For all the new arrivals to big bikes for this year, do remember that: The following criteria are to be used when determining a rider’s eligibility for the C class: 1. *No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider had a RPV of 15 or higher the previous year in the C class or a 12-16 youth division. (*Ahem* Supermini *cough*) 2. No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider has ever been classified as an A or Expert rider. 3. No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider has qualified for the AMA Amateur Motocross Nationals in any previous year in any class. 4. No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider is receiving or has ever received any type of OEM factory support in any class. 5. If a rider does not have enough points paying finishes to calculate their RPV points or does not meet any of the above criteria, they may not participate in the C class if they have raced the C, Beginner or any Youth class above 12- years old prior to June 1, 2007. (AMA Rulebook, pg. 25). Every year I announce and see so many familiar names that were once of Supermini listing in the 250C, 450C classes...C class is not for you, it's for true novices. Those who engage in this activity are cheating themselves, you will become a better rider in a better and more stable "B" class. Best of luck in the 2011 Racing season!
