Once activated, it is imperative that Racers DO NOT allow their race timing chips to idle near the start or finish beacons; the chips will constantly read the times broadcast by the beacons. The timing chips have a capacity of 100 time stamps and will quickly run out of space. After reading 100 time stamps, the timing chip will no longer read any more times. As a result, no times will be recorded, and you will be declared a DNF.

Enduro Racers MUST hand in their timing chips within 15 minutes after finishing the last stage, or they will be penalized 1 minute. After 30 minutes, racers will be DQ’d from the event.

Racers MUST be present at the Series Final Award Ceremonies or at the Race Award Ceremony to Receive Awards and/or Cash Payouts!
