Age Limits[edit]

The minimum age of a rider to compete is 16 years of age (starting on the date of the rider's birthday). The maximum age is 19 years of age (finishing at the end of the year in which the rider celebrates his 19th birthday).

Eligibility[edit]

The riders of each team must be of the same nationality as the FMN that has nominated them. The limit for the minimum age (16 years) starts on the date of the rider’s birthday and the limit for the maximum age (19 years) finishes at the end of the year in which the rider reaches 19 years.

Team composition[edit]

The 4 competing teams shall each consist of 5 riders: 4 riders having programmed riders and the fifth rider being a substitute, as follows:

  • Team A (Helmet colour Red): No 1, 2, 3, 4 and 17
  • Team B (Blue): No 5, 6, 7, 8 and 18
  • Team C (White): No 9, 10, 11, 12 and 19
  • Team D (Yellow/Black): 13, 14, 15, 16 and 20.

The substitute rider may take the place of any programmed rider at any time, within the maximum number of permitted heats (5+1 additional heat as tactical substitution, where applicable) when decided by the Team Manager.

A tactical substitution can be introduced by a team with 6 or more points in arrears of the leading team. Each team member is permitted to be a tactical substitution only once in the meeting. The use of a tactical substitute rider must stop as soon as the team is no longer 6 or more points behind the leading team.

In Heats 17-20 if riders of the same Team are tied on points, the Team Manager will determine which rider will ride in each heat.
