I just started getting into the sport and I have a helmet, gloves, and boots but nothing else.

how comfortable are you with falling over and hitting your elbows/knees/chest/back on something without any protection?

having done the course last year, you will fall over since your starting out in dirtbike riding. the course isn't that difficult for someone who has riding skills but for someone who is starting out, its a lot to take in.

my advise is go out to your local bike shop and pickup some gear. face it, your going to fall over and your going to want to get back up and continue the day without getting hurt (well lessening the chances at least).
