AHRMA’s Dick Mann National Championship Team Challenge is Announced

AHRMA has created a National Championship series within AHRMA that includes each of our disciplines, highlighting our Premier vintage classes.  This is our way to revisit a prominent era that ended in the 1970s. It’s a fun way for AHRMA members to become involved with the competitions, riders and bikes in all disciplines while showcasing our most prestigious machines.

Each year the Executive Committee, with input from the board, will pick the specific classes for each discipline, i.e., 500 premier VMX, F750 RR, etc.  All Team Challenge races will run at the AHRMA Classic MotoFests where feasible with alternate venues set as necessary. The schedule is set for 2021, dates are listed below.

Disciplines and Classes for the 2021 season are:

  • VMX – Premier 500
  • Trials – Premier LW
  • Flat track – 70’s singles
  • Cross Country – Premier
  • RR – Premier 500

The points system is balanced and set for the entire series, (the points keeper will review results from each Team Challenge event(s) and post a separate tally within a week of each event).  For the Off-Road disciplines, team members and points accumulation is irrespective of skill level.

  • 1st in any discipline 25 points
  • 2nd – 20 points
  • 3rd – 15 points
  • 4th – 10 points
  • 5th – 5 points
  • 6th and down 0 points
