Ride Park Managers are responsible to manage rider
safety through groupings of participants based on ability and speed, not rider
age or bike capacity. It’s important to not think of riders as junior or senior
but as a beginner, intermediate or experienced rider and group them accordingly
with the flexibility to move riders to other groups as the day progresses or as
the Ride Park Manager deems appropriate.
For the purpose of this Guideline:
Beginner: This group is for
riders that include children, parents and participants possibly new to
motorcycle riding. It’s to be managed at an appropriate speed to cater for the
youngest or most novice of riders. The start straight run on a MX Track may present
as an appropriate area for parents to teach their children how to ride.
Intermediate: This group is for
those who have sound motorcycle ability but possibly not ridden on tracks
before. As with all groups, the intermediate group participation should be
based on ability regardless of age.
Advanced: The advanced group is
ideal for those who frequent ride parks and possibly hold or have held a
The Ride Park Manager has the authority to remove
any rider from the track who is deemed to be riding recklessly, or putting
other riders’ safety at risk, or whose behaviour falls short of the expected
standard set out in the RPD Guidelines.
To comply with Ride Park Days non-competitive
status, venues must not use a mass start, or time/score riders in any way which
will determine a finish order, and no award for performance can be given.
