Mountain Bike Australia can announce the special resolution to establish AusCycling was overwhelmingly approved today at its 2019 Annual General Meeting on the Gold Coast with 89% of votes cast in favour of the proposal.
The result sees MTBA become the first National Sporting Organisation (NSO) and cycling discipline to formally endorse the formation of AusCycling.
MTBA would like to thank members who took the time to inform themselves about AusCycling, cast their vote and have their say on this historic decision for the future of MTBA and cycling in Australia.
This outcome also reinforces MTBA’s commitment not just to the proposal, but to position the sport to seek the best opportunities, benefits and outcomes under the new proposed AusCycling model.
MTBA CEO Shane Coppin reinforced the organisation’s undertaking for a unified governance structure.
“MTBA remains committed to AusCycling and is confident that AusCycling will be formed with formal voting by Cycling NSW, BMX NT and Cycling Tasmania yet to be conducted, while Cycling Australia and BMX Australia will conduct their General Meetings to vote on AusCycling in mid-December.
”MTBA looks forward to working with those organisations who are also supportive of AusCycling, to introduce the proposed model and deliver improved benefits for all riders and members.”
A good representation of MTBA members from all states and territories participated in the voting process and believed there was a need for positive change for cycling in Australia.
The support for MTBA to form part of the AusCycling model is a strong show of confidence in the development and continued growth of mountain biking in the future.
This result paves the way for enhanced recognition and support for our sport for the benefit of all mountain bikers nationwide.
The MTBA outcome now makes the number of organisations who have formally voted and confirmed their approval to establish AusCycling to ten from the twelve formal SGM/EGM votes that have now been held to date
The names of the three mountain bike representatives to sit on the board of AusCycling will be released early next week.
Below is the breakdown of the percentage of votes from states and territories:
