Perth to Host AusCycling Road National Championships in 2025

Perth has been chosen as the new host city for the prestigious AusCycling road national championships, set to take place in January 2025. This marks the first time in 17 years that the event will be held outside of Victoria.

Exciting Road Cycling Event Coming to Perth

The AusCycling road national championships is the largest participation road cycling event in Australia and is expected to attract around 20,000 visitors to Western Australia over three years. The event will span five days and feature 54 events, including races at Kings Park.

What to Expect at the Championships

The championships will consist of three sub-events: a road race with various categories, time trials, and a criterium that involves multiple laps around a closed circuit. Additionally, there will be a mass-participation event where members of the public can ride on the same course as elite riders.

Boosting Tourism and Economy

The event is estimated to cost $2.1 million to run and has received funding support from the City of Perth. Acting Tourism Minister John Carey believes that hosting this prestigious event will bring numerous benefits to Western Australia. He stated, “This prestigious event will bring thousands of elite cyclists to Perth, boosting our local economy through tens of millions of dollars injected into our tourism and hospitality businesses in Perth, and building WA’s reputation as a host of world-class sporting events.”

Showcasing Perth to the World

City of Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas expressed excitement about the opportunity to showcase Perth to the world. He said, “The championships will attract thousands of people to our beautiful city in January 2025 and we can’t wait to put on a memorable show for our international and local visitors.”

A New Chapter for Perth

The event is being brought to Perth in partnership with Tourism WA and the City of Perth. AusCycling chief executive Marne Fechner expressed gratitude towards these organizations, stating, “Running the road races through such an iconic location is a privilege and a perfect way to showcase this beautiful city to the rest of Australia and a huge international broadcast audience. We thank Tourism WA, the City of Perth, and the WA government for making this new chapter possible.”
