To give everyone a chance of doing well, riders compete in event classes according to their age (or combined age for teams) and gender.
The classes Midland Trailquests use are as follows:
|Solo or Team of 2 (Combined Team Age)||Teams of 2 Only (Combined Team Age)|
|M<40||Man 17 - 39 (34 - 79)||X<80||Mixed Team (34 - 79)|
|F<40||Woman 17 - 39 (34 - 79)||X<100||Mixed Team (80 - 99)|
|M<50||Man 40 - 49 (80 - 99)||X<200||Mixed Team (100+)|
|F<50||Woman 40 - 49 (80 - 99)||G||Generation Team (Youth 12-16 & Adult 18+)|
|M<60||Man 50 - 59 (100 - 119)|
|F<60||Woman 50 - 59 (100 - 119)|
|M<100||Man 60 plus (120+)|
|F<100||Woman 60 plus (120+)|
Our event entry pages will work out which class you must ride in from the details you and any riding partner supplied when you registered with us.
When competing in league events, we have to ensure that competitors stay in the same class throughout the league. Our website will therefore calculate the correct class from the age of the rider(s) on the date of the first event in the league, and this will then apply for all other events in that league.
If you are riding a standalone event that is not part of any league, your class will be determined by your age(s) on the date of that event alone.
Riders under 12 may not ride our events and riders between 12 & 16 must be part of a Generation Team (partnered by a rider over 18). Note that where league events apply, riders must have attained these ages on or before the date of the first event in the league.
