About the project

The Australian Cycling Academy (ACA) is a cycling development program and UCI Continental Professional team - Pro Racing Sunshine Coast (PRSC) founded by former professional cyclists Ben Kersten and Matt Wilson.

Our ethos is 'creating a better future for Australian cyclists, on and off the bike'. With the ACA athletes have the unique opportunity to live, learn and ride. This creates better outcomes for our athletes, and a brighter future for our sport.

Integrating high-performance, tertiary study and professional mentoring, from a single hub at the University of the Sunshine Coast; this is a new generation for Australian cycling.

From our Sunshine Coast base, the ACA also supports local industry and tourism, operating fullservice training camps, online coaching, a school education initiative and a mentoring and scholarship program.

ACA is supported and endorsed by Cycling Australia and the State Sport Institutes to work with the best available talent in Australia
