Cycling BC has purchased a chip timing system (Winning Time) for use at road, cyclo-cross, and track races.
This new system has been purchased in an effort to help ensure timely and accurate race results for race participants and to provide valuable support to race officials. The Timing Chip System will be used at the discretion of the Race Organizer.
Timing Chip’s can be rented by participants on a race by race basis for $10 or purchased outright.
Purchased Chip: Purchased chips can be returned to Cycling BC at the end of the 2012 race season for a $25 re-reimbursement. Riders wishing to keep their chips can do so and use if for additional seasons without further cost.
Rented Chip: A rented chip must be returned to the race official at the end of the race.
Chips can be rented for $10 at the race. Riders renting a chip will be required to provide a deposit and leave some for of personal ID (Driver’s License, etc.) both of which will be given back to the rider when the timing chip is returned.
Active Chip System
There are two types of chip timing systems used in the sport of cycling; active and passive. An active transponder consists of a battery-powered transceiver (chip), connected to the bike, that emits its unique code when crossing a finish line. A passive transponder does not contain a power source and is more suited to mass participation events where the order of finish is less critical. Our Active Chip System will have an accuracy of 0.01 seconds at high densities and speeds over 120 Km/h / 75 mph.
