SUBJECT:    COMPETITION BULLETIN 2015-3: Revised Women’s Classes

It is necessary to clarify the 2015 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship National Classes and Supplemental Rules with regard to the women’s classes.  To avoid confusion, the name of the Women’s (16+) class has been changed from Women (16+) Pro Sport to Women (16+) All-Star.  Further, the class eligibility requirements have been revised to clarify that riders with an AMA “B” classification are eligible for either class – Women (16+) All-Star and Women (14+) class.  However, at the National only one class can be chosen as they will race together.

The revised rule provides:

4.   a. The following women riders are eligible for the Women (16+) All-Star class:

i. Riders placing in the top 10 overall in the Women (14+) class at the previous National who are 16 years or older as of January 1 of the current year;
ii. Riders issued a WMX or FIM license while also holding an AMA “A” classification; and
iii. Riders holding an AMA “A” or “B” classification.

        b. The following women riders are eligible for the Women (14+) class:

i. Riders holding an AMA “B” or “C” classification; and
ii. Formerly-licensed WMX riders with an AMA “B” classification, unless otherwise ineligible.

        c. For purposes of clarification, no “A” class riders are permitted to compete in any “Youth” classes, i.e., current licensed WMX riders are not permitted to compete in any Youth class.  AMA Racing Rule, Section 1.1.E.1.e.

All participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the LL Supplemental Rules prior to competing in any events.
