News – World Masters Games 2017

With a total number of 25,000 athletes expected to compete, World Masters Games is the world’s largest multi-sport competition for masters-aged athletes.

The World Masters Games 2017 Cycling programme is being delivered in conjunction with Cycling New Zealand. Cycling has five disciplines on the competition schedule, and a minimum age category of 30-34 for both men and women.

Track Cycling will be located at the Avantidrome in Cambridge because of the quality of the facilities on offer. Woodhill Forest will be a notable highlight for Mountain Biking, as will Auckland’s waterfront which has been selected for the Cycling Time Trial. Whilst the Wynyard Quarter will host the Cycling Criterium and the Road Race will take place on Clevedon Roads in South Auckland.


Reflecting on the sheer size and scale of the international event, World Masters Games 2017 Organising Committee Chief Executive Jennah Wootten says: “Our goal is to deliver on every level a superior Games, for the thousands of competitors who will travel internationally to compete, and for the good of our reputation as a host nation.

“We hope people will get behind the Games effort, and start registering their interest – either as participants, officials or perhaps volunteers. We’ll be welcoming athletes from 100 countries to our country for the World Masters Games. We know New Zealanders will welcome these visitors in true kiwi style, and no doubt put up some stiff competition to keep the Games interesting.”
