Rider Support Grants

Inside Line is committed to supporting its members who are rising through the ranks and recognising riders who are achieving high levels of success in key events. We have got two programs designed to supply financial support to our promising and high achieving members.

Junior Travel Grant

The Junior Travel Grant is a $500 financial subsidy that eligible riders can apply to selected AusCycling Programs. Eligible riders must:

  • Be a financial member of Inside Line upon application and for the duration of the selected program
  • Have been actively competing at Inside Line events in the previous 12 months
  • Be competing in the U17 or U19 categories
  • Meet minimum performance standards
  • Wear provided clothing, unaltered, during travel days and on-course during all official sessions

Minimum Performance Standard

To be eligible for the Junior Travel Grant, riders must have recorded a result within 120% of the Elite winning time at an Inside Line state level event. For instance, if the Elite winners time for a particular race was 2:05.00, riders with a time under 2:46.38 would be considered eligible. Results must have been recorded within the 12 months prior to the selected program.

Apparel

Successful applicants may be required to wear casual club apparel on travel days and/or club race attire during all official riding sessions at the selected program. The apparel will be provided, free of charge and may not be altered in any way without the express consent of the Inside Line committee. Exemptions may be granted upon request to the committee. Riders found to be in violation of these terms may have their eligibility revoked.

Further Information

The grant will be provided in the form of a reimbursement upon completion of the program. The Inside Line committee reserves the right to award, adapt and revoke any grants, successful or unsuccessful.
