Bike checking on this event requires us to check you have had the correct bike number for our timing system. It is ultimately the rider's responsibility to ensure the bike is event capable, unless we see something untoward. If in doubt please ask a Race Official.
Riders will be sent out in numerical order on both the Practice and Lap 1. After the times are compiled at the end of Laps 1, riders will be lined up from fastest to slowest to ensure fair play on the second laps.
Riders will be lined up in rows of 25, as designated from their qualifying times from Saturday’s races. This will be a mass start approach.
The system we use is Webscorer. This system is used the world over and the accuracy of this system is to the microsecond. Not only can it accommodate our main races, but also the varying stages, multiple start and stop points, but also checkpoints too. Approaching the finish line we record your time by pressing the clock symbol and once you ride further along and stop we then assign your bib number. This way you can be speeding over the Finish Line without having to stop and without us needing to know your race bib (might be covered by mud or come off).
We use two timing points. One at the Start Line and one at the Finish Line. The timing units work independent of each other and sync at the end of the race. This allows for riders to commence their race in any order which helps keep the race flowing.
We use just one timing module to record the Start and Finish and three separate checkpoint timing modules to record the race times, laps and checkpoints passed. Riders will be set off in a Mass start approach with the timer running for everyone riding. At the end of the race we can sync these up and provide a breakdown of each lap and how far a rider has progressed.

Race results for qualifying positions for the Main race are compiled on Saturday evening and posted online.
Sunday's race results take us two days at present to compile the data. this is to allow us to add in the additional rider details from those that enter on the Sunday and double-check the independent checkpoint data, to ensure it tallys correctly. Plus we can separate out by class, age, etc to provide as much information for riders and race officials as possible.
