Additional information for states regarding teams:

If states have insufficient Senior aged competitors to fill their state Senior team, surplus Junior riders may be chosen to compete in the Senior team.

This applies in the following cases:

  1. There are enough Junior aged riders available to form a Junior team but there is not enough Senior aged riders to form a Senior team,
  2. There are not enough riders available to form either a Junior team or a Senior team, however combined, there is enough riders available to form a combined Senior team.

The following conditions will apply:

  • Seniors must have first priority on places in senior teams. If eligible Senior aged riders are available for selection then these riders must be chosen.
  • Juniors who filled senior teams must be competent to jump 95cm and run 3 km.
  • Juniors in a Senior class will compete as individuals and Team members in the Senior classes.
