the fact that all riders must fill out a USABMX membership
form before your next race (one-time issue), we ask
that anyone calling in to pre-register that has not

no later then 12:00 noon. This is hoped to help with
the exceptionally high degree of paperwork expected
this week. We are striving to start as close to on-time
as possible knowing that it will be a challenge to do
in the coming weeks until everyone has filled out this
form. It is available in advance by clicking on button

in general. We appoligize for any confusion or inconvenience
this may cause.

- The NBL is changing the requirements to move from Rookie
to Novice (Now called Challenger) and from Challenger
to Expert. This change will be effective on January 1st,
What does it take to move from
Rookie to Challenger?
Since the idea of a Rookie in any other sport is that
of a first-season player, a Rookie will be moved up to
Challenger after a minimum of 40 Gate drops AND
a minimum of one (1) year racing.
If a rider has more than 40 Gate drops at any point in
the year, then he cannot move up until the end of the
full first year. If, however, a rider has less than 40
Gate drops at the end of the first year, then he cannot
move up until he achieves the 40 drops.
To move from Challenger to Expert,
a rider must meet the following three conditions:
1. A minimum of 100 gate drops (includes 40 earned as
