Riding Up

Riders should nominate in their age and gender class. Rider’s may ride up into another age class or gender as per ACTRB 2.01. Riding up or in another gender in an event will be counted as qualification in a round, however points will not be counted towards the NT Series or National Cup Series. Under subscribed classes will be merged with an older class, however, classes with an age of more than 34 years shall be combined with the next younger class. Merged classes will be scored as per their merged class. E.g 12 year boys merged with 13 year boys will be scored in the merged class, not their nominated class of 12 boys.
