Youth Classes

Please note: certain age groups when entering via the ACU/Sport80 website will notice that they have the choice of two courses.

A youth of 16 can ride as an adult and a Youth C could ride as a Youth B. It all depends on the date of your birthday. Below is TSR1 extracted from the ACU handbook.

a) Adult riders: A rider must be at least 16 years of age to participate as an Adult.
b) Sidecar passengers: In principle, a Sidecar passenger must be an Adult however riders may be allowed to
compete in Adult events subject to the discretion of the Trials and Enduro Committee and subject to them having a minimum age of 12 yrs Nominated drivers/passengers must ride the entire event in their designated positions.
c) Youth Riders: A rider must be at least 4 years of age to participate on an Electric powered machine and 6 years of age to participate in a trial using a combustion engine machine. After their 16th birthday a rider may compete as an Adult or as an A Class Youth until the end of the calendar year that they reach 17yrs and may alternate (an event to event basis) between Youth and Adult classes subject to the following:

  • whilst riding as an A Class Youth the rider is restricted to machines of an A Class Youth
  • whilst riding as an Adult, capacity restrictions do not apply.
    Any rider who competes as an Adult in the Championship Class of the Adult British Solo Trials Championship relinquishes the possibility to revert to Youth in the future.
    d) Minders/Assistants: In events where Minder/Assistants are allowed, their minimum age must be 18 yrs. YOUTH AGE GROUPS
