MTB NEWS: 2012 XC NPS Rider Grading
11 Jan 2012,

Email this article

The 2012 XC NPS grades have been assigned per riders who have raced in the 2011 NPS (ie; riders who appear in the 2011 XC NPS league tables).

The majority of initial duplicate values have now been removed, if your name appears more than once this means that you likely raced in several different categories during the year, for any riders in this situation the default will be that you will be allocated to the HIGHER category.

Several riders have either upgraded themselves during the 2011 season and thus will continue in the category they upgraded to, or have been identified for upgrade.

Riders are welcome/encouraged to upgrade themselves to a higher category if they feel that they will have more of a challenge, it also means you will get better value out of your licence and entry fee by racing an additional lap!

Clubs are also requested to help riders decide their categories for 2012, and give riders on-the-border a little nudge up to the next category.
