Sport Membership + Annual Race Licence
Sport Membership + Event Licence
In 2024, we are introducing an Event Licence to give you the flexibility to choose. Event Licences are available to be added onto Sport Memberships for selected domestic events for non-UCI categories only. This caters to those who want to give national-level racing a go, but don’t need a licence for the whole season. The alternative to this is to add on an Annual Domestic Race Licence, which will licence you for racing all year.
Event Licences for Age Group Road Nationals are available for the following categories:
– U15, U17, U19, U23, Senior, Masters 1 – 10
(Para cycling grades are not eligible for an Event Licence at AGRN as for these events you will require a UCI ID, which an Event Licence does not provide)
Please note: to obtain an Event Licence, you must first hold a Sport Membership. Age Group Road Nationals Event Licences can be purchased HERE.
