AMSA - Racing Handbook
1. Pick Class-There are twenty four classes in the AMSA Off-road Series. Please choose the one that you feel is the best fit for your skill level. Below are the descriptions of all the classes, and the corresponding number plate colors. Age restrictions and race cut off times are dependent on each class. It is up to the rider to choose the class best suited o your skill set and at the end of each season riders will be advanced. If a course has an A/B split each class will ride their designated loop. A- loops are typically more advanced, any questions on format please refer to the RULE book. Race numbers are required for safety, manual back up scoring, and for other riders to identify racers in their respective classes.
2. Pick Number-Once you have decided on your class you will need to pick a number. We use the Mototally scoring system, and we CAN NOT have any duplicate numbers for people racing on the same day. Using the link below please look for an available race number on the bike number list. Current 2019 Race Numbers are held until February 27th, at which time if a Full or Family License has not been purchased the number will go back into the pool and become available for another racer to reserve.
3. Licence & Number Registration - Everyone requires a competition license to race and must read the 2020 Rule Book. New for 2020 AMSA OFFROAD & SECOND GEAR CLUB will be one combined license to race the two series!
4. Waiver - Every racer must sign a waiver.
5.Know before you go - Off road racing is a demanding sport and accidents can happen. While there are sweepers out there to help you stay safe you may be stuck alone before they arrive. Below is a list of things you need to know.
6. Race Day Schedule - We try to maintain a similar format at each race. Each race is put on by individual clubs so the schedule can vary, depending wether it is a Hare Scramble or X-country. PLEASE CHECK INDIVIDUAL RACE POSTERS ON AMSA 2020 SERIES, OR BLOG FOR UPDATES TO EACH EVENT.
