Go back to the online entry.  Last year he was 14.  This year he's 17.

 

Oh, no, your mistake, Mr Argus.  You see I have two sons with the same name.  Makes it much easier to remember who to call.

 

Bit law abiding for a MTBer aren't you, Kranswurm?

It automatically picks up his age fro his PPA membership an ID number

Don't know about Argus MTB but my son has ridden the Sabie Experience the last 2 years (age limit 17, his first when he was 15), not the youth cat that was added this year I mean the full wack.

 

I mailed the organisers gave them some of his race results etc. and they put me in contact with the race commisaire who then evaluated it and decided to allow him to ride. Important in this case was that he was riding with his father whom they decided would ensure he was OK. What they didn't know is that I was the one suffering not him but anyway my point is there is a 'proper' way that may also work!

 

On the other hand maybe enter with someone else's ID number? Does he mind being called by a different name for a day (only a few hours actually!).

You can change your membership details on the PPA site, I think.  You could just go and change the ID no, enter and change it back.

 

Hypothetically.

Don't speak to someone' date=' speak to either Meurant or Arina.[/quote']

 

Spoke to Arina the day before and bawled her out about the slow online site so I thought I would give her a break.

 

You are right though,will chat to them.Or just do a hypothetical

You sound like quite a badass bikemonster!

 

Hard to tell if there's a hefty dollop of irony in there Velouria.

 

In truth I am as sweet as syrup and mild as a lamb.

 

I just like to be able to get my own way, is all.
