to a speed of 47.9km per hour. In 2014, Bella King took out the female course record with a time of 27:43 minutes.
