FEGENTRI & AMATEUR RACES ABROAD 2012
Applications are invited from AJA members who are UK licensed amateur riders to represent Great Britain and ride not only in the Fegentri series 2012 but also in other international races. In 2008 our selected riders, Danny Cook and Gemma Gracey-Davison, were runners up to the Fegentri World Champions and in 2009 and 2010 Claire Allen and Ruth Jefferson also achieved this status.
You will need an understanding guv’nor and strong home support as Fegentri demands regular weekend trips abroad. You will also need stamina as travel, delays and time changes can sap your energy! All thoughts of turning professional will have to wait until the end of the Fegentri season (October for men, December for ladies). You must have ridden 5 wins under Rules and do 9 stone for ladies, 10 stone for lads. The AJA will cover travel expenses and the host nations will pay for accommodation abroad.
If you think that this is something that you would enjoy, please contact Sarah Oliver as soon as possible by completing and returning: applicationformfegentri2012.doc. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01886 884488 for further details. These forms have been posted out to all AJA members. All applicants will be kept on file for future consideration of any invitation races and also for future representation. Applications for Fegentri 2012 close on 31st December 2011 but the sooner you send in your form the better!
