About Regional Qualifying and Rider Ranking
The Walton TransCan is a limited entry event. There are 42 gate positions available for each class. Gate positions are held open with an appropriate number of gates in every class allocated by the number of racers in each region of Canada. If a region’s allocated gate positions are not filled by the close of pre-entry on June 23rd they are returned to the pool of available gate positions.
Riders are ranked for the Walton TransCan. The ranking is based on the Amateur National Qualifiers (ANQ) in order to ensure that Canada’s best athletes make it to the limited start gate. ANQ events are those regional events identified by the TransCan as being most representative of each region’s talent. It is the responsibility of the riders to ensure that any ANQ results are posted in their region accurately. Date of entry is used as a tiebreaker in ranking points.
Failure to participate in ANQs results in received rider entries being ranked after all ANQ participant entries. Low ranking results in late gate pick for the first moto. In a full class, you will not get a starting position. Riders are encouraged to achieve their best possible result in ANQs, pre-enter TransCan for maximum savings and thereby get their best start gate position for the first moto and best assurance of being on the line as one of 42 of the finest from across the country.
