VXCS Supplementary Regulations
Goals and Tasks of Track Marshals:
* You NEVER overtake a racer unless exigent circumstances exist or in-route to an incident/emergency you are needed.
* You must NOT show any favoritism or bias towards one participant over another.
* If marshalling an event that a friend or family member is participating in, you may ride behind them
briefly in short increments but not in a manner that will be perceived as nepotism or that will impede on or alter the participant’s race.
* Ensure you are at the race well in advance of the start.
* You must wear high-viz clothing at all times during the race, or have vehicle visibly marked so as to let racers know you are VXCS personnel.
* Marshal vests are available at sign up trailer. Each vest is to be signed out and returned after the event is over.
* Increase safety for riders and participants.
* Enhance communication on course to provide faster response to injuries and situations requiring assistance.
* Direct riders on course.
* Discourage and report course cutting and/or inappropriate behavior, including non-racers riding on course.
* Record and report “dropped riders” (riders that are abandoning the race).
* Record and report riders that exhibit poor sportsmanship (inappropriate language, aggressive behavior, etc.).
* Provide encouragement
* Look out for and warn careless spectators (especially watch for young children.)
* Repair broken course markings
* Make track changes during race when needed as a result of track becoming impassable or causing excessive “bottlenecks”.
* Final sweep lap to ensure every rider has returned and the track is clear.

Ranking system:
Any rider who attends three or more races will have an “average overall finish calculated. This calculation will be as follows:
The lowest scoring race will be dropped and then the remaining finishes will be averaged. Example, a
rider who attended five races finished 20th, 15th, 14th ,60th, and 12th, will have the 60th place finish
dropped and the remaining 20+15+14+12= 61. 61 divided by four=15.25.
This score will then be ranked by the following standard:
1-8.999 = AA/PRO
9-12.999 = Expert/Pro-Am
13-25.999= A Class
26-45 = B Class
Any rider that is advanced due to the new ranking system will be notified as well as a list put on social
media platforms.
This ranking system only works in one direction. It may not be used to move down a class. Riders must
follow AMA petition guidelines to move down a class. 
 
WOMEN’S CLASSES RANKING SYSTEM 
Off-Road Performance Value (ORPV)
To be considered for advancement riders must have
a minimum of five points-paying finishes within the
rider’s classification. Race results that have a DNF,

DNS overall finish or zero advancement points will not
be used for calculating ORPV.

Riders earn performance points based on their finishes at each meet according to the following:

*Example: A rider has 18 B classification entries. The rider earns 256 points combined in 15 of those
entries and no points in the other three. To calculate the ORPV the total points earned (256) are divided

by the total number of classification entries in which points were earned (15). 256 divided by 15 = ORPV
of 17.06. The rider’s ORPV of 17.06 exceeds the 15-point cutoff, and they are advanced to the A
classification.
Classification Advancement 
1. All riders carrying an ORPV of 15 or higher at year end will be advanced to the next classification. 
2. Riders between the ages of 12 and 15 on Nov. 30th riding the B classification shall not be forced into
the A classification regardless of how many B races or advancement points the rider has. Riders in this
age group may advance based on their own ability/competence. 
3. No rider, youth or amateur, can be forced to compete in the A class until Jan. 1 following their 16th
birthday. A rider’s age for advancement will be determined as OFF-ROAD 2.1 68 of Nov. 30 of the
current year. Riders under 16 may advance on their own ability/competence. 
4. C Classification Advancement a. All C riders carrying an ORPV of 15 or higher at year end will be
advanced to the B classification. b. The following criteria are to be used when determining a rider’s
eligibility for the C classification: 
(1) No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider had an ORPV of 15 or higher the previous year in
the C classification.
(2) No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider has ever been classified as an A rider.
(3) No rider is to be classified as a C rider if that rider is receiving or has ever received any type of OEM
factory support in any classification. (Excluding OEM contingency and trackside support)
 
 
 
 
RIDER ELIGIBILITY AND CLASSIFICATION:
"A" Classes
* All riders in the top 10 overall ranking in any regional or state off-road series the previous year.
* All riders are ranked to “A” by the VXCS ranking system.
* Riders that have an "A" ranking in any other off-road series. This applies to both AMA and non-AMA sanctioned events.
"B" Classes
* Riders with a "B" ranking in any other off-road series (AMA and non-AMA sanctioned events).
* "B" riders placing in the top 20 overall ranking in any regional or state off-road series the previous year.
* All "C" riders ranked to “B” by the VXCS ranking system.
Novice "C" Classes: Novice skill level riders and riders that do not otherwise qualify as an “A” or “B”
level rider.
Youth Classes: No “A class” riders are permitted to compete in any “Youth” class.  AMA Racing Rule,
Section 2.1.E.1.e.  Hence, Youth riders are prohibited from competing in any “A” division in any non- VXCS off-road event/series.  
Warrior Classes: Restricted to active military and veterans. Military ID Required.
Age Divisions: For all Youth classes, age is determined by the rider’s age on January 1. However, a youth
rider may voluntarily advance to a higher age division if he will be eligible to do so at any time during the
year, but once a youth rider advances to the higher age division, he may not return to the younger age
division. For all Amateur classes, the age of the rider is determined as of the date of the event. 
However, riders competing in a younger age division are not required to move to an older age division
once they become eligible to do so. 
Changing Classes: A rider may petition to move to a lower classification based on class finishes and time
differences. However, the rider must first petition the AMA (in the event of an AMA-ranked rider) or the
rider’s home district for reclassification and provide proof of grant of reclassification prior to competing
in the lower class.
Rider Advancement: Riders advanced in their local series prior to completion of the VXCS series may
continue to compete in the VXCS class in which they started the season, so long as they do not
voluntarily compete in the higher classification prior to the start of the next race season of their local
series, i.e., SETRA, GNCC, VCHSS, etc.
.
**Advancement of Jr. Mini riders**
Each Jr. Mini rider will be evaluated after one year of participation for possible advancement. This is an
effort to reduce “sand bagging” and potential hazards to the other beginner level Jr. Mini riders.
Example: if a Jr. Mini rider is 9 years old and lapping all other participants multiple times and riding
aggressively as a much-advanced rider then that rider will be asked to self- promote. If the rider/family
refuses to self-promote the ranking system will be implemented on the Micro’s and the rider will be
promoted through overall finishes. The only alteration to the ranking system for the Jr. Mini class will be
if the rider has an average overall finish of 2 or less, they will be advanced to Mini event.
Riding Out of Class: Riders must compete in their designated or assigned skill level and may not “ride
down” at the VXCS, i.e., riders that compete at the “A” or “B” level in any other series or events must
compete at the “A” or “B” level in VXCS. This applies to AMA and non-AMA sanctioned events.  Riders
determined to be riding out of class will be removed from the race results for that event and prohibited
from competing further in such class, and the class rescored.  In addition, the rider will forfeit all prior
championship points earned in the current year during their ineligibility for the class. Objections to class
eligibility must be supported by data and will be accepted up to 48 hours after results are posted.
Self-Advancement:
A rider may choose at any time to advance to a higher rider classification. 

