As to promote the participation of pilots to compete in the Belgian Classic Bike Championship, the FMWB has decided to reduce drastically the fees for the national annual license.
For pilots residing in Belgium , such Belgian national license has been reduced to 125,08€ The fee for a “one event only” license however has been pulled up to 50€(for 2 days), 65€(for 3 days)
For pilots residing out of Belgium, it is also possible to request for a Belgian national license at the price of 220,08€. The extra costs cover for repatriation insurance and for shipping fees. A “one event only” license costs 75€(for 2 days), 85€(for 3 days) including repatriation insurance.
May we remind you such national annual license gives access to the final Belgian Championship ranking (which you DON’T have in case you race with “one event only” licenses). An extra advantage covered by this national annual license is the hospitalization insurance. This insurance offers 24/24 coverage, be it in your workshop or during track events (demonstrations, practices, races…). The international license automatically includes a repatriation insurance coverage. A license gives access to all racing series included in the FMB-BMB Classic Bike regulations.
Participating in only 3 events of all listed here above one is financially much better off with a national annual license then with 3 “one event only” licenses.
ATTENTION: For certain tracks, in France and in The Netherlands, organizing open practice sessions, a Civil Liability Insurance is mandatory. One can obtain such insurance through the FMWB.
Some complementary remarks:
The national license is only valuable in Belgium and does not cover any repatriation (except the one for pilot residing out of Belgium). For participation in foreign races one must send a “Start permission” request (= license request for 1 foreign manifestation) to the FMWB costing an extra 65,08€ for each and every manifestation.
An international license covers as much foreign manifestations as desired and also contains a repatriation insurance coverage. Please bear in mind some foreign tracks request such license, even for a sole practice.
One also can choose for a “practice license” (national or international). Such license is only valid for “Parade” or free practice sessions. It is NOT valid for competition. The insurance coverage is identical to the national license; only the international practice license covers for repatriation insurance.
How to proceed?
On receipt of the documents the CRMB secretariat will verify them to make sure all documents have been transferred correctly, will CRMB stamp them and forward them to the FMWB. Few days later you will receive your license
Pilots residing outside of Belgium
Whatever nationality you may have, this license procedure is identical to the one for pilots residing in Belgium adding some specifications:
