I ride an 85cc bike and I am 11 years old right now but will be turning 12 during the motocross season, should I be competing in the 85cc (9 – 11) or 85cc (12 – 16) division?

Racers are categorized according to their age on January 1st of that year. Therefore, if a rider turns 12 during the race season he/she will be permitted to continue competing in the 85cc (9 – 11) division for the remainder of the season. If a racer wishes to move up to the next age category after their birthday they may do so, however they will no longer be permitted to compete in the younger division.

How does the “move-up” system work for riders in the Novice and Intermediate divisions?

When you compete in a class where “Upgrade Points” apply, you earn points by finishing overall in the top four. The points awarded are: 1st 4 points, 2nd – 3 points, 3rd – 2 points, 4th – 1 point. Once a racer has accumulated the required amount of upgrade points he/she will be required to advance to the higher class. If a rider obtains the required advancement points past the half-way point within a point series, they will be allowed to continue in their class until the end of that series.

To proceed from 65cc “B” to 65cc “A”, 18 advancement points are required.
To proceed from “Beginner to Junior”, 15 advancement points are required.
To proceed from “Junior to Intermediate”, 30 advancement points are required.
To proceed from “Int” to “Pro”, 40 advancement points are required.

Racers may request in writing to CMX Racing to advance to a higher class prior to accumulating the required amount of upgrade points, a decision will be made by the Race Director.
