I agree. That is my point. BUT WHO DECIDED TO APPLY RULE 8.7 TO WEIGHT? And on what authority? Given that riding light in a division is labeled fraudulent and the penalty is the loss of all your points and miles for the year, I would think that riders should be bound *only* by what the rules say.

NATRC has a rule about weight. Their rule says you have to ride in the same weight division for the whole ride year and if you lose too much weight, then "The minimum weight must be made up with dead weight, pound for pound".

FEI has rules about weight. You have to weigh in at 75kg for 3 & 4 Star events and 70kg for 1 & 2 Star events. No dates are involved. If your weight is too low, "...weight control must be carried out before the start".

And what is the AERC rule about weight? As I see it, our rule is Rule which says to ride in a division, you have to meet the minimum requirement. Period. No dates. No carrying weights. Just weigh more than the minimum. If you lose weight but want to stay in a heavier division, nothing says you CAN'T carry weights to do that. But nothing says you HAVE TO carry weights either. And nothing says you MUST ride in the same weight division for a whole ride season.
