March 22, 2017

Affected Discipline: MX and SX Classic MX ATV MX   Rule Pertains to: Appendix B : MX Yellow Flags

Rule Wording Update:

Yellow flag, held stationary: Danger, ride cautiously.

Yellow flag, waved: Great danger, prepare to stop, no overtaking. A significant reduction in speed must be observed; therefore, jumps should not be attempted. (The waved yellow flag is superior to the stationary yellow flag)


The alignment of MX yellow flag regulations to FIM standards was approved under the 2016 Meeting Minutes for rule changes. The wording in the published version of the Manual of Motorcycle Sport is therefore incorrect. Please ensure this addendum is noted for immediate effect. This rule has been updated in the Online version of the 2017 Manual of Motorcycle Sport, available on the MA website here:
