Equiptment
  1. Machines entered in all events must have silencers. Machines may be tested by officials at any time prior to, during or after the event. The sound level for events is 96dB.
  2. The machine a rider leaves the starting line on is considered the official machine for the rider during that event, and he may not switch during the event.
  3. Bikes or quads without serial numbers and/or identifying numbers on the engine will not be allowed to run in any displacement class. They must run in an open displacement class or an age-based category, if eligible.

Tech Inspection
There will be a tech inspection before each event. The following will be checked:
  • sound checks will be done in 2013
  •  registration vs. numbers on front and side number plates/back of quads
Course
  1. A cross country meet is conducted over a course that may include roads, trails, footpaths, up and down hills, motocross tracks, or any type of terrain which can be negotiated by a motorcycle or ATV.
  2. Participants are allowed to walk or bicycle the course prior to the event. Any rider caught "flagging" or otherwise altering any part of the race course before the event will be disqualified. No pre-riding for practice purposes is allowed nor is anyone allowed to ride a motorcycle or ATV on the course before an event without the expressed permission of the promoter.
  3. Only riders officially entered or course marshals may ride on any portion of the course or facility the day of the event.
  4. Any time a rider leaves the course for any reason he must re- enter the course at the same spot he originally exited.
  5. All riders must remain on the marked course and ride it as marked and intended. Anytime arrows are posted on both sides of the trail, riders must stay between the arrows.

  6. Any rider more than 20ft off the marked course at any point, except when encountering a bottleneck, will be disqualified.* Riders encountering a traffic jam or bottleneck along the course shall be allowed to go off the course to get around the bottleneck only. However, the rider must re-enter the course as soon as possible, and upon approaching this section the next lap, must ride the original arrowed section if the track is clear. If these marking devices are knocked down, riders should stay on the original marked course. Short cutting in these areas could result in injury/penalty/disqualification. A "bottleneck" is a section of the track that becomes impassable due to riders falling and getting stuck.
