Please note that it is the rider’s responsibility to advance in proficiency when they reach the required number of wins for advancement. Riding out of class will result in the forfeiture of points and possible suspension. See "III. Proficiency Advancement" section on the BMX Canada rulebook for more detailed information.
The best way to find out how many wins you have is to check your race history on your Rider Profile page. One of the best benefits of BMX Canada membership, you can have your own Rider Profile page which links up with your points and racing history and automatically build up a Virtual Trophy Room and display your earned number plates and ranking(s).
Here's the "STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO CREATE YOUR RIDER PROFILE". If you are a rider under the age of 13, your parent or legal guardian must create his/her own account before creating your rider profile.
* Please note some race results take some time to be processed and might not be on your Race History. We recommend that you keep track of your wins as well.
