The following is an update to members on the current status of the AusCycling proposal.

As of today, MTBA remains the only discipline to have completed formal voting and endorse the
establishment of AusCycling.

BMX NSW will be conducting a formal Special General Meeting to vote on AusCycling on the 13th February 2020.

Following the State votes, the National Sporting Organisations (NSO’s) of BMX Australia and
Cycling Australia have scheduled formal Special General Meetings to vote for the adoption
of the AusCycling proposal on 17th February 2020 and 27th March 2020, respectively.

At this time, 11 (10 state and 1 national) of 14 organisations have voted on the proposal, and
formally approved the AusCycling model, with three State Sporting Organisations (SSO’s) choosing
not yet to hold formal Special General Meetings to vote on AusCycling.

In the interim, whilst BMX NSW, BMXA and CA are conducting formal voting, Sport Australia has
extended NSO recognition for all three NSO’s (BMXA, CA and MTBA) until 31st March 2020.

Noting that AusCycling can be formed by two of the three disciplines endorsing the proposal and Sport
Australia continues to advise they will only recognise one NSO for cycling in the future.

The MTBA team is working with all parties to support and endorse the AusCycling proposal and as
we await further results from formal voting, we will continue to operate business as usual and are
focused on servicing our members.

As more information develops, further updates will follow.
