A class is made up of 3 or more riders. When there isn’t a sufficient number of riders to complete a class, one or more classes will be combined.

Class Combinations

In cases where one or more classes are combined due to low number of registered riders, points are allocated to each rider based on how they would place in their regular class. However, the “Award of the day” will be awarded based on the outcome of the combined class onthat particular day, not based on how the rider would have placed in their regular class.

For Example: Two Novice riders are grouped together with three Expert riders. The points will be awarded to first and second place for the Novice riders in their class, and to first, second and third place to the Expert riders in their class. The award of the day will be given based on the order of finish for that day.

The results from any main or semi-main can only be appealed within 15 minutes of the main or semi-main being run. Once the Chief Commissaire has declared the results of any BMX event as final, no changes to those results will be made. It is the responsibility of participants or their parent/guardian to examine posted race results for accuracy.

Series Points

Protests or appeals concerning series points will be accepted until seven days prior to the series final. If an error has been made in the tabulation of points, it will be corrected. No changes to series points will be made for appeals concerning the results of individual races.
