For those of you new to BMX racing, we race in 2 classes, Novice and Expert. If you've not raced before, you'll go into the novice class for the first year of racing.
Riders race in the age category that they will be at the end of the year. For example, if you are currently 10yrs old, but will turn 11 in 2022, you will race in the 11yrs age category.
The entry form will ask you for your plate number. If you've ridden before, you'll probably already have a race plate. If not, don't worry. You can buy a race plate on race day for £5, and you'll get given a number for that race. This plate and number will do you for the whole series, so just enter your new number on the form below for future races.
