On August 1 2006, the UCI introduced the permanent number system for men and women elite riders, which allowed riders exclusive use of their selected number for their entire career.

The system is seen as an opportunity for riders to better market themselves and assist media and spectators to identify them. For the Aussies, the likes of recent Olympians Caroline Buchanan (#68), Sam Willoughby (#91), Bodi Turner (#747), Lauren Reynolds (#21) and Anthony Dean (#44) have done this to great effect.

Now there is a chance for riders who have recently become eligible for a permanent career number, or who have not previously applied, to claim their own identifiable set of digits. Only riders that will compete in the elite class in 2018 are able to apply.

Applications are due to BMX Australia no later than October 11, 2017. BMXA will then submit forms on behalf of all riders applying prior to October 13.

Riders who possess a career number, but have not scored any UCI points in the last season, will need to re-apply for their number. This will be subject to the normal procedure as mentioned in the UCI rule book, ยง 10 International permanent race number system, (art. 6.1.073 to 6.1.076).
