2018 District 36 Operations Manual

For 2018 there are eight changes.

Of special interest is rule 3.2.2 and 6.17.2 that are both the same with one (3.2.2) in the youth section and the other (6.17.2) in the adult section.  These rules (one for adults and one for youth) were introduced and passed to enforce the correct number plate / number color combinations in Cross Country Racing.  Riders showing up at Tech Inspection when going to the start line with the wrong color plates and/or numbers color – size combinations have been advised for the last two years but have always been allowed to race without correcting or being penalized. That changes starting in 2018….

The rules additions will affect riders that arrive at Tech Inspection with the incorrect plate combination.  They will still be able to race but will have to choose one of two options….
1) Go back and make or purchase temp plates with the correct colors, number, letter combination
or
2) Race with what they have, starting with a one-lap penalty.
