Amateur Vs. Expert
Each class is run in Amateur and Expert classes, which correspond to the riders' previous experience and accomplishments. All riders begin as Amateurs upon receiving their race license for the first time, and after they have raced for sufficient time to gain sufficient experience, and have had a sufficient level of success, they will be promoted to Expert. Promotion from Amateur to Expert is determined by CCS's points system. A rider can easily be identified as being Amateur or Expert not only by his lap times, but also by the background of his bike's number plates, which should be yellow for Amateurs and white for Experts.
Famous quotes containing the words expert and/or amateur:
“People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.”
—George Carey (b. 1935)
“The true gardener then brushes over the ground with slow and gentle hand, to liberate a space for breath round some favourite; but he is not thinking about destruction except incidentally. It is only the amateur like myself who becomes obsessed and rejoices with a sadistic pleasure in weeds that are big and bad enough to pull, and at last, almost forgetting the flowers altogether, turns into a Reformer.”
—Freya Stark (18931993)
