Thread: XC NPS Laptop Timing System review

  1. Default XC NPS Laptop Timing System review

    The Cycling Ireland Offroad Commission is pleased announce that the D.U.R.T. laptop timing system introduced this year for NPS rider registration and race-timing has demonstrated excellent capability over the space of the past 4 NPS races where the hosting clubs (Madigan CC, MADMTB, XMTB, EPICMTB) have embraced and utilised the system very successfully.
    As a measure of accuracy, in terms of recording of recording NPS lap times, a comparison of the lap-times from Red Tag Timing to those of the Senior categories lap times for NPS # 8 resulted in a match rate of 99.97% which is a very effective demonstration of capability.
    I would like to extend our thanks firstly to Gav Doran from EPICMTB who originally sourced and demonstrated the sytem to the Offroad Commission, and of course the hosting clubs for adopting this new system and proving it’s value to the Irish XC NPS racing scene.
    Gav also advised the Offroad Commission on the Active Europe on-line signon/registration system which again has been extremely valuable in saving clubs a lot of admin hours and hassle which has reduced the on-the-day registration by approx 60% over the past few NPS races which is a great help to the hosting clubs and also means reduced sign-on queues/wait times.
    In review, there have been many great learnings from the 2009 XC NPS season which we intend to carry-through into 2010 and beyond and continue our drive to increase race numbers, promote XC MTB racing, and make every year even more successful and enjoyable for XC racers.
    Special thanks to all the sponsors, hosting clubs and the racers who spend the time and effort to prepare, travel and attend the events!
    Fergal Kilkenny on behalf of Cycling Ireland Offroad Commission
