Number and Chip Pick Up
Please take advantage of the early number/chip pickup sessions. This year there will be sessions offered before Race 1 and also before Race 2 in order to process as many riders as possible before these busy early season race days. Each rider that picks up their numbers and chip early increases the chances of the races running on time the first two weeks, as there are many, many riders that will need to pick up. You may pick up for a friend or teammate if you bring their UCI License or Citizen Permit with you. In the case of under 18 riders, you must also have the signed waiver with you.
For season riders and Race 1 single day riders:
Friday, September 22nd 3-8 p.m. at The Cyclery
Saturday, September 23rd 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Cyclery
For season riders and Race 2 single day riders:
Saturday, September 30th 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Cyclery
Timing Chips for this Season
If you were a season rider in 2016, you may not use your 2016 chip again this year. You will be given a new one (included in your season fee). However, if you reuse your black bracket (that sits on your seatpost) this season, you will receive $5 off your registration fee.
Any riders using a pit bike must have a chip on it, otherwise timing is not possible. For those who bought an extra chip for your pit bike last season, you can use it again this fall. If you want to use your 2016 season chip for this purpose, that is also an option. You will need to let us know when you register that you are using it. In either case, the chips must be scanned again this fall. This is best done at the early pick up sessions, but must be done before your first race.