Participation in or advancement to a higher class in any AMA or non-AMA Off-Road meet by any rider
will result in permanent advancement to that higher class in all AMA-sanctioned Off-Road OFF-ROAD 2.1
66 competition. Off- Road racers will ride all off-road meets in the highest classification earned. OffRoad
includes Enduro, Hare Scrambles, Desert Scrambles, Grand Prix, Cross Country, Hare and Hound and like
type meets.

REGISTRATION:
Rider must have a valid AMA Card and D-13 card in hand at sign-up. Transponder must be placed on the
helmet and checked before leaving the registration area.
Riders must register for the race before riding their machine anywhere. Riders must always wear a
helmet and may not exceed 1st gear idle when traveling to/from their pit area. Warm-up riding is
limited to the start area by registered riders only after an official has given permission.
Rider’s helmets must be taken through Tech Inspection prior to competing for the purpose of inspecting
transponder functioning, helmet tag placement, number assignment, and contingency eligibility. It is the
participant's responsibility to check that their transponder corresponds with their class and personal
information. Safety equipment and machine eligibility are the sole responsibility of the rider. This
happens at the registration trailer!

THE COURSE:
Arrows will be used to direct competitors on the proper route when the terrain does not clearly dictate.
Unless otherwise instructed at the riders meeting, riders must not ride more than 20 feet from the
course marking arrows. If double arrows are posted on both sides of the trail (e.g., double arrows are
placed directly opposite each other or within 10 feet of being directly opposite), riders must remain
between the arrows. A marked course is defined as an established trail containing arrows along a
marked path. Double arrows are defined as one arrow placed immediately above another arrow.
Ribbons, signs, banners, hay bales, etc., may be placed along the trail to help guide riders. Ribbons and
banners may not be crossed or ridden through. Riders riding outside these areas may be penalized.

A “bottleneck” is a section of trail that becomes impassable due to riders stopping, falling, or getting
stuck while attempting to traverse an obstacle and in doing so does not provide enough space for
another rider to pass. Any rider encountering a bottleneck on the course shall be allowed to go more
than 20 feet off the course but must re-enter the course immediately after the bottleneck or as close as
practical to the bottleneck. This alternate route may not be used during the following laps unless a
bottleneck condition continues to exist.

Riders who attempt to proceed through the scoring lane at high rates of speed, endangering the scoring
personnel and equipment, may not be scored and could be penalized. Leaving the scoring tent prior to being scored may result in no score for the rider.
When being scored, the rider must make every effort to clear the scoring lane quickly so as to not create
bottlenecks. No pit activities, finding drink water tubes, adjusting or checking mechanical items or
performing any other non-scoring function that delays the next rider to be scored will be done inside the
scoring area. Riders must enter the scoring area in a timely manner and exit the scoring area in a timely manner.
Riders are required to use the transponder and the rider number given to them at signup. Riders who

To be considered for year-end awards at the VXCS awards banquet a rider must receive points in a
minimum 7 out of 9 rounds of the VXCS races that are run during the current season. All riders that meet
the race requirements will be recognized with awards at the banquet. 
If ties are encountered at the end of the season the rider that scores points in the most events will be
considered the winner of the tie. A backup tie-breaker will be used if the first tie-breaker results in a tie.
The backup tie-breaker will be to count finishing positions. Count 1st place first, 2nd place second, 3rd
place third, etc. 
Each rider will have one (1) throwaway per season. This number may be adjusted as deemed necessary
in the event of race cancellations. Other actions may be taken by the VXCS for any reason as deemed
necessary.

Championship Points:
Riders must complete half the laps of their class leader to accrue championship points. 
If you sign up and attend the start of the race you are accredited for attending the event and this will be
applied to banquet eligibility. This includes mechanical error on the starting line that prevents the
participant from physically starting the race.

Throwaway/Drops
VXCS will utilize one drop/throw away per racing season. 
“Throwaway/drop” is defined as the action of dropping a rider’s lowest scoring event out of all the
races.  If the season is nine races, then each rider’s final class finishes would be calculated using only
eight of the races. Example: if a rider attends 9 out of 9 races and their finishes are 1st, 3rd,1st, 8th, 4th,
2nd, 1st, 2nd, 2nd, then the 8th place finish would be a “throwaway/drop” and will not be used in the
final score to determine yearly class placing. This also applies if a person is unable to attend one event,
then that person is not penalized for not being at one race.
