This year we will be implementing chip timing for all races and all categories.
Series Riders: You will be given a chip and a bracket when you pick up your race numbers. This will be your chip for the entire season. We will be able to show you where the chip should be installed on your bike. The cost of your chip and bracket are included in your series registration fee. If you are going to have a second bike in the pit, you will need to purchase a second chip and bracket when registering. The cost will be an additional $10.00.
Please do your best to attend one of the early number pick up sessions as more time will be required and time is limited on the first day. Note: There will be no number and chip pick up between races on the first day. All riders must pick up their numbers and chip by 8:30 a.m.
Day Riders: You will be given a chip and a bracket when you pick up your race numbers. You will be charged a $20 deposit for the chip and bracket for that day’s race when you register online through CCN. You must return your chip and bracket at the end of your race, and you will be given $20 cash back. If you do not return your chip and bracket that day, you forfeit your $20. You will not be able to use that chip again in future races, so you must return it.
Placement of the chip:
The best location is on the seat post with zip ties but if that’s not possible then use the seat stay. If using the seat stay it’s probably best on the non drive side. We’ll have an antenna set up both sides of the course so tags can be mounted on either seat stay if necessary. The tags should be oriented as close to parallel to the wheel as possible. Tags should be removed from the bikes between races especially if the bikes are being transported outside the vehicle on bike racks. The mechanical vibration from the wind over time can damage the chip inside the tag making it unreadable.
