What are timing transponders?
Timing and scoring complete fields of bicycle racers at road and cyclocross events can be time intensive for human judges. With the implementation of active RF-ID timing transponders used by each racer in an event scoring, lap times and overall placement can be dramatically improved.
During the 2016/17 cyclocross season the race|result ActivePro system was implemented at all NTXCX weekends, WNX weeknight races and SCX UCI races. Since that season racers continue to experience fast, accurate results combined with lap timing for races (including average and fastest lap calculations). Moving into the 2018 Texas road season the system has almost become the standard for timing/scoring. All three Dallas weeknight criterium race series in addition to nearly a dozen weekend races will be implemented the same system to augment human officiating crews.
At these events racers will be required to have an ActivePro transponder affixed to their bicycle for scoring purposes. Racers are strongly encouraged to purchase their own transponder in order to avoid paying a per use rental fee in addition to the extra time picking up and returning the transponder after each event. Each transponder is guaranteed by the manufacturer for five years and costs less than two craft beers per year. Grab your timing transponder today!
