Brian Anthony started this petition to FIM Motocross Commission (FIM Motocross Commission) and

This ruling is not in the best interest for the sport and it affects many countries world wide such as France, Australia, Germany and so on, with competitors who represent their country at an elite level. Putting an age limit on riders is very discriminatory when all riders over 50 must qualify on their own merits and have already sucessfully completed health checks including an ECG Heart Stress Test to make sure they are fit and healthy enough to compete safely.

Ruling;                                                                                                                       036.2.2 Age of drivers and passengers
Licences for drivers and passengers are issued for the FIM Sidecar Motocross
World Championship, only when the minimum age has been attained as below:
- FIM Sidecar Motocross, World Championship, drivers: 16 years
- FIM Sidecar Motocross World Championship, passengers: 16 years
The limit for the minimum age starts on the date of the driver's/passenger's
birthday and the limit for the maximum age finishes at the end of the calendar
year in which the driver/passenger reaches the age of 50.
