Enduro Racers must be present when their class is called up to activate their chips. Do not start the race without doing so or you will not get your racing times and be DQ’d.

 

 

 

The NEUTRAL PIT AREA is the Vale Camping area, Ramshead and the K1 Mountain Base Areas including those Parking Lots, no assistance allowed elsewhere including the transfers or race segments.

 

We will NOT have printed maps for this event as the course is easy to follow, so if you want one please print it.

 

$100 ENDURO TIMING CHIPS We will be using our SIAC Fly By timing system for this ENDURO event. Please note if you do not return the SIAC Timing Chip you will owe us $100. Yes they cost that much. Other enduro series require the racers to use their own or rent them plus a deposit. We trust our racers until proven otherwise so please make sure to return the chip if you decide to leave early.

 

Please Note: GPS units on bars or stem may interfere with the SIAC Timing Chip so it’s best not to use one

 

Enduro Racers must be present at the racers meeting where we will activate their chips.

 

CANNONDALE Bike Class – The Cannondale Ebike Class is NOT competing this weekend

NO Ebikes allowed this weekend at Killington. If a racer is using an ebike, electric motorcycle or gas motorcycle on the Killington property, they will incur a time penalty or disqualification. Sorry about this but we don’t want anyone to gain any unfair advantages.

 

KILLINGTON THULE SHOWDOWN T-SHIRTS WILL BE ON SALE FOR $10 AT REGISTRATION

 

At Killington we will be hosting ‘Rolling Awards” for Amateur/ Expert DH and aged grouped enduro classes.

 

This means you can pick up your medals and any prizing immediately after the results have been posted and the 15 minute “Protest Period” have passed. We will have the podium and backdrops set up for podium pictures. We will host a quick awards ceremony after both events have ended for all Pro Racers, the Oakley Showdown, the Oakley Speed Zone, the FTD Stage and the Climbers Challenge.

 

We plan on following the same procedures for the balance of the season, the race days are long and we know you all want to get home as soon as you can.

 

We will have onsite registration available, IF the events are not sold out beforehand.

 

Pro Racers Must be on the podium when called to receive any prizing – For all other classes we will be calling up the top 5 racers 15 minutes after their class has completed and the results have been posted.
