Five different states are set to host national championships events in 2022, with the UCI Road World Championships, the centrepiece event for the year, set for Wollongong from 18 - 25 September.

Tasmania will host its first BMX National Championships since 2002, also the first time in over 25 years that the national championships will take place in Launceston.  

The Track National Championships will see the Junior (15, 17, 19), Elite and Para Championships combined into an integrated event as the Championships head back to Brisbane.
