All the above are age as at 1st January 2014. Where the overlaps occur, riders must decide at the commencement of the season, which group they intend to compete within for that year and then, remain in that group for the entire season.

A rider of schoolboy age who has competed in adult racing can only ride with the YMSA as an Expert Plus rider after their 16th birthday and only, then after successful application to their individual club Committee.

Any YMSA rider who reaches the upper age limit in his/her class on or after January 1st must complete the season in that class. Riders who have to ride in another class at a schoolboy meeting at AMCA, BYMX or BSMA because of their age will not have their YMSA status affected.
