The WRAS program provides high performance coaching and training opportunities to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation within the sport of cycling.

The WRAS cycling program is endorsed by AusCycling NSW as the first step in the elite athlete pathway.

The program sits between local representative cycling and higher order representation such as NSW state team selection.

The 2025 cycling program will run from October 2024 to June 2025. Athletes will graduate from the program at the 2025 Presentation Night in June.
