April 30, 2013 (Wortham, Texas) – As the AMA Womens MX Cup meet approaches at Freestone Raceway on Memorial weekend, May 25th-27th, there is a new rule that is exciting to share with all the lady riders.
For years, many riders in the former association WMA (Womens Motocross Association) would lose they classification by racing in the basic classes because of the original AMA rule that once you move up, you could not move back down in classification. At the 2012 AMA Congress meeting, delegates voted and passed a rule that now allows women riders to move up in the Women ranks without sacrificing riding in the basic classes back home.
The new rule reads, “Women racers may drop down one Classification when racing outside designated Women’s classes. (ie: Womens A rider can race 250B class).”
