Anyone can enter an NMA event just for fun, but to be considered for series points and trophies, riders must purchase a Competition License and be an NMA member in good standing. Click here to join! If you prefer, you can still print and mail-in your NMA Membership and your Competition License forms. Either way, be sure you are registered (postmarked) by the day of the first event you want scored for season points.
Competition Licenses expire at the end of the race season. NMA memberships are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase or renewal. Be sure to keep your membership current to remain eligible for season points.
The NMA Competition Committee serves all three series. Click here for information about the Committee members. All racers are required to have read the Rule Book and know the rules. For further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask any of the Competition Committee members.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What are the rule changes for 2018? To summarize briefly, we made only 2 primary rule changes this year. First, due to very low participation and to match up with OMRA we have changed the 200 classes to 250 classes. You can read the specifics on the Off-Road and Enduro pages and in the Rule Book. Second, for safety reasons we have created a minimum wheel size for NMA competitors. A front wheel smaller than 17" will not be permitted. This has been added as rule 1(C)6 in the Rule Book.
I received my NMA card but not my Competition License. What do I do? We do not send out actual Competition Licenses. If you are listed on our score sheets, then we have you in our system. You can verify your competition registration here by checking here - if you are listed, then we have you: Off-Road, Enduro, Trials
How do I know what my racing number is? We don't worry about your numbers - if you provided a number on your registration, that's your number. See above to verify your competition registration details. (NOTE: There are rules about your CLASS LETTER in the Off-Road series. See the Off-Road page and the Rule Book, Table 1B on page 5, for more details.)
How do I know what class I should register for? This is a bit trickier. We are working on some sort of guidelines to post. In the meantime, I suggest you email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to guide you personally.
If you were promoted to a higher class in 2017 (or any time in the past), you must register in that class unless and until you petition the Competition Committee. Thanks for cooperating. Racing in a class below your ability is poor sportsmanship and a missed opportunity to improve yourself.
Don't worry about what time of year it is. NMA memberships expire at the end of your membership term - on the anniversary date. For example, if you're paying for a membership in July your renewal will come due in July the following year.
