Due to a considerable number of riders against incorporating a “C” grade into our sport we have decided to “scrap” the proposed rule change and return to the status quo.
Thank you to all who returned their opinion on the subject.
Next year will effectively run the same as this year except there is one rule to be implemented that states that you remain in the grade that you start in unless you get written approval from the grading committee [consists of commissioner and island coordinators]. Your written application to change grades will need to include an endorsement from another MNZ licensed ‘Trials’ person.
S.I. Rounds 3&4 will now be held in Nelson on 16/17 April. We sincerely regret the need to make this change.
