Information to help get you started at Horsham MCC

– Sturdy workwear boots

You do not need to have body armour and motorbike jersey, pants and boots to get started, however as you progress these will be required. The coaches and committee members can provide advice on suitable types of gear. From time to time, members have gear they will advertise for sale

ALL OTHER RIDING/RACNG AT THE TRACK REQUIRES FULL SAFETY GEAR. Example: Helmet, goggles, gloves, long sleeve jersey and motorbike pants, motorbike boots. Body armour is required for junior riders.

Kickstart program

Kicksart program is an introduction to racing protocol, club policies and safety procedures before you start racing. Completion of the Academy of Motocross or Kickstart program is a requirement prior to getting a race licence and are held throughout the year for both the rider and guardian. If you wish to get started, contact one of our committee members for further information.

Endorsement program

Once the Academy of Motocross or the Kickstart program is completed, you apply to Motorcycling Victoria (our state controlling body) for a race licence, which includes an endorsement to ride a particular type and size of bike. As you progress to bigger bikes, you are required to have a coach endorse your capabilities to ride the bigger bike. Once completed, the endorsement is uploaded to your ridernet profile. (moving from 85 small wheel to 85 big wheel size does not require an endorsement)

Bike size/age requirements

There are rules around what bike size you are able to ride, depending on your age. Committee members are available at any time to provide assistance when purchasing a bike and often know of used motorbikes for sale – if this is what you are seeking.

Parent/Guardian participation

On any day your child/children are riding, we expect a parent/guardian to remain at the venue with the child/children. We are a small club and require a parent/guardian to volunteer their time on the day as a flag person, volunteer in the canteen or other roles suited to your skillset. It’s not a difficult requirement and we assist all volunteers in learning the role.
