ELIGIBILITY:

Any licensed racer can attend and gain points in the SK Cup Race Series.

Any attending rider can earn a “P” plate at Grands as long as they qualify for Grands by attending at least 50% of the series events.

Riders earn “P” plates by accumulating points at each SK Cup BMX Provincial Series race (#1,#2,#3,#,4 and Grands). 

Out-of-province riders may contest Provincial Championship races but are not eligible to claim any medal or provincial title.

 

LICENSE:

 

You must have an In-Province or UCI license to compete in the Sask Cup BMX Series of races.  

 

A general membership only allows you to ride at your local track, not race at a SCA sanctioned event. The General license will only be allowed for use for the Strider/Under 4 Pedal Event.

You will be asked to present your race licence when checking in.  If you do not have your license, you may be denied from racing.
