Concussion Policy - What happens if I have a Concussion?

When an incident report form is completed and it notes that an individual has had a suspected or confirmed concussion, a medical suspension of 1 (One) year will be applied to the Member's profile.
If you do have a concussion, you are not able to return to riding until you are cleared by a Medical Professional.
