Two new competition classes established    

The IHPVA has established two new competition classes for Junior Riders and Multitrack Vehicles. The purpose of the classes is to recognize prior achievements by younger riders and multi-wheeled vehicles and to promote their activity and development in the future. 

Achievements in both classes will be recognized retroactively back to September 19th, 1980 – the incorporation date of the IHPVA.

The junior classes recognize three age groups – 11 years and under, 12 -14 and 15-17. Multitrack vehicles have three or more contact points with the ground and a minimum track width of 250 mm. This covers the increasingly popular tricycle configuration.

They are subclasses of current classes which include men’s and women's, so a junior female riding a tricycle in a 200m sprint would be classified as 200 Meter Speed Trial- Women’s – Multitrack- Junior 12-14 years, for example.

For full details of these new rules please go to the IHPVA website and click on ‘Rules’ at the top of the page.
