Guide to your CSA membership:

Everyone needs a CSA membership. A membership holder is entitled to enter any event, irrespective of discipline, without having to purchase a day license. A member is allowed to participate in a national series event (Except juniors, U23 and Elite Riders), but will not be eligible for national or provincial selection. A membership of Cycling SA is the most basic form of license and is an agreement of the rider to abide by the rules of the event in which they participate. Juniors, U23 and Elite riders who wants to participate in National Events would need to purchase and Domestic racing license as well.

Please remember to select the Absolute Motion Cycling Club as your club when you complete your domestic racing license application form.
