Following the opening round in Melbourne the four-city competition that prepares Australia's future stars visits Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide from October through to mid January.

Strong fields will line up in each of the four age categories with nearly 200 riders entered across each state and territory.

In Melbourne 28 riders in the under 15 women's and 39 in the under 17 women's categories shows continued growth in women's cycling. While with over 80 riders in the under 17 men's and nearly 50 in the under 15 the racing is bound to be highly competitive.

After emerging on top in the under 15 categories last year Max Leiner (Carnegie Caulfield Blue) and Olivia Saunders (St George) step up to the under 17 level in 2017.

Last year's team champions Carnegie Caulfield Blue return looking to defend their title, though runners up Brunswick Orange will be eyeing the top step.

Following Melbourne the series heads to Sydney and the Dunc Gray Velodrome, which hosted the 2000 Olympic Games in November. For the second year in a row the Anna Meares Velodrome will host round three in December ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Adelaide rounds out the series in January with the final two days of racing held just prior to the Santos Tour Down Under.
