They are going to introduce 2 different athlete license categories: amateur (AM) and professional (PRO), helping young and upcoming riders and enable them to participate in the FMB Word Tour. Riders with AM license will be able to collect ranking points counting towards a European or North American AM ranking list.
Several steps have been taken to regulate the invitation process for FMB World Tour events, to ensure that riders are given the best opportunity to improve their ranking. Diamond and Gold events will be required to guarantee a certain amount of starting places for the the top Pro Riders. Same for Silver and Bronze event, they have to guarantee starting places for PRO and AM riders.
