The popular Tasmanian Christmas Carnival Series will now form part of the Cycling Australia Rankings Series (STAR). The series was first introduced by Cycling Australia last season but the Tasmania Carnivals were not included, but this summer, the Sports Carnivals Association has been accepted as part of the ranking system for the 2005-2006 series.
The Latrobe, Devonport, Launceston and Burnie Carnivals will carry category 1 ranking points and the Rosebery, Hobart and St Helens Carnivals category 2 ranking points. There will be three categories of events: sprint, endurance and wheelrace.
