There was some good news for fans of Australian racing on Tuesday when it was announced that the Road National Championships for all categories will go ahead in 2021, albeit in a new, later calendar slot of February 3-7.

Following the announcements this week that the men's and women's editions of both the Tour Down Under and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race had been cancelled – while it was announced in August that the men's and women's Herald Sun Tour races had also been cancelled – the news of the National Championships taking place at their usual venue in and around Ballarat, Victoria, will be welcomed by Australia's cycling community.
