CHECK": After you have raced once,
each following week you will ride through
the speed check/finish chute lane prior to the
race start. Just have cash (or a check in the proper amount)
in hand and ride through our
electronic check in system. EZ and FAST! (You MUST have your number plate with you or attached to your bike for Speed Check!)
DO NOT FORGET YOUR NUMBER PLATE! It is your life and soul! You might notice that it contains your number AND a timing chip
so don't lose it or a new one will set you back $5!
GET YOUR CALF MARKED. You MUST have your
(different from start order) marked on your left
calf. NOT having a class ID is a protestable
infraction, it is only fair to know who you
are racing against. (Seat post stickers also
START PROCEDURE: eBike, Junior Beginners
and Adult First Timers in first start session. The
(main) start waves
will begin with ProExpert, and work back to the Beginners. Please LISTEN for your class to be called up. If you start with the wrong class you will be
disqualified. Here is the start sequence.
LAPS: You will be going under the lap timing arch each lap. This will give you lap times.
On your last lap you will
stay right and finish by going into the finish
chute. (same chute as the Speed Check)
FINISH LINE: The finish line is BEFORE the lap timing arch!
You must SLOW DOWN upon entering
the lap arch.
FINISH CHUTE: Go through the finish chute and stay in order, this is your finish position so DO NOT PASS in
the finish chute. We scan your chip to record your actual finish order.
The arch is for timing your LAPS.
Yes, we use chip timing
at PCRS. Although very accurate, it is not
fool-proof. We will still run a video and other
back up systems. For this reason, after you
finish under the Lap/Finish timing arch You
MUST STAY IN ORDER AFTER YOU CROSS UNDER THE TIMING ARCH
AND CONTINUE INTO THE FINISH CHUTE.
DO NOT GET ANYWHERE NEAR
THE ARCH OR FINISH CHUTE AFTER YOU FINISH!
- No number plate with chip, no score.
- Number plate must be properly installed - see
RULES page for instructions
on how to properly install your plate.
- Absolutely no crossing through the lap/finish
arch area unless you are racing. (During
practice, prior to the race is OK)
- NO bikes
in or near the scoring/timing
area or timing arch unless directed.
REMEMBER: These are not the National
Championships.... we are all here for FUN and
training! You are racing for a t-shirt!
