• Important reminder
about plate numbers: A rider’s current earned or sanction issued
number must appear on that rider’s number plate during all
competition. Examples of earned numbers include district,
state, national age group, national, gold cup, race of champions, pro
numbers, etc. – these numbers change every year and represent each
rider’s hard work at earning their ranking. On the other
hand, your sanction issued number is generally the last three digits of
your serial number. (See pages 17-18 of the USA BMX
rulebook for additional details). If you are not
running your sanction issued number, you need to update your plate each
year with an earned number - running an outdated earned number is not
permissible. We will be enforcing this rule at all Whip City
events. If you need to update your plate, please do so before
your next event; plates and numbers are commonly available from our
local on site bike shop vendor on Friday evenings.
Another alternative is to attach a “pie plate” to your bike
with written numbers if you are not able to update your plate before
the next race. If you would like to check your current
district ranking, please
visit the USA BMX website.
• It is very important to bring the paper
receipt you received for your new or renewed license
until you receive your permanent card - the
combination of the 8 digit (all numeric) serial number AS WELL AS your
4 digit validation code is especially important when you travel to
other tracks to race. You will need to present this receipt
at any USA BMX track to register. TIP: Take a copy of your paper
receipt and put it with your race equipment, or in all of your vehicle
consoles, etc. Be creative to make sure that you are never without it!
