Milton....
01.18.2015

The FCV will not be issuing any cards for riders who have misplaced their Track 1 cards.

It is impossible for the FCV to know when a rider took the class or how they did.

It is the responsibility of each rider to show they can ride the track.

Thank you for your understanding.

FCV Management team.
