2017 Cyclocross Race Timing Chip Policy

For the 2017 cyclocross racing season, MFG Cyclocross, Cross Revolution, NW CX Cup and Wednesday Night Worlds will be using the Dual Tag timing chip. If you already have a timing chip from a previous season please have it tested at registration at your first race. If you need a new chip it can be purchased for $5 at Registration and is guaranteed to work for 1 season. In future seasons, chips must be tested at the first race and if they don’t work, a new chip must be purchased.

Please note, this is not a rental charge. The chip is yours to keep. This cost is a direct pass through cost to Center Event for materials and labor.

Chips will be sold on site at each race.

Timing Chips and Bib Numbers:
If this is your first race of the series please stop by Registration to pick-up your bib number and purchase your timing chip.

Both chip and bib must be worn during races. Please make sure you use your MFG Cyclocross series number. Riders not wearing a timing chip or a bib number will be disqualified. Numbers are pinned on the jersey on the back of the left shoulder. Timing chips are to be mounted to the helmet.

Riders racing two categories will be assigned separate bib numbers and chips.

If you have had any issues with scoring at the last two MFG Cyclocross races please stop by Registration on Sunday to confirm we have the correct timing chip number for you. A number of you have multiple chips and/or family members racing as well so some mix ups may have occurred on our side or your side. Best to double check data.

Sponsor Spotlight: The Athletic

MFG Sponsor: The Athletic

Website: www.theathleticcommunity.com

Instagram: @theathletic

What The Athletic does:

  • The Athletic is a local Portland company founded by Jeremy Dunn and Julie Krasniak.  The Athletic pioneered the modern cycling sock craze with the introduction of their PDX Carpet sock in 2013.
  • In addition to a retail space, a web store, and a cyclocross racing team, The Athletic also hosts a podcast under the name Transmissions with guests inside and outside the cycling world.
  • Cycling kit design has always been a strength and a priority at The Athletic.   You can see their latest kit design here.

Why we like The Athletic:

If you ever get the chance to drive over to the sleepy village known as Portland, it’s absolutely worth taking a stop at The Athletic.   Their space is ultra cozy and merchandised nicely with lots of stock on hand.  One of the things we like most about how the store has been curated centers around the publications on hand, as well as the obvious fondness for sports other than cycling.

Five things you should know about The Athletic:

  1. Garrett Chow is The Athletic’s design director.  You might remember him from this project.
  2. The newest wool sock collection in dusty teal is proving to be the most attractive yet.
  3. Jeremy knows East Coast cyclocross 
  4. Julie knows professional European cyclocross
  5. Yes, Jeremy and Julie are Cycling’s Coolest Couple.
