I’ve decided that I’m all for chip timing. I DO NOT think a promoter should be forced to use it but I am willing to accept it as our future as it is in running races, xc ski events, mountain bike events etc. It would have been nice (for example) to have gone over to the registration tent at Durand yesterday to see the places of not only my race but the other categories as well. I don’t think the additional cost will outweigh the benefits of chip timing in the limited events where it will be required and we will find that it’s a huge benefit to us all. All you have to do is remember to bring it. To rent for just the road season it will be $30 or just the cross season $15 or both for $45. If you would like to purchase your own it is $95. The chip has a 3 year warranty. Mike Delany will be available at Opus for further details and I also have his form for chip season rental and could email it to you.
