As every Association starts their new season - please be aware of the change in Age divisions for Timed Events - the classes for both Men and Women 20-38 and 39 & Over have changed beginning 2020-2021 Season to 20-42 and 43 & Over.
The question has come up - "do I have to go back if I am already in the original 39 & Over?" The answer - YES you do if you are not 43 or Over you must go back to the 20-42.
Let me help you understand
Federation rules state the class you are eligible to participate in is based on your age as of January 1, the year following state show (January 1, 2021) If you failed to ride in your correct class, you will not be eligible to participate at state as your President cannot verify you follow the rules. Also, say you didn't ride in your correct class, slipped in at state and had a smoking run- win 1st but you are only 41 in the 43 and over. So the winner of 2nd is 43 and protest - you just lost !
Let's all do this correctly.
